Entry rifle with peep and globe



Log in to see fewer ads
I want to buy my younger daughter a 22 rifle for 4H this year. My oldest uses my Kimber 82G but it is way too heavy for the young one. Other than a Savage FVT, are there any other entry level rifles that come from the factory with a peep and globe? Willing to spend around $500.

You might be able to find a Ruger American model 8328 rifle with 18" barrel. In 2016 Ruger shipped this limited edition lightweight rifle fitted with Williams sights for distribution through United Sporting Cos. Maybe they still have them. I paid around $345 for mine.

It's quite difficult to find a rifle to fill that gap for position shooting. Not many rifles are made with proper aperture sights that cost less than $1500+. Some of our 4-H NRA 3-P competitors use FVT's and do quite well. A few are putting Boyd AT-1 stocks, which help tremendously. I think that's your least expensive route until she can use the excellent Kimber 82g. Savage offers a special purchase program for 4-H members. It's a VERY good deal!

How small is your kid?
There are several folks who have put together a Bill of Materials to adapt the Savage Rascal youth rifle for a target peep rear sight and a globe front.

You could probably do about the same thing with a smaller lighter youth rifle of nearly any brand.

Another option is to hunt sites like Gunbroker and buy a used rifle that's already been converted by somebody else. That may actually be the most economical option - as the market doesn't put a large premium on target aperture sights. You buy the rifle for about the same price as a regular model - but you get $200-300 worth of sights and gunsmith work basically free.

My 8303 becomes a great 8328

I put the sights on my rim fire carbine. Over priced but worth the price. I use the post insert up front for better recognition shooting inside. Polished and worked the trigger to a safe 1.5 LB. Installed a Pig Whistle mag release. Stippled the butt pad for non slip and installed a second closer stud for my Harris bi pod. And put a V comp on the barrel. All set to rock now. Could not find a 8328 but they are not threaded so I guess this is better.
