    20200702_102335.jpg Can you remove the peep aperture to provide a larger 'ghost ring'? I have heard that you can but can't see how. Any direction is greatly appreciated. Thinking it could come in handy in thick scrub chasing pigs. I believe my peep is the first of the three and ss the largest peep. Picture attached for clarification.

    Hello Rogan,
    Your Peep Sight is a Mk 3. I have a Mk1 Mk2 and two Mk3's. There is a discussion on SCC regarding Sako Peep Sights. My personal favorite is the Mk1.

    Cheers mate, I have tried to go through them all. None that I have found discuss dismantling them. Cheers for the reply. I'll try MK3 in my search. Thanks for the direction.

    Hi Rogan
    You should be able to dismantle the peep sight by first removing it from your rifle and then backing out the 3 windage and elevation screws from around the housing. When you reassemble it you will have to sight it in again adjusting the screws accordingly.
