    Browsing across the web for some Rossi 92 related stuff, looks like a peep sights are a way to go. I've looked at Marble, Skinner, Williams... then decided to try to make my own.
    So, this is a bit rough, one afternoon project of my peep sights, mounted on exsisting sight and in a few days on the range I will know if they are functional.

    I pulled the peep sight off an old .22. I had to put a shim of shotgun shell plastic in the dove tail, but it's still there holding zero after 30 years.

    I've thought about Skinner sights for my Marlin but I'm still waiting on that as I don't want to mess with the front sight.

    I'm looking forward to your range report! Very talented to produce your own!

Which Fajen marketed as drop-in. They weren't really. But it didn't take much work. They made fantastic rifles at a reasonable price.

    At the gun store I worked at we sold a truck load of barreled actions. Mostly in .30-06 (7.62 x 63) but others in 7 x
    57. The 8 x 57 was never very popular over here outside of surplus Mausers. At the time they were considered quite top of the line. They had really beautiful bluing. I find your Zastava more interesting than the Rossi.
    Actually, my Rossi 92 was imported by Interarms.

    I went to the range today to try my DIY peep sight, and I'm delighted! It is much more easier and natural to aim the target.
    This is group size at abot 40 yards. The bullets are Lee 358-158-RF.

    You scored big time. The 92in. 38/.357 is almost impossible to get here.

    Nice rifles, both of them! I really like the wood on the Model 92's stock. Obviously it shoots well too.

    So about that peep sight. Did you actually machine that yourself?
