Skinner Sights are hand crafted in my small shop in St. Ignatius, Montana.  Machined from solid steel, stainless steel or brass bar stock, the parts are hand fitted to close tolerances.  We have worked hard to design sights which are not only extremely functional and rugged, but to also complement the firearm.    I make a limited number of high quality sights at a reasonable cost to the customer.   Skinner SightsTM  are inexpensive, but not cheap and my customer service is second to none.  Through field testing I continue to improve the designs for function, durability and appearance. 
 

 Our
sights are guaranteed with a 30 day, money back,  policy.  Your satisfaction is very important to me.  If at any time your sight needs to be repaired, I do so at no charge.  


NOTE:  Some of the photos on this site are of  early production.  There may have been some very slight changes in design to some models that will enhance performance but not shown in these photos

We Engrave SKINNER SIGHTS on most models.  Some of these photos were taken prior to implementing engraving as standard on our sights.  We will update photos as available.

            Why choose a peep sight for Rifles?

375_mod_70All military battle rifles and many "Dangerous Game Guns" have been fitted with peep sights for at least the last 70 years.  There is a good reason for this.  They are the fastest and most accurate iron sight you can put on your rifle.  


(This 375 H+H has been used on Cape Buffalo, Lions, Elephants and other dangerous game in Zimbabwe for over 50 years.  Note the aperture rear sight.  It never fogs, breaks, loosens, or goes out of adjustment.)

Here is some information on sighting errors as put forth by no less than, Col.Townsend Whelen, in his book on reloading, "Why Not Load Your Own," published in 1949 when the use of telescopic sights was a rarity. With normal eyesight, either naturally or corrected by glasses, he found that the following list applied at a distance of 100 yards:

Open Rear Sight:
Accuracy is unpredictable due to lighting conditions (shoots away from side lighting, and high for overhead mid-day conditions).
Aperture Rear, Gold or Ivory bead front: 1.5 -2"

Aperture Rear, Black Post front:
1"
Aperture Rear, Aperture front: 1/2 to 3/4"
2-1/2x Scope: 1/4-1/2"
6x Scope: 1/8" to 1/4"
10x Scope: 1/16" to 1/8"
20x Scope: Practically None.

As you can see from the information above, the ability to sight using a aperture sight exceeds the accuracy of most rifles.
