Review of Tech-Sight TSR200 (for Ruger 10/22)

Kevin Felts at AllOutdoor has reviewed the Tech-Sight TSR200. These sights are, hands down, the best iron sights for the Ruger 10/22. I have been using them for many years and can’t say enough good things about them. Kevin wrote …

The Ruger 10/22 is an amazing rifle, but if there’s one part on the Ruger 10/22 that needs improving, it’s the sights. If you want to be kind, we can say the factory sights are of a poor design. If we want to be honest, the factory sights are terrible.

The rear sight has these little bitty small screws with heads that are vulnerable to snapping in half. Shortly after I bought my Ruger 10/22 in 1986, I tried to adjust the rear sight for elevation. The head on the screw broke. This also happened to a buddy of mine. He bought his Ruger 10/22 shortly after I did, tried to adjust for elevation, and the screw head broke.

My only suggestion, if like me you use your .22 rifle for pest control after dark, is to replace the A2-style front post with one that has tritium/fiber optics inserts. Meprolight’s Tru-Dot Night Sight sell for around $45.

    I must say the Hyperlinks should be pertinent to the article at hand.

  • I agree, I shouldnt have to go to google to find the article you are talking about

    • gunsandrockets

    WTF? This article has zero information about the Tech-Sight.

    • Cknarf

      You want some info on the Tech Sights for 10/22? Fine.

      They kick ass. Seriously. Buy some now.

    I think the link to the review at AllOutdoor got lost.

    To add to this confusion, I’ve had zero experience with the 10/22 Tech-Sights, but years ago mounted them on a Yugo SKS with extreme success. Thought for sure that I’d have a ‘floating’ rear sight problem, like so many SKS scopes turn out to become, yet those tech-Sights were rock solid, easily adjusted & remained accurate until I sold that rifle. Best upgrade I could have put on that firearm… tightened groups from 7″-8″ down to 3″-4″ @ 100 yds. j l m

      X2. They rock on an SKS.

    Many of those people just learned to point shoot.

    I’ve never had a real issue with the standard sights on my old Ruger 10/22 even after years of hard field use, but I will admit that the Tech-Sight TSR200 is a very intriguing option for upgrading the rifle in time to come.

    Thanks for the heads up I feel a bit sobered by the apparent financial need of a website to monetize links but it is what it is.

      Ducks that we have to opt out of something we never wanted in the first place

  • Motor-T

      Fyi, keep it bookmarked I’ve had to opt out 3 times now, after I clear my cookies and such
