M*Carbo, would love to see your take on an iron sight solution for the Ruger 10/22 Takedown Lite. I assume there are a lot of these out there and it’d be worth investigating, at least. A red dot is great but would enjoy some simple iron sights for plinking.
It is a shame that there is no tap or setup for a front/rear sight pair. I wonder if there is warping on the barrel due to heat or other “punishment” so they skipped it deliberately, thus requiring a scope or other “advanced” optic (and hence making it less “lite”.) Though it would probably be mitigated from the shroud and the tension on the lite’s barrel.
I haven’t yet seen a solution for this. A front lower rail would be nice too, maybe a mod. design that provides a front lower rail AND a front sight solution! Upper rail on front would allow maybe a flip-up sight pair, rear being mounted on the factory weaver rail. Those vents do make things tricky…
