Aperture sights?

Anyone know of some aperture sights that will fit a Marlin 981T bolt action? It has a 3/8'' dovetail on the rear and a drilled and tapped hole for front sight. Not sure what size the hole for the front sight is probabally #8 or #10 machine screw. I'm not objected to get the receiver drilled and tapped, but if there is an easier way i'll take it. Thanks

aperature sights

Dear Shooter:
You must be an old timer, or, a savy young shooter.
To my mind there are no better sights for hunting, or shooting than aperature (peep) sights.
Years ago, I used peep sights on 22s. I guess though we all get old and maybe need a scope but I still like the "openness" of the reciever sight.

I hope saying i'm a "savy young shooter" is a complement cause i guess that would be me. I'm thinking about getting into small bore target shooting. Cheap and fun.
