I am looking for peep sights for a hawken.

I have seen many which are tang-mounted, but this is darn silly, in my opinion, since the tang is only loosely connected to the barrel with a hooked breach design!! you might as well just make a sight out of Jell-O!

does anyone make a peep sight that fits on the barrel, perferably where the rear blade sight normally goes? any with an aperature big enoguh to use that far away from the eye?

Williams makes a barrel mount rear sight, that can have a peep aperture added, since William's use the same size dovetail for their sight blades and peeps.

Assuming you have a flat top barrel, you'd need a WGOS Guide Open Sight, flat base, #962-650, OR a WGOS/Dovetail Lock base that fits the existing rear barrel dovetail, and locks in place, #962-614-350.
You would probably use a Ghost Ring Aperture #962-100-901.
All of this and more can be found at Brownell's at:

However, a peep mounted sight that far forward may not work really well. However, again, the 1903 Springfield had a barrel mounted peep feature on it's sight, and Williams is selling a peep sight that fits on the AK-47 barrel, soooo.
