Dove Peep Sight For 22?

I recently discovered the awesomeness of peep sights and decided to take the scope off my 22 and put a peep sight on it. I need one that fits a dovetail. It is for a marlin 60. I am kinda on a budget so around $20-$30 would be good. Let me know what you find!

This is a little over twice your budget, but it brings the aperture nearer your eye, which is kind of what is needed to make a peep sight work.

The idea is that your eye naturally centers the front sight in the circle formed by the aperture. Smaller apertures are usually sharper, at the expense of not working well in dim light.
