So after looking into peeps for my new Chaser, and taking the rear sight apart, I think I've found a  cheap, good and easy way to get a peep on here. If you buy the rifle kit, you get a spare sight blade. Pop the one off the barrel band - it's now a spare. Now remove both windage screws and slide the blade out.  This is the part you need to alter. It could be as simple as gluing some stock on the existing blade, or you could print/mill/use your heat vision to ablate some stock to make a peep that screws in place of the factory blade.

My 3d printer is down at the moment, but since I have a spare sight due to purchasing the rifle kit, I might just glue some black ABS stock on, and maybe enlarge the peep just a tad more than the notch size.

i have, as you know been chewing on this idea as others have been posting and wonder is the peep the way to go 

Diana model 5 and 5G and model 6 and 6G and the Manu pistol and some others use a Globe style sight but just a blade in the back 

no target pistol that i can think of has a peep sight, so is a peep style sight needed at all

i understand the globe part, but i'm not sold on the peep part and then again this could just be a personal choice 

and your right the rear sight on it could be made a peep, mock it up with a tube of some sort, where is my glue gun and there got to be some pasta around here somewhere

I'm not that interested in the pistol version. I have a left handed kid I hope to start introducing to shooting this year. I wanted a peep and two stage trigger to teach him the fundamentals. (He's old enough for B.R.A.S.S - but not ready to learn about BRAS 🤣 ) Now I need to figure out how to put a sling on this stock so that it won't torque the barrel.

India ink didn't really stick well to the plastic guitar pick, but it worked well enough to say this is the easiest way to productize a peep. Have to zero it in if the weather holds. (Which brings up a point I dislike about the Chaser accessories - the case requires you to break it down.)

Otherwise great shooting little gun so far, and an excellent platform for my son. (Once he's old enough. Dad was NOT real thrilled with his maturity level during our first 'Hi, this is a gun and these are the rules' session. Maybe we'll try again at the end of summer .)

you could use the black tray out of a cd case, they happen to be 1/16 of an inch, but it is proof of concept and i like your idea
