when I say simple I mean simple.

a corner bracket, mounted by the tang screw. I need a longer screw.

Thats not a bad idea, a perfect ghost ring. The front site height would be a bit of a pain to figure out, but very doable.

Ebay has a guys that sells the tang screws in different lengths.

it lines up just right with the sights I have on that gun. I ordered an blank tang bolt from tow as well as  long tang screw. the tang screw I found was in 10-32, so worst case retap the trigger plate in 10-24 or 10-32.

have a die for .5m which is what I need. 10-24 is very close to that which I do have a die for as well.

If you can drill a hole and tap,why not tap tang for a hardware store thumb screw with a  hole drilled thru. Add a locknut and its adjustable for the vertical.

have not found any long enough to make to the trigger plate in the thread size. I also looked in to eye bolts. same there. not much luck for some reason.

right now still on the planning and concept stage.

could always take a threaded rod and cut to length, drill and mount an nut.

see if the tang bolts  I order will be long enough, worst case on those extra parts, not really a bad thing

think  I got it. found an long screw (2 1/2 maybe 3 inch) that was from something I was doing around the house. that was done and fix so I had an extra. cut a little off was not enough to work. so I added an rubber washer.

Get a threaded rod connector (or even several for more strength and adjustability) near the threaded rod at hardware. They are usually available in all machine screw sizes.

locking nut to lock down the tang, locking washer rod connector, second locking washer, sight, locking washers.

would not work well with the corner bracket set up, would block the line of sight. or will it scratch

I do have a couple m16/a2 apertures that I picked up pretty cheap. that will some what work with. put me off to the side about a little.

if I could every find the page I ran into that has a diagram of using the rear sight in line with the peep I would post that.

Threaded rod of proper size cut 2" longer than needed length; beat one end flat with hammer and anvil; shape & smooth, and drill a hole of predetermined diameter. Should take about an hour from beginning to end.
