Yep, it will screw into the little dovetail base under a factory cva sight.

Seeing how its a peep sight, you'd actually be better off having a gunsmith drill and tap a hole closer to the breech plug so its closer to your eye.

I was thinking this but will it still work that far from the eye?

sure, it will actually look more like a ghost ring sight then due to the distance.

You'll probably end up pitching the screw-in aperture with it so far from your eye, but you can make it work that way.  Kinda depends on your eye and what you're used to. I prefer peeps close to my eye, but my hunting pard likes them far away just like you're proposing.

It's not going to work like a peep sight is supposed to work that far away. It will be more like a full buckhorn sight.

A peep should be close to the eye so you don't even look at it, but you look through it and concentrate on the front sight.

Kind of figured this I have Peep Sight on my Crossbow and it is close I like it.

More than likely I'll leave my sights the way they are, I've done well with them hunting.

If you have two screws 1 1/2" apart on your tang, you're ready to go with the regular Lyman peep. If only one hole but room for another, drilling and tapping the second would work.
