    My custom Crosman 2300KT arrived today.

    And as soon as I unboxed it I had a huge holy crap moment, I had forgotten to order a rear sight for it. Looks like I will be calling customer service in the morning to see if I need to send it back or if I can just order the sight and install it myself. Senior moments are a real pain in the donkey.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    I like it!

    I used to compete in NRA air pistol...I was about 30, but I really enjoyed it and it taught me more about accurate shooting than anything I have done. I shot a Daisy 777 pistol. This experience really gave me an appreciation of the quality of some of the guns made by the less than high end companies. The 777 had a Walther made barrel, had consistent air and was capable of world class accuracy for about $120 in 1989.

    Called Crosman customer service (very nice folks) this morning, got the sight on order plus the rep explained how to install it. Should be here in 5 or 6 days then I can give a range report.

    What sight did you go with, I think the choices are peep or notch maybe?

    I went with the notch since that is what I am most familiar with on handguns.

    Iíve read nice reviews on it. Seems like itíll be a fun and inexpensive way to work on sight and trigger control. Look fwd to hearing your report on first shots.

    I guess the peep sight would be for those that went with the carbine grip/butt stock and get their eye close enough to the sight. Or is there a difference for a peep sight meant for pistols?

    I have never used a peep sight on a handgun so I do not know if there is any difference, I have used peep sights on rifles and for me they are as good as a scope out to 100 yards beyond that a scope is preferable.
