Not sure they make them for lever actions, but Montana Vintage Arms is what I have on a sharps rifle.

Try sagebrush long shots should lead you to his videos. Wind is the guys name he passed a few years ago. He sure made long range open sights look easy.

I had a Williams 5d on a marlin 336. It did pretty well. A lot of reviews on it said that it would not work with the factory ramped front sight, but I had no issues with it. Had mine mounted in the rear scope base holes

Call Matthew Quigley Lol should be some sliding peep options out there. As there is a whole following of people out there shooting cowboy style levers, Sharps and falling block style rifles.
