I'm looking to start tinkering with a Ruger MKII Target pistol. I'm looking at rear sight options outside of what comes stock on the gun. My options are either a Volquartsen rear sight or Kensight. The Volquartsen is supposed to replace the stock factory rear sight with little to no issues. The Kensight option requires machining to allow the sight to fit in. It goes over the bolt stop which I'm not a fan of but it also brings the rear sight back some for a little bit of a better sight picture and slightly longer sight radius. It also requires a new front sight at a different height. 

Has anyone here used either option? What were your experiences? Thanks

I’ve installed both. The Kensights I installed this year required no machining. Probably a typographical error.

Another idea. There are two different types of Kensight models of rear sights for the Ruger MKII. Both with different body types and shapes. Again I'm curious as to your experiences comparing these. Jon if you've used either of these or anyone else. Thanks.

I have a Volquartsen installed, no issues and using the factory front sight. Only reason I replaced the OEM rear sight was that is was cocked a little bit and annoyed me enough to drop the extra coin.

This is a Volquartsen sight, works fine.  No fitting required.

This is a BoMar, the last one Gil Hebard had, I think.  Fitting it required milling relief under the leaf.  Trial fit and shoot it so you do not cut any more than you have to.  I believe the Kensight is like the Bomar.  The Bomar has a deeper notch which I like much better than the Volquartsen.  You may or may not need the taller front sight.  Either way it is a no-brainer to fit and find out.  Cutting out under the leaf also might require lowering the top of the takedown pin.  Be very careful of the reshape of the pin end so inserting past the recoil spring thing is not a pain in the _____.

About the different front sight.  Try it first.  We hold low 6  so you may not need it.
