I've enjoyed plinking with .22 pistols for years but I think better sights would shrink my groups. I have a Ruger MK 3 with a Volquartsen trigger kit. Stock sights are fine for plinking but not for getting a precision shot at 25 yards. They're too big. I can't detect much motion with these sights & the front blade is wider than my target. Rear sight gap is 1/8" & front sight is also 1/8" wide. I haven't found better sights online so I looked at other .22 pistols & I'm not finding target-grade sights for budget pistols. Wondering, what are my options? Can't afford Olympic grade pistols, I'm retired. Don't want a red dot. Have one & it helps but I prefer open sights. If anyone has found target-grade sights for a Buckmark, Victory or Ruger MK 3 please let me know. Anyway the Ruger is accurate. With the red dot it puts 10 shots in 1.25" at 25 yards with a rest. Wolf Match Target .22 ammo. My Canik TP9SF 9mm is almost as accurate. Has a FreedomSmith trigger.

A superior sight set.  My favorite by far.

That Kensight package looks good, in an old thread it was mentioned that the Kensight rear notch is deeper than the Volquartsen.

Thanks very much. I contacted Kensight for the widths & if they're narrower than my stock sights I'll buy them. They appear to be narrower in the pics. That Volquartsen also might be an option. It's a little more narrow than my stock rear sight.

Does anyone know the width of this front sight & rear notch? Kensight won't reply. I asked them on Facebook & through their website.

Well Kensight can't be contacted by email, phone or Facebook so for now I got a .090" front sight from Dawson Precision to replace the .125" I have now. Hoping the rear sight works ok with it. Might be a little wide, we'll see.

UPDATE: I saw an adjustable rear sight with a 0.110" rear notch & I ordered it from Volquartsen.
