What is the general consensus on these sights? Are they any good?

Best thing you can do to a 10/22 for the price IMO.

They are sweet.

I'm an iron sight guy.  Red dots and scopes are nice, but irons make you a better shot even with the other stuff IMO.

If AR style peep and posts are good for you, you'll love these.  They might seem a bit pricy.  That more than gets covered if you can use cheap .22's for practice.  (If that ever exists again!)

I agree. I put them on my '72 10/22 and love them. My buddy has a newer one and is trying to figure out how to get the front sight off after trying mine.

Got them on one of my Takedowns. They're solid. Installed them, went out, started ringing 4inch steel targets at 50 yards without adjusting anything. This was shooting bulk pack ammo.

Thanks, I may buy some of the TSR100 for my 10/22.

I absolutely love my tech sights. I have both the 100 and 200 series. I use the in competition and shoot very well with them.

Check out Nodak Spud too.

I wish the Tech Sights front sight was machined to fit better.

Bought mine last month and they fit just fine.  Only problem I had was Ruger installed my front sight so damned tight that no amount of pounding would make it budge.  I had to buy a sight pusher and that just barely had enough oomph to break it free.

I prefer Nodak sights.   The front isn't as fine, but they are much higher quality overall

What is the best price you have seen them for? Do you need Loc-Tite for them?

Do you have the old aluminum front sight or the new steel one?  The aluminum one was crap.  The new one is awesome.

I bought mine just as they introduced the new steel version. They traded mine out when I complained.  The steel one is made to clamp into the front sight.  It's solid.

I hope it is ok and not a hijack that I post this here because this happened to me and I haven't figured out what I am going to do about it
See the dovetail snapped off. I remember installing it thinking that the metal was kind of thin.
Now this happened taking it out of the truck; the gun was in a gun sock, slid in the sock, and hit the concrete nose first. My error, but it did snap off.  
(sorry if the pic is upside down, my photo skills are nonexistant)
I think the sites are great, very accurate until it broke off!
Edit - it is steel/attracts a magnet

I'm not gonna blame that on anything but the concrete. While an AR FSB is very strong I'm not going to expect a hobby set of .22 rifle sights to take hits on concrete.

A new base is $12. No biggie.

I doubt the stock sight would have faired better. This doesn't deter me at all.

$12 isn't too bad. I'll order the part, problem solved.
