Default Marlin Glenfield Model 60 sights

So I just got off the phone with Tech-Sights, LLC. and it appears they don't make a sighting option for the older Glenfield model with the wraparound front sight base...

I LOVE my rifle... lets get that out there right now... but I'd really like some better sights on it... Anyone got any alternatives besides the Tech sights?

I'm also looking into a DIP (diversified innovative products) trigger and a spring kit.

I have been unable to find any for mine as well. I had considered putting on a green laser sight but that would be cheating when it comes to target shooting.

Due to how the older-model front sight is mounted, you can theoretically thread/drill the hole/divot for a Tech-sight...
remove the old front sight, see what's there...may be a D/T hole, might just be a divot, ya never know
Get a Gunsmith to D/T for a Techsight if you don't have the tools/know-how...
and do NOT use a Hand-Held Drill or Dremel...EVER

Now, as far as the DIP T/G-Combo...great buy!!
However, make sure you've got a Square-backed T/G in there already, OR you'll have to do a little careful carving to make it fit.
Again, it is easy if you have the tools/know-how, but if you don't, seek a qualified gunsmith

It's not about the difficulty of the task - I've changed out, modified and retro-fit more than a handful of front sights on various guns. My issue is that I'd rather avoid making permanent modifications to the gun - I have the original stock in the closet untouched, and got an extra one to refinish - I've also got a spare trigger guard waiting for the DIP trigger (not replacing the whole trigger guard).

I'm aware it's a "cheap" gun (I paid $50 for the one in the picture) but it is what it is. The way things stand right now, the only shooting I've been able to engage in lately is plinking in my garage with CCI Quiet 22 ammo. Don't need the tech sights (or other aperture sights) for 50ft targets.

Edit to add: I didn't intend to come off "snarky" or anything and I appreciate the tips by the way.

Just out of curiosity, is the receiver and barrel from a model 75? It's just that I've never seen a model 60 with a wrap around front site like that. The wood on the stock has really nice grain, I know that Marlin/Glenfield have had many variants over the years, but it doesn't look like the typical birch that are on so many. Regardless, that is a sweet looking little rifle!
