I tried to do the same thing:

The rear tech sight and Nodak front sight should work well, if you can mount the rear tech sight at the right height it was made for.
My problem was that I purchased a 10/22 receiver that had a milled picatinny rail, while the tech sight was made for a 3/8" rail.

I tried various rear sights for picatinny/weaver rails, but they all sat too high, or felt very cheap. I also tried a 3/8" rail adapter, but the sights sat too high for the Nodak front sight.

In the end I went with a 2-7 scope with adjustable focus and it went very well.
If I had to do it again I would get the drilled and tapped non-railed receiver and put the right rail on it, and that would make it flexible to put iron sights and anything else that attaches via the wider weaver/picatinny rails as well.
