It has possibilities. Have you tried advertising on Ted's site? They talk nothing but M-Ns there. SW

Please excuse the surroundings and the picture quality. I did this at home, not the shop, in response to some concerns that the cocking piece will move on the x and y axis and not only the z axis. The first part demonstrates that I have a standard sear, while the second and third parts give different views of the striker knob dropping.

You will see that the cocking piece only travels in the direction it's supposed to.

Regards,

Josh

cool idea. Is that a sling stud used as your prototype?

It is, and I'll probably keep using them in full production. The first prototype, not show, had a 10-32 bolt with a hole drilled in it.

Come to figure out, they already made what I need! Now I have these for sale, and coming will be ones tapped for smaller diameter inserts.

Hello,

I'm currently in the office/workshop. Orwell is on internet radio, and I'm filling sight orders.

I've also prototyped an interchangeable aperture rear peep. The first size is 3/32", which is my favorite size peep sight.

Pictures to follow later tonight or sometime tomorrow.

Regards,

Josh

The existing ghost ring is about 0.125". This aperture shown is 0.094.

I don't really like the 0.094" as it just falls in between ghost ring and not-ghost-ring, and if I go to production, the standard aperture size will be about 0.063 or so to start with, anyway.

I still like the ghost ring as it holds the front sight hood centered perfectly, but I understand those who desire the smaller aperture and will be trying it out myself shortly, before I start making it.

Also included is a slightly improved lockup to return the cocking piece to perfect zero every time.

I'm not sure it's needed, but it's there as a redundancy.

I'm also trying to watch the complexity as complexity = weight = slower lock time, which we don't want.

Josh
