Kelly,
Just another quick thought on cost. About the only way to keep cost down on your design would be to manufacture them on a CNC machine.
On my brake, there are about 25 separate machine and set-up operations and I still do them "old school". It is very time consuming and costly in man hours.

One like that made out of steel that has a dovetail and takes an M14 front sight would be very nice.

I'm not a fan of the HK style hooded front sights.

Exactly what we've done...The CNC machine is the only way to go. We're machining this from a solid block of metal. Only the sight post & set screw are add-ons...

I love the HK-style hooded front sight. You should see the sight picture through my Williams peep sight...darn near perfect!

How hard would it be to get set up to produce two styles?

It depends on how different the styles are, one from another...

I was just thinking about what was mentioned about an M14 style sight. I am completely clueless about what goes into the machining. It is well outside my area of understanding.

It would just require a simple dovetail on the unit that would allow for the use of M14 front sights.

Default Prototype #2 Finished

Here is our second prototype, made from Alloy 7075-T6 Mil Spec. This photo is a before shot. We've sent it down for hard anodizing in a finish that will look somewhat like MP3. We can also do it in a clear that matches stainless steel well, and a satin black that will match blue steel nicely. I'll mount it & take it our for more testing when it comes back. We're now calling this simply the "Reaper" to avoid patent issues...

Default More Tests...

Ah, Saturday is here...more tests with a new alloy material and hard anodized finish. We're confident enough now that we've set aside 25 AK-style ball sight posts. We could actually have an initial run within weeks...

Kelly,
Let me know how the testing goes, how many rounds fired, etc.
Do you have a bore scope to inspect the inside surface area of the brake after your testing ??
