    Hi Folks,

    Some people asked me to develop this:

    The adjustment screw is on the other side, where there's also a split lengthwise in the black metal tube protecting the fiber-optic (looks almost like a roll pin).

    The idea was to get it as visible as possible in all lighting conditions for something around reasonable cost.

    How's it look?

    Hi,

    People have been asking what this looks like on the rifle.

    Please excuse the rear sight. I can't multi-focus my camera.

    Overcast conditions. It has been raining most of the day. Taken 5pm or so.
