Homemade Iron Sights - QEV Update

Unread postAuthor: jmez1996 » Sun Aug 28, 2011 12:13 am

Hey everyone

link to the gun before changes: http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/viewtop ... tml#311274

I have been working on a new semi-auto QEV rifle but in the mean time i have made a few changes to my old one. i removed the scope and decided to make some mounted iron sights as i usually use this gun from a range maxing out about 10m making a scope useless. I am fairly impressed by the results.

comments, suggestions :)
thanks,

So are we

One thing that I don't like is the quick connect fitting... somehow I wouldn't feel safe when my eye was so close to a QC on a gun filled to 500 psi or so

I can hit a coke can with decent ammo from 10m using these sights which is good enough for me :)

yeh i was the same when i first built it but i have gotten used to it and i generally only use it around 200psi so it feels pretty safe now.

I've used brass quick connect fittings at 1,000psi repeatedly no problems. The ball valves went first :P.

Now that is how you put together an awsome looking gun KISS style.

Love it!

Yeh both sights are adjustable and removable but i generally keep them in the same position and have learned to adjust my aim for distance/elevation.

Probably not that significant in terms of the accuracy of the launcher and the range you're shooting at, but you're better off with a small notch as opposed to a circular hole.
