yes i do I'll upload them soon they're kinda hard to draw with word so I'll try and scan them. .It involves a sort of bolt action style system.
Where you unclip the sight, unlock the bolt from a notch and push it up along the rail to which ever notch you want (they will be designated by distance) and lock it back down.When yo move it up it pushes the sight up and down because its in a wedge.Then you clip the sight back down.
.


Sounds really cool. I think I should start designing a sight for my semi-auto, nows that its nearing completion. I only have ine problem though. The hopper obstructs my line of view on the top, so should I make one that goes on the side or what?

Either put your sight off to the side slightly, or offset your hopper with a bent elbow like alot of the old-style paintball gun. It might be kind of late for you to change your design now though.

I had it in theories&accessories rather than how-to. I must have felt that it did not explain the manufacture in enough detail.
