Don't know. I bought a Troy. Someone will know I'm sure, they will respond soon :wink:
Hey, rainman 74! I appreciate your reply. Please don't take this as mocking you, but I believe that you have the sight mounted backwards on the weapon. From what you described above, it appears to me that you might. I believe the sight should be mounted with the 'concaved' peep facing towards the muzzle of the weapon, and the 'tail', if you will, with the 'flip open' lever facing you. At least that's how I have mine mounted. If I am incorrect here, I'm sure someone will let me know. Perhaps it doesn't really matter which way the sight is mounted, and if this is so, your 'fix' has merit.

I noticed on mine that with back lighting the glare is distracting.
I took the sight apart and turned the aperture around 180Â°. After searching for about 1/2 hours for the small ball and spring that fell out I had it back together.
There is no glare and the surface facing the shooter is flat. The sight picture is very good.
Do you think there is any reason for the concaved side to be toward the shooter?
If it flips up toward your face, it can toss dirt in your eye....Reblyell said:...Perhaps it doesn't really matter which way the sight is mounted...
Can't argue with that point! So here's mud in your eye! :wink: Best!KuroNeko said:If it flips up toward your face, it can toss dirt in your eye....Reblyell said:...Perhaps it doesn't really matter which way the sight is mounted...
Understood! After checking mine out in bright light, you are correct . . . the glare is pretty potent! However, instead of reversing the blade like you did, I'm going to paint it over with black auto primer (like I do to other sights that 'glare' at me). It dries flat, and reflects nothing! As for your earlier question, sir . . . I can think of no reason as to why the concave side is towards the shooter's eye. Since the peep hole is the same size through (at least it should be!), the sight picture should be the same. Best!rainman74 said:My sight is mounted correctly. The aperture with the small hole has the concaved surface facing the shooter (as shipped from the mfg.and as shown in your 2nd picture).
The concave part of the apertur with the large hole is at the front (pointed towards the muzzle). They are opposite for whatever reason.
