Things I liked:Appears to be solid and well made. Mounted with no problems to my Hammerli AR20. Sighting in at 10 meters was no problem.
Things I would have changed:As others have pointed out, an instruction manual would be lovely. Also, how about using METRIC allen heads instead of BSA (English). I know it's a Texas company, but really.......
What others should know:Seems to be a decent value for the money. Hopefully the threading for use of Iris diopters will not prove to be non-standard.
Things I liked:Great service from PyramydAir. I got the sight in 3 days. Also, I had some questions about the operation of this sight and they gathered the data promtly from the manufacture and got it to me fast. About the sight: Heavy, solid, good materials, wide range of verticle adjustment, and holds the adjustment well.
Things I would have changed:The manufacture should include a owners manual. Also, make it with a metal peep vs a plastic one. Also, the 1/8 MOA adjustment is just too much clicking for 10m distance. A standard 1/4 MOA would be more usable for 10m target shooting, and would require less turning.
What others should know:I hope to be the first person in over 2 years to attempt a review of this product. This is a solid built sight, and with very tight adjustments knobs. Nevertheless, it's easy to adjust large verticle adjustment screw on the left side of the sight. Also, easy to disassemble. I lubed mine up with lithium grease to smooth out the wheel adjustments. The peep hole is made of plastic. If you like target shooting this holds the zero in good. I re-mount it every time I shoot and have no need to adjust the sight. However, if you change pellets from 7.0gr light to heavy 8.2gr, and need to move the zero more than one inch, it will require a lot of turning and even to re-position the sight on it's mount with the verticle height adjustment screw. Nevertheless, I'm hapy with it. This rear sight along with the Airforce Front sight are a great match. These sights give me a clear target picture when I shoot bullseye.
Things I liked:Adjustments are decent, and you can tune it to zero for your favorite pellet, and fine tune on the fly. It's metal and solid. Great Pyramydair service, got it in 3 days. This aperture sight has a wide range of height adjustment from mild to extreme. And, it fits my Daisy Avanti 853CM and is very adjustable. I can get my eye close to the sights for a good picture sight without tilting my head forward and sideways.
Things I would have changed:Even though it is a no-brainer to mount and adjust, a manual would be nice. Rear aperture is plastic, and the peep hole was drilled off-center, which will negativly affect accuracy if turned.
What others should know:I would compair this sight to the quality and precision of the Daisy Avanti aperture sight that came with my Avanti 853CM. However, the AirForce has the ability to adjust the knobs to zero, and has a better height adjustment that most pictures do not show. The wide range basic height adjustment is on the left side, and can be set up very high to fit high front globe sights without using riser mounts. Along with the AirForce front globe sight, this allows me to raise up the sights and keep my head erect without tilting head forward or sideways. Thus, much more comfort in shooting offhand. The only problem is the plastic aperture that was drilled offcenter. I replaced it with my Avanti metal aperature by wraping some plumber's tape around the aperture's screw in, and now it fits well enough until I get a diopter that will fit it. If you want more adjustability in your sights, this rear sight with the AF front global sight will give you the adjustability for shooting comfort, which often results in better accuracy.
