    simple rear sight design

    Post by Basilisk120 on Sun Jun 05, 2011 12:08 am

    First topic message reminder :

    Looking to add a simple rear sight to my crossbow.
    My two main design requirements:
    1. It has to be simple. to meet SCA rules on allowable crossbow sights. But at least in the Atenveldt rules it doesn't define simple Mad
    2. It should fold down. For safe storage and convenience

    So far I have made a prototype of the design out of cardboard and it proves the concept is viable. Next step is to work out how to mount it to the stock. First thoughts are to keep it simple and just use a couple of screws.

    Pictures of the prototype.

    Open


    Closed

    I'll keep on adding updates as things get down.

    Ideas are always appreciated for other simple sights as well or ways to mount this

    .

    The XIX rear sight looks like it want to turn to the left instead of forward. Perhaps the elbow we see in the picture, will act as an axis, and not be straight welded. What do you think?
