How to Build Custom Iron Sights

Crysis 2010-04-23 23-21-33-06.bmp
In this instructable, I'm going to show you how to create iron sights for your spudgun, air rifle, or whatever you want to. They are made from sheets of pvc. If you can buy sheet pvc, that would be better but I am cheap so I made my own following these instructions. My design is based off of the sights of a chain gun/grenade launcher from Crysis: Warhead, but you can design your own sights if you want. I would recomend using MW2 to get different ideas for iron sights. Also, don't be fooled by how complex the sights I'm building look. You could make a basic set like what are on most pistols if you don't want to do too much work but still want sights.

Step 1: Get the Necessities

To make this project, you first must obtain pvc sheet. you can buy or make it. If you want to, you can use wood or some other kind of plastic, but I think that the PVC would be the strongest. (not that these have to withstand much force)

Materials:
PVC sheet
Gorilla Glue (or superglue)

Tools:
Pencil
Ruler
Graph Paper
Scissors
Scrollsaw (best for the precision but you could use a bandsaw or jigsaw)
Drill Press (or hand drill)
Assorted Drill Bits
Dremel with Sanding Attachment
Heat Gun
White Glue

You don't need all of the tools I have listed. You could get by with a dremel, drill/drillbits, and a heatgun.
