Looking for instructions for reflex Sights on Rimfire Cartridge Guns

I recently started a project to make a takedown bow , and was looking at different Ideas to make my own sights for it.  I saw that people had made Reflex Sights for Airsoft Guns and Nerf toys, but I was wondering if these would actually work for a shotgun or Rifle. I didn't see any instructables for them specifically.   If anyone has any experience using these on a rimfire cartridge gun I would love to hear about it.

Idea for a Knex retractable sight

Ok, I had an idea where There would be this gun. The sights are hidden in the top of the gun, but can be exposed by removing a rod from the assembly. The sights would go on top of the barrel, would be powered by springs, and have a stop. The gun would look like it had no sights, but the sights would pop up when you removed a bolt is the idea. Unfortunately, to make such a gun, It would require a lot of parts, and the gun would be very big, but I'm just throwing the idea out there.......

Knexwise, do you prefer decent iron sights or a decent dot sight?

So which do you prefer... which do you think would be more popular... This should have really been a poll... but oh well. I meant in terms of looks... because knex guns are so inacurate that it barely makes a difference...

Best way to make a K'Nex sight?

I don't have bendy rods, but I want you guys to tell me what your favorites are and ones you've made. I don't mean green rods, or black Y connectors, I mean like things that required some thinking to make. No, I don't want a scope. A simple but effective, possibly even adjustable sight.

We need a "keep in sight" button

Often an instructable or a comment is enough interesting to deserve our attention during certain time. In this case, a "keep in sight" button could be very useful, to receive an email for any newness with it. Example: recently wilgubeast published an "featured author" about me. I must enter to look it each day to see and answer all new comments. This is not the only case, other topics or discussions have that need for me, too. Spanish original, in the doubt of translation: A menudo, un instructable o un comentario es lo suficientemente interesante como para merecer nuestra atención durante cierto tiempo. En este caso, un botón "mantenerlo en la mira" puede ser muy útil, para recibir un correo electrónico de cualquier novedad con él. Ejemplo: recientemente wilgubeast publicó un "autor destacado" acerca de mí. Yo tengo que entrar a mirarlo cada día para ver y responder a todos los nuevos comentarios. Este no es el único caso, otros temas o discusiones tienen también esa necesidad para mí.

DarkOwlKnex's Project Update Four

The days since I've posted my last forum topic feel like forever.  In that time, I've published four contest entries, gotten featured for a guide about K'nex, and have started a collaboration with nerfrocketeer.  Which reminds me: I have to send him that one picture, but that's besides the point.  I have two new and updated things I'd like to show you.   First order of business, I'm building a TR8 turret pistol.  I know what you're thinking: DOK, are you seriously building another turret weapon?  Well, yes, I am, but this one's is special: it has a new trigger.  I've had this trigger concept bouncing in my head for a while.  It, again, uses The Racker's Trigger on his Racker Rifle as a part of the mechanism.  The other part of the mech is a simple, sliding piece that pushes into the Racker Trigger (I'm going to call it this from now on), pushing it upwards and freeing the pin.  One of the things that I love about it are the sights.  They look really cool in my opinion, and I think they are the best sights I have ever made.  At the moment, I'm going to call it Scorpio  because its looks remind me of a scorpion.  I realize that their is already a real life gun nicknamed Scorpion, so I'm going to call mine Scorpio.  And, obviously, I haven't mounted the turret yet, but I will do that later. Second on the agenda, we have The Prophet V2.0.  It now has a slightly different turret and front end; it's enough to make it perform a lot better, although it functioned very nicely before. That's pretty much it, but I'd really love to hear what you guys think about these projects: valid constructive criticism, tips, advice, and the like are greatly appreciated.  I'd love it if you guys would leave a comment, and thanks for viewing!

How can i build a red dot sight? Answered

I would like to know how to build a high quality (not a red dot drawn on cling wrap) red dot sight for an air rifle

Question by budabob07    |  last reply


Idea for a new prop red dot sight...

   I really liked the red dot sight from CoD MW and MW2, so I thought that it may be possible to make one in real life.    If you got some thin acrylic, only ~4mm thick (the clear colourless plastic kind) and a small laser pen inside the gun, you could have the laser shine up to a small point upon the acrylic. Or, you could adapt on this and have a very small laser unit on the base of the RDS (where it would clip onto the rails) hidden of course,and have it shine on to the acrylic.    The one thing that I hate about the RDS is that you only have one bearing point. I don't see how it would aid you in any way, because one dot isn't enough to aim with. You would have to line it up with some other sight. Something which could work is an ACOG (advanced combat optical gunsight) where on each of the lenses is a bearing point which you could line up.

UFO sighting at my local air show?

I went to my local air show in Cleveland and I actually saw  a shark like figure floating around in the sky it almost looked like a flying fish but backward. It looked as tho it was actually flapping a tail around to fly. After it was way off in the distance I took some pictures of it that hardly compare to the first ones as tho it actually morphed into a more bird like object I was wondering if any one had any opinions on these bazar photos I and my brother took. I will admit im the type to believe in these objects being from other planets, I have seen Videos on Youtube stolen from nasa that resemble this "Thing"  quite closely.

A sight for international skywatchers - "Ring of Fire" Eclipse

From SpaceWeather.com:SOLAR ECLIPSE: On Monday, Jan. 26th, the Moon will pass in front of the sun producing an annular "ring of fire" eclipse. This is not a total eclipse; the Moon will cover only 93% of the sun's surface. Nevertheless, the Moon's dead-center transit across the solar disk will produce a sight of rare beauty for observers along the "path of annularity." Best views are to be had from islands in Indonesia where the ring of fire will appear to sink into the ocean at sunset. Meanwhile, in Australia, southeast Asia, southern parts of India and South Africa, observers will experience an off-center partial eclipse. Crescent-shaped sunbeams will dapple the ground while high overhead the Moon takes a curved bite out of the sun. Please visit http://spaceweather.com for eclipse maps, timetables and photos.If you're in the areas where the eclipse can be seen, how about taking and posting pictures?Animated map of eclipsePDF map of eclipse

New Gun: Prototype XM-177 Compact , should I post?

This is a gun prototype, meaning it is not quite done yet, that fires yellow rods. It is named after the CAR-15/XM-177 assault rifle from Colt, however it IS NOT full-auto, meaning you have to cock it each time to fire. You can cock it by pulling the "bolt" back as seen in pictures 3 and 4, 3 bieng in the cocking position and 4 being in the cocked position. Picture 1 is of the chamber with one shot in it, and picture 2 is of the butt of the gun. Picture 5 and 6 are of the sights, 5 is the first sight and 6 are the rear sights. So tell me, should I post it? UPDATE: 4/28/07 I added two more pics. Picture 7 is a view through the sights, picture 8 is of a bi-pod I designed specificaly for this gun.

Hidden Proximity Sensor

Hey guys, I am trying to find a method of creating a hidden proximity sensor that would work similarly to a laser i.e. if the line of sight is broken then an output can be achieved, but without actually using lasers. There are a few problems, the sensor will be in a dark space and will have some smoke blown through the line of sight (lasers would be seen). I want the sensors to be hidden, so they will have to be mounted out of sight, but as they will be used in a relatively open space, i imagine this will mean on the ceiling. This will mean that they will have to detect all the way to the floor, so the range will probably have to be at least 8 feet. Does anybody have any ideas? i'd really appreciate any input. Neal

How to use a compound bow?

I am very much a beginner in archery. I was handed down a bow from a hunter who hasnt used it in 15 years. It was brought to a shop and adjusted to my size and a weight. I am trying to figure out how to use it effectivly and accurately. I do know that when you put the arrow on, it should be odd fin sticking away from the string. However, i am not sure if i should be putting the arrow above or below the small bead on the string. I use a peep sight and am trying to figure out how to sight in my pins the correct way.  ANY AND ALL information and tips (especially answering the questions above) would be appreciated! The main questions are do i put the knock of the arrow above the bead or below it and the other question is how do sight in my sights. The top pin is 15 yards and it is high 10 inches and left by like 2 feet for some reason when i try. Thank you!

High-Tech Peashooters with laser beams!

In this peashooter competition in the UK, some entrants have modified their basic tubes with some high-tech parts. This one uses a laser sight and a gyroscope to help aim. All of this is fine with the organizers who have allowed laser sights for a decade.Even so, the winner this year was someone with a regular peashooter so it still is quite a bit about skill. Pea shooters fight it out for world championships via BoingBoing
