Step 1: Preparing the Metal Plate
Take a very thin sheet of metal(it should be so thin that it can be cut by a scissor, that much thin). then sandwich the metal sheet in between two camouflage stickers.
You can also use an ice cream stick or any thing of the same type to straighten the stickers to remove wrinkles.
Step 2: MAKING the Parts of the Reflex-dot.
Step 3: BENDING and ATTACHING the Reflex-dot.(THE BODY OF THE REFLEX-DOT)
Bend the body of the reflex-dot along the dotted line using a bench vise(over here i am using an improvised bench vise) use a hammer to make the bend more solid.
Step 4: BENDING and ATTACHING the Reflex-dot.(THE LENSE HOLDER)
BEND THE reflex dot along the dotted line.Hammer up to make the bend more solid.I have highlighted the lines you need bend along.
Step 5: BENDING and ATTACHING the Reflex-dot.(The Rail Attacher and the LED Holder)
you'll have to watch the video for making the rail attacher (it kinda complex so can't explain in words).for making the LED holder bend along the dotted line and then make a hole for the LED by piercing the dot on the holder with a nail.move the nail a little to make the hole big enough for LED to fit in.
Step 6: Putting It Together and Putting the Electronics On.
FIRST, peel off the stickers.Then bend the notches using pliers.Attach the LED holder at the end of the body of the reflex-dot using super glue.then attach the lens holder at the other end using super glue.then attach the rail attacher at the base and then the body is complete.now put on the electronics.attach the battery at the base and switch on the side.the battery consists of two cells(the one used in tv remotes) which I combined in series and then covered them by camouflage.
Step 7: Adding the Lense.
ADD THE LENSE VERY CAREFULLY it should be as straight as possible.turn the switch on and its done.
