Obviously you get what you pay for. This sight is very inexpensive for the construction
and features. The only down side is the vibration & rattling which comes down to build know-how on the part of the manufacturer.
1) Mount has countersinks for screws which are 90 deg. (metric), even though the
mounting screws are #10-24 NC, which have 82 deg head... result, **** doesn't
sit in countersink properly... had to re-cut with imperial countersink... and change
the 1/2" long screws (short) to 3/4" long screws.
2) **** used to tighten arm bar has really sloppy threads. Poor fit = low thread
engagement = low retention... easily comes loose... unless you tighten it so hard,
the plastic tip deforms... used orange pipe tape.
3) Vertical center slider has plastic gib (wedge) on one side and a very small gap on the
other (rear) side. I found this to be a big source of rattle. I slid a piece of paper in there and voila, noise reduced. They should have made the gap larger or used another
wedge. In any case, a piece of duct tape carefully slid in between (stuck to the slider side), eliminated the noise.
4) Thumb **** knurls (for vertical lock and sight pin mount) are so smooth, its hard to
get a good grip to lock or unlock... which means they are coming loose if you don't reef
5) Fivics sight pin damper (from CAO) also helped... this was the first thing I tried... the sharp rattle is reduced, but still audible.
Overall... I don't regret buying this unit... its very solid now... and I can only blame my
lack of shooting skills for poor results :)
Was recommended this sight over the Avalon Tec One (regular) sight as it has less screwed in parts that can shake themselves loose. So far, so good! Haven't had a need to loc-tite anything.
Overall, the sight offers good value as it comes with macro and micro adjustments and includes a travel bag to keep everything together. The sight arm has little divets that give a satisfying small click. Same for the micro adjustments. The macro adjustment is smooth as well. The reticule block is easily unscrewed for better storage. Overall, good sight for the price point!
All the precision tuning you need for a very good price.
The only complain I have is one of the retention ring got lose and is lost after the 2nd or 3rd session of shooting. Nothing a little loctite couldn't fix but apply loctite before setting it up and shooting.
Excellent service, good quality parts for the right price, quick service. What more to ask for?
Honestly the sight is great for the price. Needs to be taken apart, lubed up, and every screw needs to be hit with some locktite. I shoot 42 lbs and I ended up having to get a new sight 3 weeks after, but it’s basically a sureloc if it was cheap
All special orders are treated with priority. Outside of larger items such as bows, many special order items are on a consistent stocking basis. General turn around due to pandemic backorders is at least 8 weeks depending on manufacturer lead times.
Some bows such as custom target bows and top shelf traditional recurve bows are on a made to order basis directly from the manufacturer.
Some left handed products such as high end target equipment can also experience unforseen delays due to manufacturer batch production.
We make every effort to meet the deadlines set above. Sometimes due to issues out of our control we are unable to accomplish this. We will make every effort to remedy the situation if that is the case.
