    jonty got a reaction from batty in Screw For Anschutz Cantable Rear Sight 7002   
    These are finely engineered parts, and should NEVER be tightened up like you would a wheel nut on an E.R.F.
     
    I must have said it a million times on here, be gentle with bolts whether it be on sights, buttplates or an outside toilet door.
     
    The excellently spotted item by Batty does include a new clamp and its tiny springs as well as the required bolt.

    They are M6 x0.75 pitch you can buy them from some machine suppliers - i used to buy long M6 stainless then put a 0.75 tap down it to cut my own at '10% price charged by gunshops. What most shooting suppliers charge for a simple if not that common bolt is a scandal!
     
    They can be bought from here - http://www.nssocketscrews.com/html/contact or here: http://www.stainlessautomotivefastenings.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=123_25&products_id=5002
     
    the washers are M6 'Belleville', again easy & cheap to buy from a basic machine stockists -

    jonty reacted to nicklock in Spotting Scope   
    I use one of those Greenkat/Opticron angled eyepiece scopes, with a 22x eyepiece in it. It's almost 20 years old now, and as I haven't abused it it's still clear at 100 yards to the point where I can call "just out" in most light conditions...
     
    They're still comparably cheap, so for £600 I would expect you to be able to get something like this.

    The thinnest iris has a 1.2mm ring thickness and the thinnest high end glass element is 1.0mm (off the top of my head)
     
    There was a guy on ebay making custom sizes to order, not sure if he is still on there.
     
    I find 1.0mm leaves the ring very pale, amd I struggle with the contrast between the ring and the target. Everyone has different perception of course.

    Honestly mate, if you're planning on doing some proper training you're better picking an ammo your rifle likes and sticking with it rather than mixing and matching with different batches and brands.

    Its a "Jung" butt plate which Walther get a local engineer to make, they also made one for my wife, the top mount and wing is missing on that one pictured, if any wants it I can furnish pictures and dimensions of the bits that are missing, or I have a phone number for "Ingeniurburo Jung"
     
    And yes they are ideal for shorties!

    jonty reacted to RobinC in Centra Duplex   
    Chris
    I have several of them, I had gone over entirely to using them on all our rifles and all our sights, both my wife and I. I really like them, BUT, they are very (I mean VERY) sensitive to light to set up correctly, its not just a matter of putting it on and adjusting to centre, the issue is about getting the correct size element, I also have a variable one which I used last. The principle is about judging the gap around the outside of the element and in a range with constant light such as an indoor range (or a good continental ISSF range) they are great, in any range with varying light (any UK out door range) they can need a change of element, and iris opening, or in some cases the light change is such that you can not get a gap at all and end up taking the Duplex off.
     
    Shooting to NSRA rules open shoots, you can't touch the rifle until the start of the detail so have no time to set the Duplex up to the light, if its right the light changes and you are stuffed, I even found that the variable element did not have enough varaiance to cope with some changes. Its not just range light, its inside light, outside light, and the contrast between them produces different issues, some you can adjust with rear iris size, some not.
     
    My conclusion was, great, as long as you always shoot on the same range in the same light conditions, or you shoot to ISSF timings and have time to set up at each shoot and then the light stays the same! Fabulous when shooting in constant light conditions, a nightmare when not!
     
    My wife first stopped using hers due to having problems in some open shoots with light changes and found it a complication she did not want, I persevered for a year but now I have followed suit and stopped using them, I really like them, and if we only shot on nice constant light ranges I'd still use them.
     
    I have a couple I'd sell, (both new unused) but you need to know the element size that suits you and that is dependent on several factors, your vision, iris opening, eye relief, light, etc, its difficult to advise as what suits me does not suit you.
     
    PS. You will need a sight with a MEC lenshood to fit one.

    5.6 , 5.7! be careful Tim G you dont slip and fall into the High End, although at that size, you would just fall through. WOW I didnt know they made them that big.
     
    Do you use a tube? If you dont, but decided to use one, I shudder to think what hole size you would require.

    jonty got a reaction from RobertBeard in Barry Nesom Turn-Over Foresight   
    If I remember correctly, the bubble attaches to the sight body NOT the tube that slides through the centre. I have never had any movement of the bubble when moving from 50 to 100 and back to 50yds.
     
    After shooting at 50 yds and rotating the tube 180 degree to shoot at 100 yds I am always perfectly zeroed in the bull.
     
    When turning the sight, you need to undo the fastening ring a number of turns to enable the tube part to slide rearwards so that it clears the locating lug, then simply re tighten the ring when it re engages the lug and then continue shooting bulls!

    jonty got a reaction from leviticus49 in Iris Sight For An Anschutz 1413   
    Do I detect that your issue is with not being able to see the sight diagram (The black bull area) very well, and the suggestion to you was that something to magnify the diagram may help?
     
    If I am correct, you may be wanting what is now called a sight correction lens, or as we used to say a magnifier' on the rear sight. These are products that you can 'zoom' in and out to improve your sight picture (If you know what I mean)
     
    As Tim says, the choices of what you can get in a rear sight screw in eyepiece are endless, and you need to know exactly what product you are wanting, or you will end up with something you did'nt want.

    You can fit an Anschutz 54 into a Bleiker inlet stock with a round-to-square adaptor. The adaptor may need a little filing, and the inlet in the stock will need to be widened for an Anschutz 1800-1900 trigger.
