Is there a Less Expensive Alternative to Armson Sights?

Does anybody know of a less expensive alternative to the Armson occluded eye sights? Other than the DYE Ion ones that is.

Thanks.


Jeffrey

30mm red dot sights work best in my experience and theyre cheap.

ADCO Swifty is probably the least expensive and is a decent looking one





I have a local source if you need one

You can use the Daisy Point Sight as occluded. It is good to test the technique out. About $10, but will only take a few hits (if that).

You can use ANY red dot sight as an occluded eye guide. OEGs are inferior to red dot sights in every way except for durability; an Armson is effectively paintball-proof from any angle.

The 32* Magnum red dot is a clone of the DYE iZon but is actually a far superior sight. The only catch is that the mounting rail is very finicky. It simply refuses to mount to anything that isn't narrow or tall enough, so it fits great on my Superbolt but I can't mount it on my Phantom to save my life.

Thanks guys.

I'll send you a PM Chaos if I decide to go with the Swifty, thanks again.

I've used the Armson ones and like them, sold em off in a pinch though.

So as long as the field of vision is blocked, by a vert feed lets say, and you keep both eyes open it should work as an "occluded" sight...in theory?

Ive ordered quite a few items off of this site. Free shipping from China and the pricing is excellent.

yea OEGs and red dots both work behind a vertical feedneck with both eyes open. I used to have my illusion set up with a red dot like that until I realized the gun was already aiming exactly where i wanted to shoot
