Putting the feelers outs... Metadyne front Iron Sights.

Did some quick CAD work to come up with an idea that I liked for a front iron sight... it is quite a bit different than the ones I made for a conventional guns a few years back. See below.. these I had made out of 6061 Aluminum .25 thick and water jet cut... I liked them a lot and sold a bunch. (PS Still have some and may re-make them)



But where I work now, a place with several laser cutters makes for an interesting options. Different materials better finish, oh and more intricate cutting. These are designed with the Metadyne Havoc in mind and will have integrated sling mounts and a hooded sight blade. I stabbed myself with one of my own iron sights while playing once... yeaaah, so hooded sight.



That all being said, not sure on cost yet but I am debating doing a run if the interest is high enough. These will have a much better finish than the previous versions... and I am debating doing them in stainless steel just because.

That looks really cool bro. Don't have a havoc to put one on but still really cool. If you made one sized for pps barrels...well I'd buy a few lol.

Double FYI for paintball rules there should be no "offer" of surrender, its either mandatory surrender at X distance when guy is behind you or no surrender and you get shot in the booty. "offer" of surrender makes for some ridiculous and dangerous john woo tactics.

The new style sight wont translate well to standard paintball barrel iron sights.

I would consider buying a Havoc to use one of those.

If I had a havoc, I'd be all over this. But I don't, so...

Not sure what type of laser you're using but our C02 laser cuts through stainless with no problem; however, it does have a difficult time with Aluminum. Just maybe something to think about. Might help with your material decision.

I can cut it out of what ever.. but stainless is going to a bastard to finish and about twice the cost for the customer.

Just saying.

We would be disappointed if it didn't.
