T8.1 Fiber Optics

Sorry, no finished photos as of yet, but I did just order the needed dovetail and double angle cutters to machine these. I'm hoping to have a prototype up and running of the sights by next weekend.

So with the front sight, does it have to be installed and then the fiber optic rod is installed in the sight?

At the moment yes, but like the other fiber optics I've done, the cables will be removable to access the set screw. I may also include a small plastic punch to install and remove the fiber optics as necessary.

Is it possible to put the set screw on one side?

How much? When can I get it?

As for the fiber optic why not just thread one end of the fiber and the front part of the bracket so you could screw it in and out of place. Might mean a little more work initially but it would make getting at that set screw so much easier.

How many times do you guys honestly plan on removing the sights? Once they're on I see no reason to be taking them back off again.

In case one has to readjust for windage, for example.

What's the next step after this "O'Lane," a rear sight adjustable for elevation too?

I'm leaning toward pistol rogue on this one, how often do people remove or adjust their front sights? Even with first strike rounds, we're not talking about a 9mm or other handgun, the accuracy is just not there to be worrying so much about adjusting your sights.

If the set screw were to be located off center, there's only about .065" thickness of aluminum meaning you could only get about two full threads for a 4-40 set screw. Locating it in the center give you much more aluminum to thread into. So as well as looks, it's also a matter of function for the set screw to be located in the center.

Price is up in the air at the moment, but I'd put it between $75 and $100 a set, that price would include anodizing. I wont be able to figure in an actual price until I can make a prototype to recognize all the operations and the time it takes to run those operations, not to mention, I hate making tiny parts on a large milling machine so there will probably be some sorta TFS (This ******* Sucks) price increase, haha.

Threading fiber optic while doable, may be alittle tricky with such a small cable and it would also mean I'd have to machine a relief cut in the fiber optic, drill and tap the optic housing and drill it for clearance (3/32"). And if the fiber optic were fully enclosed as shown, how are you going to fully thread it in and unthread it?

Now my question is, should I keep on studying for this engineering exam or should I keep working in Solidworks on stuff... decisions decisions...
