Finally - The Perfect Open Gun Optic

Recommended Posts

As far as I'm concerned, the bigger the lens, the better. Everybody gets a bad grip every now and then, and not being able to find the dot takes time. :surprise:

I don't know if you are keeping a list, but if so, put me on it too. Will definitely buy one.

I know some folks at Trijicon (just up the road from me) if you need me to make calls about optics :-)

If these posts are helpful to gauge interest or first orders - please add me to the list as well - this looks cool!

Finally getting the traction I need on optics. Hoping to have the 1st articles of the custom glass on order next week. Then I'll get machining on the Version 2.0 metal parts.

I don't have a list other than this thread and PM's, but I'll make sure to get a hold of everyone when I'm ready to go. I want to have some time with the V2.0 and make sure things are holding together before I start cranking them out for you guys. I'm excited to get this out there, as it is so awesome to shoot - I've really been enjoying everything about it.

Well, since it doesn't appear to have a name yet, may I suggest the obvious? The POGO. Taken from this threads title, Perfect Open Gun Optic. :goof:

Man, with all these "I'll take it" comments without even asking for a price, you should make a mint! :cheers:

The reality is that there's a price point for everything. The sight is cool, innovative and for $400 each you couldn't make them fast enough, but at $1,500 you'd be hard pressed to sell a handful, somewhere in there lies the price point. To say "I'll take it" without a price tag seems a little silly.

I guess it all depends on how gear-crazy you are and what you can, &/or are willing to, spend on your open gun! I'll admit it, if it's functional, cool and super-high quality... I'll give it a try :D

That said I think most of us are assuming it'll be on the pricey side but not 3x what top of the line optics cost now.....

...so, good point.

I'll bet if you took the hours of labor the OP has into the first few, multiplied it by the industry standard for machinists' pay, you'd have a cost well over that.

True, but you don't add R&D costs into a product on a per item basis. I'm not buying one (not right away, anyway), but getting a sense of this guy's personality in the thread, I don't see him trying to make his fortune off the early adopters.

I would happily take one for a reasonable price. I am doing a new open gun soon.

Your comment about price is well founded ..... Back some years ago I had a small fishing tackle company and used to do something called 'Long Range Tuna fishing". These trips cost the equilivant of a brand new Brazos Open gun every year and some guys would do 2-3 of theses trips in one year. Needless to say these guys had money and were wiling to spend it since we were chasing the largest yellowfin tuna in the world. Well I designed a piece of tackle that worked in place of an existing solution that never failed (a really big deal in thisvtype of fishing were your tacklevis put to the extremes) and marketed a kit so you could do it yourself. Even though it was consided a "game changer" at the time there was a very specific price point, above which only very few would ever sell ....

I'd expect the same is true for this unless the thing guarantees that you would always hit Alphas for the rest of your life ... :)

And I hope he does make a fortune on it, he's certainly put in the effort required and deserves to be rewarded ...

Ok, here's a rather dumb question. Since I didn't see the original design and the only picture in this thread is from behind, is it adjustable for windage and elevation? If so, how?

I suspect in a similar method to a cmore. Set screws move the diode.

Actually, in a C-More the lens position is adjusted. The diode is static.

Good to know. Actually that is pretty obvious if you look at the cmore - doh!
