    Iron sights for service rifles.

    Found 2 new iron sights for most common service rifles. The first is the MOJO peep sight with .8MOA(1/8?) micro adjustments for elevation. It will replace my notch rear sight on my AK. They also offer front peep sights for what they call snap sighting system.

    There are also front peep sights with cross-hairs from KNS precision. This pair would allow a snap sight for close range and add cross-hairs for distance. Please tell me what you think of this slighting system. I plan on using this instead of electronic hollow sights.

    I like the mojo on my Mauser. I didn't like it on my AK. The adjustment had to be real high and it did not hold when I fired it. The guy at Mojo suggested loctite, but at that point I started thinking I didn't want to add anything that made my AK less reliable (even if it wasn't strictly function related) so I took it off.

    JT was that the elevation set screw or the micro adjustment knob bouncing up? This shaking loose then? Wow sounds like this might be a defect or a design flaw.

    The elevation screw was slipping. If I remember correctly, when you use the alan wrench to adjust the elevation screw, you are supposed to have to hold the micro adjustment dial (or else it would turn the dial when you turn the alan wrench). On the one I had for my AK, the elevation screw turned without having to hold the micro adjustment dial. I guess I should have tried loctite, but at that point I had already spent quite a bit if time, and a range trip messing with it and was starting to doubt the durability. I think it is solid on a Mauser, but I didn’t like how far the screw had to be extended on the AK.

    Plumber tape could be used too, but this is more then a little disconcerting with the quality supposed to go into the product. The screw should have Been sufficiently tight with the treads. Looks like they gave you a defective one then wouldn't replace it.
