See All Tritium Night Sights

Recommended Posts

Well I bought one of their night rail sights and a Carolina Shooters  4" rail.

Figured I would try it before I did a elevated front sight.

I should get the rail today. The sight is smaller than i expected and weighs nothing.

I will post results as soon as I get a chance to mount and try it.

I need to pickup some 3" slugs to get a basic zero going.

 

I would post a pic, but can't seem to upload an image.

Installation of the sight went not so well.

I got the old sight off with a couple taps which was nice.

I installed the dovetail for the rail and mounted the rail.

I noticed that the rail seemed to be angled pretty far to the right just by looking down the top of the gun with no sight mounted.

I am guessing the great Saiga quality control of the dovetail is the cause.

This will not allow me to adjust the sight far enough right to be on a 3 FT square target at 10 YD with slugs. Not good!

 

I have sent a question to support to see if there is any yaw adjustment on the rail. There is plenty of vertical adjustment on the rail.

If not the old irons go back on.

 

The sight however itself is a really nice piece.

Its light,looks rugged, mounts easily, adjusts easily, and works awesome on an AR so I will be keeping it.

If I can get it on the S20 I will be very happy.

It is fast to acquire when shouldering and the Tritium is a plus.

 

Update:

 

The rail worked much better when I went back to the bench and ignored the center mark of the old site and finished driving the dovetail of the new rail into the center of the gun.

 

I need to get more slugs but I an very optimistic this will be exactly what I was hoping it would be.
