    See if I can upload the picture, marginal on the K-31 but would work, would have to add another screw in each side to work with the 1911.

    I’ve gone back and forth about getting the diopter sights but I probably never will. When it comes to milsurp rifles I just prefer to shoot them with irons (sniper variants withstanding)...

    Daniel Wyss himself declared to Frank VanBinnendijk (Guisan) 5 years ago that our Type P 1,000 yard Diopters were currently the best on the market. It took me 8 years to get the Swissicon SSV to acknowledge it's acceptance for sanctioned shoots. Since 2000, we've never had a return of complaint from anyone either here or in Switzerland.

    Hi RC20, I got that for 250€. That is really low, but the guy selling it is an older shooter from around here who has some problems with his right eye, so now he is selling all his milsurps and “paraphernalia“ like this.
    Here it runs normally at around 400 €, so I’m very happy with my purchase.
    Hope to be able to go and try it in the next few days.
    The most wonderful part is the installation. A few seconds, just a few seconds...

    Here the first try.
    Today. A tad later than I had wished for, but still...

    At 100 meters I shot some scrounged brass with Lovex powder. A new mix to me.
    Once adjusted and over with the experimental rounds, I went to 200 meters with my usual load of N140 and S&B FMJBT bullets, 147 grs.
    First shot a tad low. 10 clicks up and second shot in the bullseye, the one slightly right.
    For being this the first time I ever shot with similar sights, I’m really satisfied!

    The note POA on the 100 meters target is BS. I had to write it on my K98kicon target and, chatting, wrote it on the wrong one
