Got a Ghost ring for Halloween
« on: November 01, 2018, 05:19:05 PM »
 [ Invalid Attachment ]  [ Invalid Attachment ]    Got to talk with a gun maker and he made this Ghost ring up for me , I finally got to try it the day before Halloween . Still a work in progress , high shot was the first not knowing how it would work. after that most settled in 25 from the bench with the low hole from 50.
A big thanks to Lowell Haarer of Virginia.

That's pretty trad looking right there, bud!

I invested in the rather pricey Lyman peep, but I'd found that I was getting decent groups at 25 but either due to my eyes or the load, it all went to crap at 50... Now at 50, I'm getting to keep them in Minute of Deer!


That reminds me, I'm going to go remove the tiny hole insert and put in the bigger one for hunting! :)

Is there anything keeping the sight from moving laterally? Or is it just the screw pressure? Looks like a simple design the would work well and simple to make. Thanks for sharing.
