Nice project and great results!!!  At 100 yards! Crikey!  ::)

I'd be happy with these old eyes to do that at 50 yards!

I agree!  I just meant that I'd STEAL that as my excuse for these failing eyes and iron sights!  I ended up buying a lyman peep for my GPR and can't see it helped that much and now, now my eyes havegotten even worse so I'm almost hesitant to shoot it now...alas, with all this rain, I won't have to get to the range to try... :):)
