This 30 dollar graduated and fully adjustable aperture sight has proved out so well for quickly and accurately getting on target, and hitting it. The scout scope has now become a backup for the aperture sight.

You're not bothered by the aperture being that far from your eye?

I removed the disc and larger opening is just right for the sighting radius. Am amazed how fast target acquisition is with both eyes open, just concentrate on target, sights come up and on dead center.

Got my Mendoza sight here: http://www.pyramydair.com, but checked and they only listed the Mendoza micrometer sight now for $19.95.

But here is same Mendoza aperture sight for $30.00 also: http://www.airgunwarehouseinc.com/py-a-2003.html

Cool! I, too, would have thought that being that far away wouldn't be very helpful. Glad it's working out! I may need to give them a try. :)

That looks awfully nice for $30. How is it attached, I can't tell from the picture?

On the 12mm dovetail where the original Mosin Nagant sight was mounted

It is also great for mounting a scout scope with a dovetail to Weaver mount.
