Some of you know that I really like the Williams Fiber Optic front sights on my Western rifles...



But... when shooting paper targets, clay pigeons, and even hunting I have found that the red fiber optic does not seem to offer the contrast on the target I would really like to see.I am sure there are a ton of places that you can purchase these Fiber Optic Rods, but I stumbled on this site when searching.

http://www.10-8performance.com/fiber-optic-rod-060/

I ordered some of the Green rods to replace the red rods that I had. I was really surprised with the contrast difference the green rods provide versus the red rods. It certainly could be different for you! But, I have made a couple of range trips using the green rod and it really helps me.

It could be you and the old man had a little more in common than you thought. He had a real problem with red. Had to use green lights instead of red ones for night hunting hogs because he couldnt see the red cast. Had to use green lasers too. I myself don't see it as clearly as one should either. At least that is what these red light camera tickets tell me.

He was a good/great man and real credit - so I feel good about doing something he was doing - I prefer the green light as well!
