I started using one this year on my hunting setup and I have to say that it is very impressive indeed. Well made, bright and easy to use. I look forward to putting it through the rigors of a hunting season.

I nearly got one, but i heard about them makeing quite a bit of noise, but dont know if that's true or not. Anyhow, they were darn bright though. Brightest sights ive seen.

I've always like those sights. They are so incredibly bright. But have always been concerned about the plastic housing surrounding the fiber coil, however Let us know how that holds up during hunting.

Have had my Sidewinder since last April and have been on a few 3D shoots and a lot of practicing in the back yard so far a great bright sight alsoi went as far as adding the blue saphire pin for my 50 yarder,,one thing to remember if your going to use loctite or any other equivalant sealant on your screws is not to get it on the clear plastic (acrylic)cover it will deteriate (crack) acrylic.
