I picked up the rifle the other day to clean it, which is why I came here to ask about this, and the sights were useless. In a fairly short time it was covered. For whatever reason, it has to be wiped off. Whatever it is, it's sticky. Doing it with a finger just smears it. In a way, it makes it worse. That's why I got a little cover to put over it. It may take a second to pull that cover off but at least I can use the thing to aim with. Shooting blind can work fine with a shotgun but not so much with a rifle. I was hoping for something a little simpler since sometimes I have to fiddle with the cover I put on the sights.I can see it now. Marauders break into the home, the guy grabs his AR from behind the door, raises the rifle to his shoulder, OH NO, there's a dust bunny on my peep sight and I can't see, what ever shall I do? BANG! You're dead. Or, you could just blow the dust bunny off the sight and get an advantage on your adversary. This has got to be one of the stupidest conversations I've seen.
So, if having a set of sights you can use and want to depend on is a stupid thing to discuss, maybe this is the wrong forum to ask on?? I might add, most of this thread isn't even about my question but about something I can't change. I'm not sure why people want me to put my pistol in or on the nightstand when I don't have a nightstand. Nice idea, accepted it as a good idea but not really what I was looking for.
