Peep sight and front sights

2 posts in this topic

Good Morning,

I have a Darton vapor bow I have been shooting for 2 years now i do very good groupings and have taken one deer. I always did have one problem when I look through the PEEP sight the 10 yard pin is obstructed by the curve on the bow right above. The pins are moved all the way up on the fron sight. I was looking through some tips and it says to close your eyes and anchor and you should be right on your peep sight. Well when I did this I end up noticing that my eye is right on the front sights but my peep sight seems to be 2 to 3 inches TOO HIGH! I think this is why my front sights are obstructed.

Does anyone know how long it takes and how much it costs to move my peep sight down. After that ill go and sight in my bow. Another thing is that when I do close my eyes relax and anchor i always end up in the same place (of course below the peep sight) but i see that my vision of the front sights is a whole lot better.

where can I take my bow to get the peep sight moved?

If you shoot a release then it should be pretty easy for you.

Any pro shop should be able to do it pretty cheap and it should only take a few minutes to move the peep and set it.

If you want to do a quick test, try shooting without your peep. Put a piece of tape on your string and use that as your anchor point so that your eye lines up below the peep. You don't need a peep to shoot but you could test it out and see if your pins move down for you.

If that works then go get your peep reset.

    • Most certainly. Chili ain't chili with out beans!

    • Kidneys and black X2,, This isn't a down south chili cook off, we need substance in our chili up here lol. 
    •   Still looks like the White House is trying to squash the reports.     
    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    •   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
