    Greetings and Saluations from the Dweller In the Citystate of the

    THe great thing about the Net is that it allows me to continually expand my knowledge base! I KNEW that there had to be someone out
    there with the info we needed.
    Alas, however, while it sounds like a great little thing, I have a strong feeling that it is NOT a commercially produced item... I kind
    of got the impression from the original post that the question was if
    there was a commercialy available sight...
    Thanks for the info though!

    Hi guys,

    <snip>
    Secondly, for Hamer...sorry, as far as I know, there IS no such
    thing as a periscope sight for the sport.

    Sorry Dave, but I have a mirror sight for clout. Its about 2 inches
    high, and 1.5 inches square. Two mirrors are set up to form a >mini-periscope. You can adjust the angle of the mirrors vertically and >horizontally to get range and windage sorted out.

    I have it second hand - it was built by another Archer way in the past.
    I have not shot clout with it yet, as there are difficulties with
    locking it tightly to the bow sight (all my threads are different types
    to it) So I cant say how well it works. It gives a much better picture
    than a prism sight, in all kinds of sky colour / light conditions. >(everyone else here shoots ground markers or prism sights)

    As I said in an earlier post, ground markers are , Just recently a
    compound archers shot a Master Bowman rating (185m) by lining up the
    point where the limb enters the riser, with a ground marker.

    It looks a bit fiddly to make, but possible. If anyone is interested, I >will have a go at describing it - maybe even a picture..

    Kevin,

    I suppose it depends which rules you are shooting to.

    GNAS rule (102 a, iv, 1) states:

    "A bowsight.......<snipped bits about windage etc>.... it shall *not* incorporate a prism or lens or other magnifying device, levelling or electric device nor shall it provide for more than one sight point"
    I dont dispute your rules - but do you think a mirror sight would still
    be allowed?

    It is not a prism, or lens or magnifying device, nor is it electronic or leveling. (just a couple of mirrors)

    The intent of the rule probably precludes it though.
