    Rangefinder Interest: now with correct Perspex Lens Block...

    Hello All, thought i would post an interest thread for my new RF top. This consists of a 0.8 mm alloy RF body (as seen on my previous RF tops) and will now be available with a screen accurate Perspex lens block. I am still tweaking the final details of this part, here's a teaser of what i have been able to produce so far...

    I'd be interested in that as long as the price is right.

    That is looking sweet!

    Will the housing have some type of built-in access to be able to use something like Hyperdyne's self-contained range finder LED unit (need access for battery changes)?

    Working on that, possibly magnets for ease of removal...

    Garrett, would this be compatible with Gav's aluminum parts for the GMH?

    By any chance would this fit on a Commando8 stalk?

    Well, I have gone down the resin casting route before. The issue was making the casting thin enough to house many of the LED top mounted units people have been using. The beauty of the 0.8 mm alloy top is that maximum space can be achieved internally, where the Perspex lens block locates in the top section, this is thickened with plastic card to give the appearance it is approximately 2 mm thick. The alloy also gives more options for different stalk mounting options.

    Cool. Interested to hear the results. I'll definitely be getting Gav's ali parts, so I'm looking for a compatible topper.
