Trijicon accupin site 2013 model. This was by far a hard nut to crack. The price was $400 shipped to my house from optics planet. (Btw great to talk to them on the phone. Thier sales rep that helped me was out of this world helpful and nice. Bless her and her family!)
Got the site and the frustration started. I mounted and followed the instructions as said in the book and youtube videos I watched. (Best video was the guy who created the site) Sited in my 20 yards and was pleased. It was a bit annoying with all the tightening and changing from all the screws but I had no stripped screws or anything come loose. Backed out to 60 and was confused about how to adjust the site since I was bottoming out at 60yards and couldn't get the site to go lower with out getting fletching contact. More frustration!!!! I couldn't find anything to help me figure out why I couldn't get my site to hit further then 60. I did not want to spend $400 and be limited at all. Continued with my tinkering and adjusting.

Ah ha!!!! My peep was only at 5.5 inches!!!! Moved it to 6.5 and what a world of change!!! Now the site would top out at 20 perfectly and go all the way out to 100!!!! Exactly what I was looking for and expecting from this site. The book said I should have my gears set to 5. It turned out after fine tuning it and getting it dialed in that I was more in the range of 6.5 - 7 gear ratio. I went to the range today after taking the site to my local shop in Petaluma called west coast archery where I got my peep changed last night. Hans the owner is more then helpful and willing to help me learn and understand what I am doing. Major +10 for his shop!!! So like I said. Went to the range today. In 5 shots I was zeroed in and ready to take the walking course. I started on the 20. Went to the 60 and hit the 80 as well.

After about 150 shots I started getting worn out and of course hit the 90yard target. I couldn't pass this up. The site is not engraved to 90 but the screw head on the dial is the spot that would be equal to where the 90 would be if it were their.

Got ready and let two arrows fly. Call it luck. Call it what ever you want but my results were perfectly what I wanted.

I am more then please with this site after changing my peep. I have no problem that I spent $400 on it and I think it is worth every penny. After the day I had little to no dial slop and was extremely happy. If anyone has any questions or wants to know me feel free to pm me or ask in the thread. If you are on the fence. Just got for it. The 2013 model for me seems to be a major improvement for trijicon from past models. I would recommend this site to everyone.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope it was helpful to some of you!

Well, it wasn't REALLY a bullseye, it was a few inches high of center. :D
