    Recently purchased HiViz Comp Sight for my son's gun.The sight comes with eight light pipes ranging for 3/32 - 1\8.I had the larger one on first he missed all clays thrown.I knew something was not right so I changed to the smallest pipes and he broke all clays thrown back to back. Please help me to understand how changing pipe made that big of a difference?

    Regard

    It made no difference whatsoever - except in his head. Possibly the larger bead was drawing his eye to the barrel, and when you put on the smaller bead, he starting focusing on the target like he is supposed to.

    Patric, Hi-Viz makes 4 different size light pipes. Use the smallest you can. Call them to get smaller ones if you like. Break-em all. Jeff
