Spent most of Thursday pm and all day Saturday drawing on this next batch of sights! I will be making this next batch myself!! That is a life long dream realized! By the Grace of God a small business in which I design, program, manufacture, finish and Rebecca distributes our own product!!

The machine i will be using is made right here in Chandler Arizona! What that means is that these sights will be made by a home grown, corn fed redneck on a machine made in a America, Arizona to be exact!! All of the parts except the 8X32X1/4 cone point set screws are made in America (the biggest screw in the sight)!! I'm a big fan of McMaster Carr for that very reason!!! They distribute a lot of American made procucts!! They are real allen wrenches made by Allen!

All the parts go in a weapon made here in Ohio! That's a good thing!! American manufacturing is making a comeback despite the worse efforts of the maniac in the white house!!

At this point they are nearly (obviously) done! I will have set of jaws holding the part itself, exposing the ends. They will be mounted vertically in the the mill will approach with saw blade spinning horizontally, nearly part off (leaving a little tab) top then bottom! A little hand work and off to the platers!!

:worthless:

My plan is to bring back the the Gen Two or "Inverted "T" as Broomhead named them years back!! One of my customers in Texas shoots competitively, well actually he and his daughter do! He is trying them!! This guy gets a big kick out of competing against 3K$ race guns!! I think there is a market for them but it didn't show up because I was pitching a fit about PayPal and there was almost zero marketing!!

Thanks for your time and attention! Wish I had more time to hang out with you guys, but things around my house are a little wound up most of the time!! That is the way it is when you have adult children and grandbabies at home!!

I also plan to begin manufacturing my weaver rail conversion for the JHC and JHP! The difference between Picatinny and Weaver lies in the fact that the Picatinny has precisely controlled depth and width and spacing of the recoil grooves!!! That will open up a whole world of options for guys like me that like to hang trash on the end of their weapons!!!

Can't wait to finally get one of your sights for my 380! Hopefully before my next trip to afghanistan if not I'll be ready to try it out when I return!

I hope Mr. Mahan is planning a comeback tour...

I'm sure having a "real Job" and having a side business keeps him very busy!!

Especially when he is actually designing & manufacturing something from scratch to finished product!!
And buying and packaging all the screws & set screws & allen wrenches to go along with.
Then taking the orders, and the labeling & boxing & shipping...

I would imagine a fellow probably does need to take a break from all that for a while!!! :yes2:

Total change in process flow. 3 to 6 months should have some sights available again if all goes to plan.

And, WELCOME Digity!!!
:welcome: :welcome: :welcome:

Yeah I am thoroughly confused. Here he says new sights but then in Sep 2015 he posts in classifieds no he is done, viewtopic.php?f=29&t=17929

Website says new Gen II ready, but his contact me page wont display the verification text to send a message, and I tried sending an email to highpointsights@cox.net and it bounced back. I also have not heard any reply from my initial inquiry back through his website back in December.

Sounds to me like no new sights....

Give him a break guys, he makes these as a favor to HiPoint shooters, not to get an income. He is not a bonafide regular here because he is super busy it appears. Full time job, family, reloading, shooting, and possibly eating, pooping, and drinking water on occasion. I'll guess he even has to sleep once a month or so. :mrgreen:
