    I've been looking real hard at the Axcel AX3000 for the Prestige and was wondering just what the "Gib" stands for in, "Automatic Gib Tension System". I realize that it's an auto adjust but does anyone know what the GIB stands for?? :noidea:

  2. Gibs are in the ways or "grooves" of a lathe or mill that keep the table secure. These gibs are also present in many sights and could be called dovetail connections that allow adjustment to your sight.

    Maybe the gibs in this sight has a nylon insert to keep positive tension to prevent vibration related noise?
