    My wife bought this at a yard sell today for 3 bucks.It's a cobra and looks brand new but i know it's not.Anyone have an idea when it was made.I've seen a lot of sights but guess i missed this one.Going to send it to my 16 year old son.

    looking at the way the fiber pins connect and the micro adjustment screw. It looks like an older Toxonics to me.

    It says cobra on it.Well made sight for an older one.The micro drive is what has me stumped about the age of it.never saw it before.I thought i seen most all of cobra's sights in the past several years.just curious.

    yeah the frame looks alot like a cobra. I just noticed the way the fibers attach to the pin. Its the way Toxonics older sights. Like my old Sniper works.
    If it says cobra. its a cobra!!:lol: :lol:

    You'll probably find that itis only three of four years old. Saw alot of those sites going thru Walmart not to long ago. Inexpensive but useable.

    Thanks.I don't buy any archery from wal-mart so i guess thats why i never saw it before.Not a bad sight though and my 16 yo son likes anything i send him that has to do with archery.

    The pins are adjusted by an allen wrench....the micro drive move's the whole pin houseing/pins up/down.
