I drew it up in Sketchup for the sake of ease. I don't think that file can be used for much. I have autocad but it's been a while since I've used it. If you want the Sketchup file I can get that to you, but I'd have to make some updates to it from the changes I made along the way (trial and error ya know).

It is surprisingly difficult to get good photos of machined aluminum. It's either too little or too much light.

I made mine to exactly match the width of my receiver which using a dial caliper comes out to 0.922". The Burris sights are exactly 1.000" wide. I also made the mount 0.150" to clear the 0.140" height of the goofy "sight tab".

For a machinist this would be a relatively easy project. It's just simple cuts. The only "complicated" cuts are positioning the 3/8" ball endmill so that its outside cutting edge lines up exactly with the outside edge (width) of the receiver. I doubt that all these mass produced and stamped sheet metal receivers are exactly the same width.

Oh... and just a bit of useful info. The Burris Fastfire II comes with 6-40 screws, not 6-48 like the Fastfire III. Same goes for the Primary Arms red dot that copies the Fastfire II... also 6-40. The manual for both models states 6-48 but that's not accurate.

Trent, yours looks more sturdy. Must be nice to have a mill. The closest tap I had was 6-32 so I used that. My tools consisted of drill, dremel, belt sander, and a file.

Snagged some spent automatch cases today while at the range and none have any distortion or bulge across from the pin strike. I can see a dip in the abrasion going around the case that indicates the ramp but the case is true.

You my friend are very good with hand tools then! Yours turned out way better than what mine would look like with just those tools. Impressive.

So yours locks on the rear with the factory "tab"?

Yours must be a little less "relieved" at the feed ramp then.

WOW! Your workmanship is first-class, and it just looks miles better than the original Picatinny! Everything looks like it belongs!
The FastFire looks like it has truly found a home! Your skill is amazing!
