hi all, i have the older black and red sonix. i have the rocking trigger and a virtue board, i would like to know how i can mod my gun to have the eyes installed. ive tried the otters customs site. the eyes pattern he has doesnt work with my gun, the part were u drill is were my detent is. any ideas?

I've got this same issue for that gun. I've never installed eyes before but I was thinking of offsetting it, so that one is above the detent, and the other is below it but they are still centered in the breach. I'll try drawing something up.

Well, it's not proportional but you get the idea.

No, that's just the idea I'm tossing around for the future. This gun has alot more modifications that are getting done before the eyes. Once I get working on it it won't even look like a sonix anymore. If you wanna try it, let me know and I'll see about helping you design some eye covers. I really don't even know how feasible it is because I've never used eyes before.

thats the thing, i dont wanna go just drilling holes in my gun. im not exactly the kind of person to modify something and hope and pray it works. i need something thats right.

That's why the stock detent is the problem. Right below that is where the body angles up and it's a pretty small space, about 1/4". But, could probably use bounce back eyes on the other side of the body. I don't know if that works, I'm still learning about eyes. I don't see why it wouldn't.

their has to be a template out there that works with my sonix and doesnt affect the detent.
