    Looking at buying a HHA ds-fx3519 in a 3 pin version with .10 pins, If anyone has one they are looking at parting with shoot me a PM. Ive been looking around but can't find them since they have been discontinued Or if you just had the head of the sight that would work and I could buy the base separately. Thanks.

    Make sure if you find it that its the 2" housing...the knock on them always was it was a little tight in the scope with the three pin compared to other housings. One reason I always stayed clear of them and went with a single pins with my HHA s

    You are also not limited to just a HHA scope/housing on that sight, several other will be able to fit an hha also.

    CHE makes a super mutipin housing as does MGB.

    Thanks for the heads up. What do you mean by I'm not limited to HHA scope/housing? What else would fit?

    I should have worded that better, what I ment was the head would can just be taken off with an allen screw. Any other HHA or scope that its taped can be screwed to the dovetail. So even the older fixed 3 pin HHA can be make to fit a a newer sight.

    So you mean that if I shoot a HHA 1 pin right now, I can just take off the housing and put a 3 pin housing HHA if I wanted to switch?

    Okay thats what I thought.
    Thats how I see it, I might end up getting a Brushfire fx sight (its a 3 pin) and just buy the speed dial frame and combine the two.

    Couple of things... I think Bling had a HHA for sale, it was a dial but the just a single pin.



    Second thing, I love HHA sights in a single pin but their mutipin housing sucked. The reason they stopped making them was mostly because they didnt sell well...and for a a good reason .... they were very tight and cluttered for the size.


    CBE, MGB and Spot Hogg are all better choices in a mulipin slider.

    They have a 5 pin that the housing is 1 3/4 and maybe take out a couple pins. I also saw a extension for the sight which would put it out a little further and open up the gap more, I'm not to worried about it being tight.

    Have you ever shot with the .10 pin? I use the .19 and I've been told that the .10 is like a hair.

    I shoot a .19 single pin now and for the longer distances i would want the .10 for the bottom pin but it's either one or the other, ideally I would have the top .19 and the other two pins .10

    I got the .10 on my optimizer lite ultra and honestly its so bright ( 3ft of fiber optic) that I cant even notice a difference between that and the .19 pins. But when I cover up the fiber optics I can see how small it actually is.
