Hey guys,

Wondering what the difference in the windage knobs is between the new style "flat" knob and the older knob. Is it merely cosmetic or is there some functional difference as well?

Thanks for any info,

Drivie

IIRC the old knob was a standard A2, and because it was on the wrong side it was backwards. You are probably less likely to accidentally move the new knob. ARMS will send you a kit to upgrade to the new knob for $18 + shipping.

Thanks for the info Imposter. Why did they place the knob on the "wrong" side to begin with? Is there any disadvantage to using the older A2-style knob? Thanks! Drivie

If you think about it most shooters are right handed and therefore the windage knob is best seen and ajusted on the left side when your zeroing the weapon and you can keep your hand in control of the weapon better the pistol grip. Nothing is more backwards than the knob being on the right side so you can't see what your doing unless your a lefty, plus you have to move your weapons position, lean over the tilted weapon to see the setting, remove your hand off the weapons pistol grip which means less control. The #40 has a lot of features that make it ahead of all the others. Good Shootin, Jack
