Copper Johns Dead Nuts

The .29 pin size, gives a good point of target, but gets a little large for long distance shooting.
The .19 pin size, are a little hard to see in low light conditions, however on long shots
It gives you a better point of impact location.
Any shooting from 40 yards and closer the .29 will work flawlessly.
Beyond 40 yards and you are shooting at an area rather then a point.
The all metal construction makes it a very durable sight to use on a hunting rig.
All metal pins, with metal set screws, help insure you don?t strip out the threads when sighting in.
The orange ring around the sight housing works well, with a proper sized peep to insure that you have centered your pin location each and every time. Improper peep size and you will have issues with the orange ring being distracting to your eye.
An option for low light conditions is the blue colored after burner light, which attaches in seconds to a threaded hole in the sight housing. The blue light does not distract when used, and causes the pins to really glow.
Be sure to check your local regulations before spending the 15-20 dollars for the after burner light. Many states do not allow artificial light sources to be use to help light the pins.
Installation of the Copper Johns Dead Nuts, is quick and easy, with 2 allen screws that attach to the bows riser. Another allen screw adjusts the horizontal, with a 2nd that adjust the vertical.
I was able to install and have my CJDN sighted in for the basic yardage with in 15 mins.
Another 30 mins and the 30/40/50/60 were all sighted in.
The single largest issue was changing out my peep to have the proper sized opening to center the housing into the peep. There is not a standard size that you will need, as distance from your eye will mandate the size of the peep to use.
Once sighted in, I have not had issues with parts working themselves loose or needing to retighten, and this sight has gone through thousands of shots with my Mathews lx bow.
Options with this sight is a 3 pin , 5 pin, color black or mossy oak camo.
Replacement pins are offered at a cost of about 19.00 for 3 pins,
After burner light cost of 20.00
And now offered is a C.U.P protective flip cap that mounts on the back of the housing and protects the pins when the bow is not in use for around 25.00.
Cost of the Sight, runs from 45-95 dollars, depending on number of pins and color choices.
For the money the Copper Johns Dead Nuts is one of the best on market for a hunting sight.

IMHO :rolleyes: I think they need increment lines with numbers on vertical and the horizontal adjustment to improve their quality. It's difficult to make any fine tuning with out them. Their competition has the marks and it does make it easier.
I also trashed one after about a year wrenching the hex screws adjustment for the horizontal bar. It stripped out at the bottom and came apart at a very inopportune time.
Lucky for me I had another sight on the shelf but it wasn't a dead nut. The trophy ridge matrix is back on and I'm guessing it will stay.
