Not REALLY off topic....but interesting stuff. These people are selling RECTANGULAR peep apertures....

Then again...as I get older I have been seeing funny shaped sights from time to time.... :)

With circular or triangular openings, there is an automatic natural point of reference for the mind to quickly locate center. That instant 'center/windage' alignment appears to be lost using a rectangular peep. Wouldn't you think?

Images are sharper peering through a slot, but the technology isn't new. In fact simple things (such as snow goggles) have used slots for over a century to filter glare and still allow for sharp sight.
It no doubt works, but I can't see any advantage for myself over a rear peep/front post combo.

Others may see things differently I'm sure. ;)
