Simple Handmade Sight

The Simple Handmade Sight is a makeshift alternative to a weapon's iron sights. Its reticle is simply a single post that comes to a sharp point - not too dissimilar from the German #1 reticle. This scope is particularly useful for close engagements as it provides the widest field of view out of all the scopes, but it is usually not practical at longer distances due to its negative magnification making distant targets appear smaller. Alternatively, it can be used when the weapon's iron sights are obscured by barrel attachments such as the Silencer or by the lighting caused by Fire Arrows.

A decently cheap sight. It reduces your FOV by 50%, so you will have a harder time shooting targets at longer ranges because of the targets being visually smaller and the higher sensitivity when aiming down.
With pattern weapons this is not beneficial as the recoil is decently small, however with weapons like the M249 and semi-rifle which have more recoil compared to most pattern weapons.

The reduced FOV makes it more practical for close-ranged weapons like the shotgun or smg, but if you're not a fan of your weapon's iron-sights it might be worth the investment.

If using fire arrows with crossbow,the scope will elevate vision to above the flame.

If you are having trouble controlling the recoil of a weapon, let's say ak-47 or mp5, adding this on will help a lot, since it reduces the zoom by 0.5x, which means that you have to move your mouse less to compensate for the recoil. It's the same how with a 16x scope spraying is impossible on ak.

Good for Semi-Automatic Rifle , Python Revolver , M249 , and Custom SMG . Overall a cheap but good sight that is better than iron sights.
