The formula for Kinetic Energy is K.E.= ½ mv^2. I had to dig back through some old files from the engineering school to understand why in the world the Wyoming Sight Driver works so well. From the formula, you can see that the mass of the object only contributes half of its value, while the velocity value is squared before it is divided by two. What this means is that the spring on the Drifter moves the two-ounce weight fast enough to be as effective as a much larger handheld hammer.
The new, premium version of the Sight Drifter works the same as the original, but has the added advantage of offering interchangeable tips. The brass tips are retained by a small spring and easily slide in and out to change them. A vinyl storage case stores four different diameters that should fit most situations where something in addition to the original large, blunt tip is needed. Aluminum and nylon replacement tips are in the plans as well. The new version is also finely finished with rich bluing and polished brass collars. It is a beautifully made, high-quality tool.
By the time you read this, the Premium Wyoming Sight Drifter should be available from such fine establishments as SPG Sales by calling 660-988-4099 or visiting shopspg.net. Buffalo Arms Company can be reached at 208-263-6953 or visit buffaloarms.com. Contact Shiloh Sharps Rifle Company at 406-932-4266 or shilohrifle.com, or call Wyoming Sight Drifters at 307-421-2127 or visit wyomingsightdrifter.com. The premium version with four tips and the vinyl case retails for $105, while the original version will continue to be available and retails for $35. In addition to being a very handy tool that will become a standard part of your shooting kit, they also make excellent gifts. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and get one on order.
