The rear sight of the Plinkster is adequate. We like the screw adjustment for elevation. The rear leaf of the Plinkster sight folds down. We like this feature.
We also ordered an additional 25-round magazine that resembles an AR-15 magazine for use with the Plinkster. This made the firing tests go faster, with less time loading magazines. The 25-round capacity magazine neatly snaps into place, and a lever on the magazine manipulates the magazine release, which is covered by the new magazine.
The Plinkster’s magazine release (arrow) is well situated for easy operation with standard magazines. The crossbolt safety sits just to the right of the release and was positive and in operation, we found.
