For over half a century hunters and sportsmen have used Buckhorn sights on their rifles, which do not permit of any side adjustment for drift or windage, while for elevation the steps are very coarse, impossible of being finely adjusted. Many rifles are condemned by shooters because they do not get satisfactory results, when in most cases it is the fault of the sights not being properly aligned.
Every user of a rifle should finally adjust the sights to suit his own eyesight and particular cartridge he intends to use. However carefully rifles may be sighted and adjusted in the factory, it is a well-known fact that the eyes of no two persons are focused exactly alike, therefore to secure the most perfect results it is necessary for the user himself to finally adjust his sights.
