SIGHTS FOR .22 High Power
SIGHTS FOR .22 H. P.—Which is the best sight for a .22 H. P. Sheard’s gold bead or gold front sight? Is Sheard’s Three Leaf rear sight better for all-around use on this rifle than the regular factory sight?
The Sheard gold bead front sight is as good a sight as you can get anywhere, and it is claimed to be stronger than other gold bead sights, which it should be, for it costs more. In actual use (shooting) all gold bead sights are alike, if of the same size. Regarding rear sights, don’t think much of the one that is furnished on this rifle, but I seldom use the rear barrel sight any way. No rifle for hunting is complete without a peep sight, and when a gun is thus equipped there is seldom any use for a rear barrel sight, and the rear sight, unless it will fold down flat, interferes with the use of the peep. But without a peep sight, I think you will find the Sheard Three Leaf sight a very good one. If I were sighting a .22 H.P., I would adjust sights for both high power and short range loads—the peep sight for the full charge, and one of these Sheard’s Three Leaf rear sights on the barrel, and I would have this leaf sight adjusted for short range and mid-range loads for several ranges. I would like the sight better if the three leaves were all alike, with flat top and a small U notch in each. The thing I like best about this sight is that each of the three leaves are separately adjustable.
