SIGHTS FOR TARGET PRACTICE
SIGHTS FOR TARGET PRACTICE—I would like to know what kind of open sights are best for target practice. Are the sporting rear and Rocky Mountain front sights good ones for hunters?
With the exception of the military sights I have never found any open sights that suited me for target shooting. I prefer a flat top rear sight with wide, sharp V notch and a dark steel front sight, thick at the base and tapered t. a sharp edge on top, straight on the back and corners not rounded. There are several rear sights that are satisfactory for this use, such as the Winchester Carbine sight, the Sporting Leaf sight, etc., but I would prefer to make a front sight myself. If the gun is to be used for hunting I would have a Lyman or Marble peep sight, the Lyman Elevating Leaf sight with the horns cut off, on the barrel, and a gold bead front sight. I do not like the sights you mention, and few shooters do.
