SIGHTS ON .45 GOVT. RIFLE
SIGHTS ON .45 GOVT. RIFLE—I am sending you a drawing of a sight used on a .45 caliber Government rifle. I do not understand the graduations shown on it. It is an elevating leaf sight and is graduated at the sides and bottom, it has an elevating slide and also turns sideways by means of a thumb-screw. I would like to have somebody tell me how to use it.
The figures on the sides of the leaf refer to hundreds of yards, the right side being graduated from 200 to 1400 yards. Those on the left side are a continuation being from 1400 to 200 yards. Use the lower notch, the one in the triangular opening, for the figures on the right side, and the notch on the end of the slide for the distances marked on the left side. The slide is elevated by loosening the thumb screw on the cud of the leaf. The graduations on the base refer to windage. For hunting purposes it is not used. Keep the mark on the leaf even with the center mark of scale.
