SWAT April 2009
Old Man Sights
by Erick Gelhaus

One thing about the firearms world is that very little is truly new. The dangerous game sight of African hunting fame is one such item that has reappeared.

These sights consist of a front sight post with ball on it and a rear sight base, generally with three shallow Vs graduated for distance—each folds down.
