Can they teach me how to have better eye sight? I just put a globe front on it and scores improved. I got lucky and found a redfield sight and inserts on ebay. Works like a champ. I also ran across some bad azzed olympic sights that are damn cool. The guy wants $200.00 for them, but they are nice. I'm shooting weak handed (right handed), because my dominant eye sucks:

Good shooting. The front sight with an aperture is a huge help vs. a post for my 57 year old eyes. Play around with different size openings to find what works best for you regarding the amount of white you see around the aiming black. An adjustable rear iris is helpful as well. There are also lenses that can be used in the rear to allow a fine tuning of your focus on the front sight.

In the NRA long range/palma shooting I like, there is not much difference in scores between the scopes vs. irons... the eye does a surprisingly good job of lining up concentric circles.

Good post Mike. The olympic sight set I found has an adjustable iris on the rear. I'm very tempted to buy that set and put it on this rifle. I need every bit of help I can get!!! My right eye isn't too bad yet, but it is almost impossible to use my left eye with a peep sight.. Sucks, but such is life..

Don't give up on your right eye yet... i wear a +5.00 correction contact with a correction for astigmatism in my right eye, and my vision is not holding me back... wind reading ability maybe ;-).

I've got one of those wonderful old rifles too! Grandpa and Dad both shot it in matches. I just use it now and again for practice.

Mine is a shooter grade 52b set up with a Weaver K-6.

We use it for clean kills on ground squirrels to a little over 100 yards with Remington Yellow Jackets.

That combination squeezes about all you can get out of a .22 lr for varmint shooting.

Hey BSA, that's a Lyman 48 alright. Look on the back and see if it's stamped Lyman FH. If it is that's the sight that originally came on most "B" target models. By the way nice rifle. BCM

Bravo
