My memory is not the best, but I think I read on this forum some time ago that Swedish shooters used the old "V" notch and barleycorn front sight so that the sight picture held the top of the front sight at the bottom of the "V"; this of course was before the sight conversion. Such a sight picture would obviously drop the POI, so maybe this was a technique for engaging targets at less than 300 meters? Anyone have any information on this?
Damn the expense, use your turn signals today... and as a special favour, try doing it before you have two wheels in the next lane.
Cant help the OP with his question but I sure like the barley corn sights on both my '02 m96 and '43 Husky FSR. I've set my sights for a 200 yard 6 oclock hold on NRA SR targets as I shoot the CMP Vintage matches.
They are a "hard" sight to use (Barley corn front, "V" notch rear on the '02) but can be very accurate
