Iron Sights Work Fine but Check Out This Mini Dot -Wednesday, July 15, 2020
What’s wrong with iron sights? Nothing. Not a solitary thing. They don’t require batteries, or any sort of voodoo to work. Line the post with the aperture and squeeze the trigger. Hit. Oh, you may have to concentrate a bit more and adjust your hold via Kentucky windage if shooting out beyond 200 yards, but the trusty iron sights can get the job done all day, every day. But not every rifle has a set of sights on it these days. The last rifle I built was a flat-top free-floater with a 16” pencil barrel. I knew I wanted a lightweight carbine and thought this would be the best route to go.
