    The OPEN SIGHT and the HUMAN EYE A COMMENTARY UPON THE OPTICS OF MARKSMANSHIP THAT EXPLAINS WHY THE OPEN "BATTLE SIGHT" ON THE SPRINGFIELD RIFLE WAS CAST INTO THE LIMBO OF GREAT MISTAKES

    Vol. 3 No. 2 Pg. 105

    I don't know about that one...I think you'd get the phone book on that one. Lots of guys shot extremely well at some fantastic distances with those sights...
