Injun Ryder, SASS #36201L Posted January 27 Share Posted January 27 You ever hear about something that sounds plausible but you cannot find any corroborating evidence to verify it? A few years ago, a very knowledgeable Mauser rifle collector told me that the width of the front sight on the 1903 Springfield (and I assume the Mauser) was approximately the width of a normal person at a distance of 300 yards (I think) so that the front sight could be used as a rudimentary range finder. I searched and searched for any information to back up his statement but so far - zilch. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
