I would guess these are illegal for GSSF use, am I right?
The Ameriglo U-Wraps are by no means traditional notch and post design. They are a cross between an express sight and a ghost ring, so they would only be permitted in Masters/Unlimited Category.
Danny, are these the sights that WalterGA was testing (in prototype form) and reporting on before his untimely disappearence from GT? Are they now in production?
They are shown at www.ameriglo.com so I think they are in production. I'll check with Rick at AmeriGlo when I speak with him on Monday.
Thanks, Danny. I already e-mailed a question and got an answer from Rick. It seems that (a) the sights are in production, and (b) Ameriglo has sold out their first supply; more expected in about three weeks.
My question to Rick was about aligning these sights in the daylight. Rick confirmed my assumption that one aligns the top of the front sight with the top of the rear sight, EXACTLY as one aligns any post-and-notch sight. That being the case, these sights could be considered post-and-notch sights with a rather large and rounded notch! They evidently do NOT align the way "ghost ring" aperture sights do at all. In fact, looking at them kinda reminded me of the rounded-u rear sights one often sees on 19th century lever action rifles--I think there's a name for this type of sight but I can't recall it at the moment.
Given the way one aligns these Ameriglo sights, I don't see why they would be illegal in GSSF--but the minds of the Rulemeisters move in mysterious ways! ;g
Buckhorn rear sight I believe, but I'm old and I might be mistaken, but never ignored. Right Jerry?
True, he won't be ignored!
So true Fireglock. How could anyone ever ignor Glenn!
Thanks Pete for noticing. ;z ;z ;z
Bingo! That's what I was looking for. No mistake! ;c
