APPLlCATI/ON FILED APR. 21, |915.

GEORGE FRANK, 0F NEOPIT, WISCONSIN.
GUN-SIGHT.
Application led April 21, 1915.
To all whom ,z' may concern.'
Be it known that I, GEORGE FRANK, a citi- Zen of the United States, residing at Neopit, in the county of Shawano and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gun-Sights; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to new and useful improvements in gun sights and more particularly to that class used in connection with fire arms, and my object is to provide a sight for the forward end of the re arm and so construct the same that a true bead may be readily and quickly obtained.
A further object is to so construct the parts of the sight that light will be reflected directly on to the bead. And a further object is to so construct the sight that the approximate range may be quickly obtained as when liring at a large or moving object. And a further object is to so construct the sight that it may be applied to use in connection with any preferred make of fire arm.
@ther objects and advantages will be hereinafter set forth and more particularly pointed out in the accompanying specification.
In the accompanying drawings which are made a part of this application, Figure 1 is an elevation of the forward end of a riie barrel, showing my improved form of sight applied thereto. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal central sectional View of the sight as seen on line 2 2 of Fig. 3, and Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional View as seen on line 3-3 of Fig. 2.
Referring to the drawings in which similar reference numerals designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, 1 indicates a rifle barrel which may be constructed in the usual or any preferred manner, said barrel having a transversely eX- tending recess 2 preferably dove-tailed, in which is adapted to enter the dove-tailed tongue 3 of my improved form of sight 4 and by means of which the sight is attached to the gun barrel. The sight proper consists of a body 5 which terminates in upwardly extending wing sections 6, thereby forming a longitudinally extending channel 7 the full length of the sight. The bottom portion of the channel 7 is substantially semicircular in cross section, the side walls Specication of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 22,877.
of the channel being gradually inclined outwardly to a point adjacent the upper edges of the wings where they are curved oppositely to the curvature of the base of the channel and by so curving the base and side walls of the channel, the light will be more readily reflected into the bottom portion of the channel and directly on to the sighting bead 8, thus giving a clearer vision of the bead.
The bead 8 is secured in any preferred manner in the body portion of the sight and substantially at the transverse and longitudinal center of the sight and is preferably constructed of some light colored material preferably of bone or pearl substance to render a decided contrast between the bead and the remaining portion of the sight.'
By curving the walls of the vchannel as shown, it peculiarly adapts the sight for use in quick firing as when shooting at a moving object, as the eye will readily travel down the inclined sides of the channel into the curved base portion thereof, thus quickly bringing the object into sufliciently close range as to make a hit, adapting the firearm for use in hunting deer or vother rapidly traveling game. It will be readily understood that when the vision is directed through the rear sight and the object or animal is brought into the field of the base of the channel the range will be sufficiently accurate to make a hit, although not absolutely centered upon the bead, and in View of the curvature of the walls of the channel, the range may be very quickly obtained.
In order to more readily bring the bead into proper vision as when the firearm is being raised to the shoulder, the base of the channel 7 is slightly inclined from the forward to the rear end of the body portion, the extreme inward end of the base of the chan nel being curved downwardly as shown at 9 in Fig. 2, while the top edges 10 of the wings are similarly inclined and the forward edges 11 thereof cut at an angle. By extending the edges of the wings and the base of the channel at the angle shown and curving the base of the channel at its forward end, the line of vision can be more quickly obtained when the firearm is being raised into sighting position as there are no abrupt faces to be encountered, the angles and curved portions readily guiding the line of vision to the central portion of the sight.
In view of the simplicity of the parts forming the sight, it can be very cheaply constructed and can be applied to any form of firearm as desired and the ordinary sight may be removed and my improved form of 5 sight substituted therefor, and it Will be furvther understood that the sight may be advantageously used in target shooting in view of the fact that the light is reflected directly on the bead as Well as for shooting running game in view of the fact that the curvature of the walls of the sight enables the object to be quickly brought into the field of the sight.
lVhat I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A sight for irearms comprising a body portion having upwardly extending wings forming a channel longitudinally of the sight, the base of the channel being semicircular in cross section and the side walls thereof inclined outwardly from the curved portion to their upper edges, and a bead in said channel.
2. A sight for rearms comprising a body portion having upwardly extending Wings forming a channel longitudinally of the sight, the base of the channel being inclined downwardly from its front to its rear edge, the side Walls of the channel also being inclined outwardly from the channel to their upper edges, the top edges of the wings being inclined downwardly from their front to their rear ends, and a bead located in said channel.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing Witnesses.
GEORGE FRANK.
