P. R. DINDI'NGE'R GUN SIGHT Filed April 3, 1928 Patented Apr. 22, 1930 PATENT OFFICE PAUL R. DINDINGER, on nnonnnon, ARIZONA GUN SIGHT Application filed April 3,

This invention relates to improved gun sights and more particularly a fore-sight.

The primary object of the invention is to provide a novel construction of fore-sight, which may be used advantageously in connection with any practical and well known form of rear-sight, the fore-sight embodying a restricted sight opening, and an enlarged sight opening whereby not only a line of sight can be drawn and easily maintained on a moving object, but the entire surrounding area in the immediate vicinity of the point on which the line of sight may be concentrated can be clearly seen.

A further object of the invention is to provide an open form of dark colored fore-sight having a restricted sight opening with light reflecting areas, such as gQlCl Qn each side thereof, so that the sun or light'rays falling thereon will accentuate the sight opening against any background or object being aimed at.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a gun sight which will be cheap and inexpensive to manufacture, and which is so designed that its component parts will not in any way interfere with the focusing and maintaining on a line of sight on a moving object.

With these and other objects in view the invention comprises the various novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will appear more fully hereinafter and be set forth with particularity in the appended claims.

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of my improved form of gun fore-sight.

Fig. 2 is a sectional elevation of the foresight attached to a round gun barrel of the carbine type.

Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 33 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a side elevation of a modified form of my invention shown attached to an octagon gun barrel of the rifle type.

Fig. 5 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4.

Referring more particularly to the accompanying drawings, it will be seen that the fore-sight shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3, is de- 1928. Serial No. 267,055.

signed for use in connection with a round gun barrel of the carbine type, and comprises a flat base plate 1 of substantially rectangular shape, from the central portion of which depends a vertically and longitudinally disposed tongue 2, adapted to snugly fit within a correspondingly shaped groove 3 formed in the upper terminal part of the gun barrel 4:- The rear transverse portions 5 of the base plate curve inwardly and rearwardly from the side edges 6 to the downwardly curved end 7 of the tongue 2. An opening 8 is provided in the tongue intermediate, its ends for the reception of a suitable anchoring pin 9, which extends transversely through the upper portion of the gun barrel.

Extending upwardly and inwardly from the side edges of the base plate there are curved arms 10. These arms extend up over the base plate to points on opposite sides of a line in vertical alignment with the longitudinal center of the base plate to provide a restricted sight opening 11. The forward face of the arms is inclined upwardly and rearwardly for a purpose which will presently appear, while the inner terminal edges of the arms extend outwardly and rearwardly from the front face of the arms to provide a diverging sight opening, whereby the line of sight will not be obstructed or affected in any way by such light as may be reflected from the oppositely disposed terminal ends of the arms. The rear face of the arms extends outwardly and downwardly in a symmetrical compound curve to the rear terminal side edge of the base plate.

The front face of the arms on each side of the sight opening is covered with a light reflecting substance 12, such as gold or any mnit'aafit 'traeianfi atie nnnwni a peal-tuna und r" light or sun rays. By reason "ofth'e fact that the entire 'front face of the arms is inclined upwardly and rearwardly, the rays of the sun or light will strike fully upon the gold or other light reflecting areas 12 and thereby accentuate the restricted sight opening between the opposed terminal ends of the arms, especially inasmuch as the sight is made of gun metal or metal of other dark contrasting color.

From the foregoing it will be apparent that I have not only provided a gun sight by the use of which a line of sight can be quickl 7 g and readily obtained and maintained in f0 lowing a moving object, but one which will permit at all times of a maximum amount of visibility of the entire area surrounding the line of sight.

In Figs. 4 and 5, I have shown a slightly modified form of the invention, which differs from the preceding form only in the manner of attaching it to an octagon gun barrel of the rifle type. In this case the bottom of the base plate 1, is provided with a wedge-shaped tenon 13 extending transversely thereof, which is adapted to fit within a corresponding wedge-shaped groove 14 formed transversely in the top of the gun barrel. By such construction, I eliminate the necessity for an anchoring pin as required with the preceding form of my invention.

In view of the above, it will be readily apparent that both forms of my invention may not only be used effectively in connection with moving objects, but may also be effectively used in target practice.

I claim:

1. As an article of manufacture, a dark colored gun sight formed in a single unit comprising a base plate, arms extending ,upwardly and inwardly over the base plate to provide a restricted sight opening between the opposing terminal ends of said arms, the oppositely disposed terminal ends of said arms diverging rearwardly in a plane parallel to the base plate, and a coating of light reflecting substance arranged on the forward face of said arms on opposite sides of said restricted opening, and means whereby the base plate may be attached to a gun barrel.

2. As an article of manufacture, a dark colored gun sight formed in a single iiiiit comprising a base plate, curved arms extending upwardly and inwardly over the base plate from the opposite side edges of the base plate to provide a restricted sight opening between the terminal opposing ends of said""""" arms, the forward face of said arms being inclined upwardly and rearwardly from the base plate, amnatinglofvlightmeflectlng sgbstance arranged on the forward face of said arms on opposite sides of said restricted sight opening, and a perforated tongue depending from said base plate for the purpose set forth.

In testimony whereof I have aiiixed my signature.
