S?EGIFIGATION forming part Cf Letters Patent NO. 744,651, dated, November 17, 1908. Application filed January 20, 1903. SerialHo. 139.776. (N0 model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, BENJAMIN P. VIcKERY, a citizen of the United States,residin g at Bradley, in the'county of Kankakee and State of Illinois, have invented certainnew and useful Improvements in Gun-Sights; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full,
the object to be shot may be quickly located.
It not infrequently happens that gunners when sighting with an ordinary sight lose their prospective prey simply through their inability to fix their eye on the usually small sight at the opportune time. This, of course, is more especially true of those unskilled in the use of a gun, and for whom my invention is primarily intended. However, its value is of equal importance to first-class marksmen.
The vital advantages and the construction of my improved sight will be hereinafter fully set forth, and more particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of a gun having my improved sight applied. Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the sight. Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the same. Fig. 4 is an end view of the sight as applied to a gun.
, modified form of gun-sight.
The same numerals refer to like parts in all the figures.
1 represents a gun of the double-barrel type, and 2 my improved sight.
The sight 2 is formed of a single piece of metal, bent at 3 3 to conform to the shape of the gun barrel or barrels, as the case may be. The free ends of the sight have perforations 4 4, through which passes a bolt 5, whereby the bent portions 3 3 are firmly clamped to the gun-barrel. At the top of the sight is formed a dome 6, whose side walls 7 are vertical and converge toward the front of the gun to afiord a convenient line of vision when Fig. 5 is a detail perspective view of a and the solid side walls 7 connecting the two.
ends obviouslythe sportsman finds it extremely convenient to focus his'eye on the bird.
The top 10 of the dome is flat, and it affords means for aiming at a bird when it is flying from the gunner, as will bev hereinafter explained.
The mode of sighting according to my improvement is substantially as follows: The sight is conveniently locatednthe cone of the stock of the gun being the gage-point. Should a bird fiy from the left toward the right, the gunner raises his. gun and fixes his line of vision through the dome 6, and as soon as the bird appears on'the left side of the outer end and withinthe dome it is. in line with the gun-barrel. On the other hand, should the bird fly from the right toward the left, the sight is taken from the right-hand side in substantially the same manner. Should, however, the bird fly from the gunner, the
aim is taken from the top 10 and at about the middle thereof, whereupon it is in line with the gun-barrel and may quickly be brought down.
In the modification disclosed in Fig. 5, the principle involved is substantially the same as that of the preferred form, except that the walls 7 7 are parallel instead of diverging. The operation is the same; but I find that it takes a trifle longer to locate the outer end 9*, which is important on manyoccasions.
The invention is simple and, from actual demonstration has been found accurate to a marked degree of efliciency. The easy manner in which the sight may be moved renders it convenient in adjusting it for high or low velocities-that is to say, if, the game is flying at what may be termed standard velocitythe sight is fixed in relation to the cone; but if the game is flying at a lower velocity than the standard the distance be tween the cone and the sight is increased.
What I o'laimas new is 1. A gun-sight which consists of a fiat elongated dome open at both ends and having vertical side walls which converge toward ti; 1 the bottom of the domebeing the top of the 10 front of the gun, and means by which the gnu-barrel, substantially as described.
sight may be secured to a, gun. In testimony whereof I affix my signature 2. The combination with a gun, of a sight in presence of Witnesses.
