Specification of Letters Patent.
iratented May 29,1906.
Application filed October 14,1905x Serial No 282,79'7- v (ml w/wm, it iii/my concern.-
' Be it known that 1, JAMES HENRY NICK- ERSON, a subject of the King of Great Britain, residing at Nelson, in the Province of British 7 Columbia and Dominion of Canada, have incuracy in focusing an object either relatively close or distantly removed from the shooter, the sighting being secured in such manner as that the exact center or part of the object aimed at will be brought between the members of the sight, instead of in front of it.
\Vith gun-sights as almost univcrsall y heretofore constructed accuracy in sighting was secured by bringing the sight proper into alinement with the object at which. aim was taken, and the objection to this manner of sighting is that where the object is of large size it is almost impossible exactly to aline the center of the object with the center of the si ht for the reason that the sight covers the (ibject, and if the latter be small completely hides it from view. I
The novelty of the present invention resides in the fact that instead of centering the sight upon. an object the latter is centered relatively to two vertical lines, the result being that ifan exact space be maintained between the object and the two lines exact sighting will be secured. With the above and other objects in view, as will appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same consists, gen- .erally stated, in a front sight for firearms having a vertical focusing-slot and sight-guides disposed at right angles thereto and spaced apart into definite divisions, the sight-guides strongly contrasting in color with the sight to cause them to stand out with distinctness, thereby to insure absolute focusing and aiming of the focusing-slot relatively to the ob ject.
The invention consists, further, in the novel details of construction and combination of parts of a front sight for firearms, as will be hereinafter fiillydescribed and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and'in which like characters of reference indicate corresponding parts, Figure is a view in side elevation exhibiting a rifle equipped with the front sight of the present invention. Fig. 2 is a View in elevation of the sight. Fig. 3 is a perspective view thereof. Fig. 4 is a view in elevation of the rear sight; i
Referring to the drawings, R designates a firearm, which in this instance is shown as a rifle, although it is to be understood that the invention. is equally adaptable to firearms of other description, such as revolvers or to 0rdnance, and as its application thereto will be obyious detailed illustration thereoffis omitte( At the front end of the rifle-barrel and combined therewith in any suitable manner is the sight which constitutes the gist of the present invention and comprises a base 1, a sight proper, 2, provided with a vertical foefusitigslot 3, the walls of which are parallel practically throughout their entire length, and sight-guides 4 disposed at right angles to the slot and secured to the sight in any preferred manner.
The sight will be made of any suitable material, preferably of steel, tempered and finished to a dark color in order to contrast strongly with the sight-guides, which "will be. made of some bright material, preferably of aluminium on account of its non-oxidizing qualities.
As herein shown, there are five of the sightguides, the lowest one of which is disposed at the upper terminals of the walls of a-V-sight nick 5, the lower end of which intersects the base, andv the nick thus formed corresponds with a similar V-sight nick 6 in the rear sight 7 7, which be of the usual or any preferred construction.
Beginnin with the top of the sight itsupper terminiwill indicate a range of one hundred yards when its upper edge is in alinement with the like edge of the back sight, the corners of the sight-nick 6' being in line with the corners of the front si ht. The first sightguide helm. the'top wil indicate two hundred yarcisrwhen the upper edge of the back sight is brought in line with it and the corners of the V-nick are brou ht inline with the inner ends of the first sig t-guide, and so on down to the last sight-gulde.
The focusing-slot has its opposed walls arranged in exact parallelism from the u per end of the sight down to the beginning 0 the V-nick 5, this for the-purpose of allowing a clear vision of the object aimed at in shooting at six hundred yards, as the .!-nick 3 will be in exact line with the V-nick 5.
The top of the sight and also the sight-- guides when in line with the back sight clearly show when the gun is held level and prevents shooting to the right or left of object aimed at. The number of sight-guides em loyed will be governed by the character of tr e gun on whichthe sight is used. v
In the use. of'the sight the object is brought between the Walls of the slot and equidistant therefrom, and thiSW'lll effect the exact centering, the trajectory bein determined by:
the approximate distance or the object; and
when the sight is centered if the'riflehe trues.
accurate shooting is bound'to result.
By theempleynientoi the focusing-slot it r:
is elaimed is In a gun, the combination wlth a rear sight rovided with a V-sight nick, of a front sight a'ving a.foci1sing-slot terminating in a V- sight nick, the Walls of the slot being parallel to each other, and spaced siglit-guides of bright colordisposed at right angles-tome" slot.
