Open sights - What's the furthest you'll shoot?
« on: June 10, 2021, 11:07:01 AM »
I pulled out my ATI Nova Liberty the other day and, for the first time since I was in the service, shot open sights to 25 yards.  I surprised myself and did better than I anticipated.  The Liberty's sights are decent, but certainly not very precise.  The receiver and barrel band both look like they have 11mm rails so I'm thinking about pushing the envelope, getting better sights and shooting longer distances.  What's a reasonably good distance?  What's the furthest you've shot open sights?  Any tips?

I have shot out to 100 yards with a Diana48 with success. I use Williams rear and Diana front hooded sight.

I shoot an Armada 22 using only Open Sights.

I don't know for sure but approximately 75 yards and it is hit or miss for me.  (but those squirrels are tricky buggers, I think I hit them and they run off).

Approximately 20 to 50 yards... DEADLY !

I find using a Scope to be hard to locate the target and in turn I lose the shot, even though I am starting to think about one.   
It is probably just me but I prefer the open sights.

Also thinking on a Flip Mount for a Scope !
