Is anyone shooting smallbore with iron sights?

Post by shooterer »

I picked up a Anschutz 1827 (biathlon) this off season and thought I would try it.

Wish me luck :)
Stand up for what is right.... even if you stand alone.

I've never seen anyone doing that regularly, but it sounds like a fun challenge. Going back to a scope will seem easy by comparison!

You may want to try "frame hold" for your elevation. Don't forget to focus on the front sight, not the target.

I've done it before with a Vostok CM2. Was a lot of fun.

Ed Sharp always shoots fifth scale standard smallbore rifle and smallbore hunting rifle with iron sights at the Mid Carolina Rifle Club and Savannah River Rifle and Pistol Club. I've tried it a few times at matches and practice on fifth scale with my Henry Frontier Long Barrel .22 LR with a tang sight. That built confidence when shooting at half scale lever action matches.

Wes shoots iron sites here in Missoula. He has a variety of kool old guns to shoot too. He'll be at iron man if you can make it up this way.
I buy all my guns from t-rex. He's a small arms dealer.
