You can see the two semi-circles of correction towards the inside above the nose pads, on the upper edge. Like being cross-eyed. I hope this (convergence) works – we’ll find out this weekend if it’s not drenching down rain on Saturday. Forecast is iffy. I have one do-over in case the location of the correction needs to move…
It works pretty good with the Sig when I put my chin on my chest, but I have a fight over which eye to use, and I’m getting a bit of weirdness on the AR’s and again that’s because I’m cross-dominant – but the front sight is clear and sharp now. What’s cool is I CAN see the thin blade of the Krag, way out there beyond my arm’s reach, and see it through the M1898 Modified sight with teeny-tiny flip-up peep! Whoa!
UPDATE: During the time it was in service Ordnance messed around with sights on the Krag like crazy, and initially the M1898 sight had two extra sight-grooves left and right of center for windage shots. In 1900 they recalled all of the 1898 sights and ground-off the weirdness because it was awkward and confusing, and continued to use the modified sights conventionally. You can see the ground-down portions in the overhead view. Then in 1902 the final sight was standardized which was generally a duplicate of the 1898 but without the extra sight grooves to the left and right of center, and a more rounded curve to the backside. In between they had a different 1901 sight that was like the Carbine sight but with different graduations, a camming lever that allowed you to drift the sight in an arc for windage changes, and the whole thing elevated way-up for volly-fire.
Model 1901 – see how the front is drifted off to the left side?
