    Am I AIMING wrong ???

    This is a 1953 Remington game master, the elevation wedge is removed.

    When I shoot at 80 and 100 yards, it looks like im 1 to 1.5 feet high...

    When I aim, im using the top (ears) of this rear sight...

    There's a small little groove at the very bottom, it's nearly the exact width of the front sight,

    It kinda seems like this is what I need to aim through.

    Can anyone help me out here ?Click image for larger version.

    Front sight is too low

    Hi. You're correct. You should be aiming through the little notch at the bottom. Your front sight must be awfully short if it's still that high without the rear sight ramp! Here's what the "correct" sight picture should look like. Ed

    The small notch at the bottom is correct.

    Yep, put the front blade in the notch.

    You should see an instant improvement.

    This is why I love this website.

    Thank you all so much...

    And yes, I was roughly 2ft high yesterday, I was splitting the difference of yesterday and a year ago when I was shooting paper.

    Yesterday I was shooting clay pigeons on a hillside with the distant family,

    Is there a name for this type of rear sight?

    It's this a Remington thing ?

    It's called a buckhorn rear sight. Lots of manufacturers use them.

    Yours is a semi buckhorn, redlegEd's is a 3/4 buckhorn. On a full buckhorn, the "horns" almost touch. Put the bead in the u-notch and fire away.

    Interesting, I actually thought the sight ears were to see the animal.

    Theoretically, if that were the case, this sight would be great.....

    With both eyes open, the sights appear superimposed on the target. With the full buckhorn you can use the top, where you were ,as a long range sight. Or so I've read, never tried it myself.
