Hey, Ed and Steve: What are the iron sights like on the Blaser? Is the pip too big like on the Sakos, covering a buffalo chest at fifty metres? Or are they more precise, able to make an accurate shot at 100m or 120m on a buffalo?

I did practice with the open sights but not extensively.
My sight picture was putting the gold bead in the "v" so the bead was just fully visible.
I used standard high power targets at 100 yards and did not find that the bead was overly large.
I found the sight perfectly zeroed out of the box at 100 yards; I am guessing that the zero was probably really 100M.
The sights can possibly snag on brush but I didn't find it a problem in practice.
These are the best open sights on any hunting rifle that I own; very sturdy and you won't hurt them.
I also had some peace of mind knowing I had great open sights in case some sort of disaster occurred with my scope.

Here are the pictures of the sights on my .375 H&H Mag barrel:

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
