Hey Guys, Nick from NCA here with a video tip. Today we’re gonna talk really quickly about sight alignment and sight picture and exactly what that is, how we define it. So, obviously we have sights on a gun, usually we’re dealing with notch and post styles sights so the way in which we define sight alignment is the alignment of the front post sight in the notch of the rear. The front post needs to be perfectly leveled and centered in the notch of our rear sights. So, when we look through our rear sight we’re seeing at the top edge of the front post sight is perfectly level with the top edge of the rear sight and we have equal daylight on both sides of that front sight as perceived through this notch on the rear. Okay, so that’s how we would define sight alignment. That front post in alignment with the rear notch and alignment with your eye.
