Gun sights are mainly used on weapons to provide better accuracy and aim. They have adjustable pieces depending on distance and speed. There are several different types of popular gun sights:
Iron Gun Sights
Iron gun sights, or mechanical sights, are simple. They are sometimes adjustable and sometimes fixed. Iron gun sights are typically not used for hunting or sniping, but rather for handguns. They are not as common as optical sights, but they are still used.
Optical Gun Sights
There are two types of optical gun sights: telescopic and reflector. Both are equally important but have different uses. The telescopic sight is basically a small telescope that allows you to see a clearer image. The reflector sight is just a piece of glass that reflects an image, hence the name reflector. Reflector sights were originally used in World War I to ensure accuracy. These types of gun sights are highly different but are both effectively used for weapons and telescopes alike. Many turn to optical gun sights for long-range shooting with rifles. There are two less common, but still often used optical gun sights, which are the collimator sight and the holographic sight.
Fixed Gun Sights
This type of sight is usually used for pistols and allow you to close in on your target. The downside to these sights is that they cannot be easily adjusted. Fixed gun sights are mostly used for handguns and military weaponry.
Buying a gun sight ultimately depends on the gun you have or are looking to buy. Lucky for you, we have numerous types of guns sights up for auction on GunBroker.com! If you’re looking for other parts for your gun, visit our pistol parts or rifle parts pages as well as our ammunition page.
