Default Call me strange but......

I've fired the WW2 GI Remington Rand, and I prefer the old school sights to any of the "newer" combat sights etc.

You must have younger eyes than me.

Those original combat sights are made for close up shooting. If you can't use your rifle for some reason, that 1911 is next in line before your bayonet or fighting knife or you pick up another rifle.

You may be a natural point shooter and that's a good thing since bad guys seldom stand still or allow you to place a target on their chest.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

If you can see them, the narrow blade front sight can be very precise. I don't mind shooting with GI sights at all.
