I have NM sights frnt & rear on my M1A. I'm finding that I prefer the standard,(battle) rear aperture as opposed to the NM. Is it my old eyes or what? Has this happened to anyone?
Any opinions would be welcome.

I agree with you, my M1A standard has NM front/back sights, but I prefer the battle sights setup that my scout and LRB service rifles have, you can just pickup on your target quicker, but I guess when going for tight,consistent groupings the NM sights come in handy

On my NM rifle I shoot in HP competition, I switched out the narrow NM front sight for a standard sight two years ago. Helped me out a lot with my aging eyes.

Must be I'm not the only one thinking this way. I must be weird too.

+1 again. My older eyes like the battle rear sight and the NM front.

Maybe we're all weird?!?....

I see potential for an auxillary chapter for the M14RA...The Weirdo Contengent! Possible Team mission statements:

1) We can't see what we're shooting at, but we pull the trigger anyway!
2) Just pull the trigger until your spotter says HIT
3) WTHDTLSG?
4) Sorry about that, but a hit on YOUR target is an improvement for me!

I have a NM .072 front and a old style non hooded .595 NM rear. The rear is counter bored on the front side to reduce glare.
