A look down the sights of over 100 C&R Firearms

    In our efforts to document as many historical small arms as possible we realized that one of the first things anyone does with a newly encountered firearm is look down the sights.  However, this view is so often omitted from any documentation of a firearm.  We set out to correct this.

    We’ve changed cameras three times and methods nearly a dozen, so some images are better than others.  Good or bad, the C&Rsenal POV gallery now boasts over 100 sight pictures.  Here are some of our favorites.

    Othais is practically useless with modern firearms. That’s OK though, because he specializes in Curio and Relic military pieces and has agreed to decorate The Firearm Blog with a little history. He maintains his own site, C&Rsenal, with the help of his friends and the collector community.
