The Morgan Machinegun Gunsight was developed specifically for the 59th CA by Major Maurice Morgan for the 1936 target practice. Itís designed to give a large number of hits on an aerial target flying on a limited variety of courses. Although results in 1936 were satisfactory the improvements on the sights in 1937 led the creator to believe that it can be adapted as a standard for the Coast Artillery AA.
