THE MORGAN AA GUN SIGHT MOUNTED ON A WATER-COOLED MACHINE GUN


The rear sight takes care of the superelevation element while the front sight handles the target lead in an inclined plane. In other terms, the rear sight takes care of the ballistic data while the front site takes care of the geometrical data necessitated by the movement of the target. The separation of both sights gives it an advantage as the geometric data is expressed in a single item – i.e. the measurement in the direction of the target’s apparent movement.
