EyePal Peep Sighting kit and Bob's as-issued M1 Garand range report

Here's a note from an M1 Garand shooter;

Well, went out and shot this morning. Was in the low 30's and windy, mixed clouds and sun. Got all set up to shoot off hand and pulled the trigger and no boom! Looked and the tip of the firing pin had broken off. So, I carry spare bolt parts and a combo tool and changed the firing pin out. Took about ten minutes. By then was about frozen but shot all 3 positions and was very pleased with the sight picture. The 100 yard range we shoot at is east shooting west so we have light coming over left shoulder and varying shadows on the targets. This is the best I have seen the sights and target in years. I did adjust the location on my glasses for each position.....offhand, sitting and prone but it wasn't much more than an eighth inch change if that. Just put my thumbnail on the edge and had a finger on the eye pal, and nudged it in the direction I wanted it to go, the thumbnail would hunker it up enough to break it's hold and allow me to move it. I was afraid that there would be decreased light levels that would not allow me to see the target but that was not the case.
Am very happy with the results, groups tighter, especially sitting. All scores in the black! Can't wait to get out and shoot again.
Best regards,
Bob L. Ohio

EyePal® Peep Sighting System aiming setup with an MAS 45 rifle

Here's an EyePal How-to video about getting a perfect MAS 45 sight picture where both sights and the distant target are in focus, all at the same time. So simple, yet any human can do it.

EyePal®Peep Sight Airgun-Academy reviews 4-2013

Check out the EyePal® Peep Sighting System conversations are going on at Pyramyd Air's Airgun-Academy;   EyePalUSA.com



For iron-sight shooters, both firearms and air-guns, the simplest solution is the aperture as it exists in the EyePal. Apertures are used in cameras to manage Depth of Field (DoF). The smaller the aperture, the DoF produces an image where the foreground and background are in focus. 

The larger the aperture, the foreground and background will be out of focus. Only the subject, say at 10 ft, will be in focus.

Check out the EyePal article in the April issue of Airgun Hobbyist magazine for more details.
