Ok, I need a little help with the sights on my K31. I cannot see them to save my life. The sights are totally black. Now, my problem is that I am right handed/left eye dominant, and seeing with my right eye alone is a real challenge. I'm sure outdoors it wouldn't be too bad of an issue, but right now I don't have access to an outdoor range. All I have is an indoor range that is rather dark inside (think shooting into a cave). I cannot aim with both eyes open because when I do I see two rifles. So I have to close my left eye. However, I can't even see the barrel let alone the front sight.
The white paint doesn't help at all. So are there any suggestions as to what I can do with that front sight? I would rather not replace it if possible because I don't want to alter this rifle at all. I considered setting a flashlight on the table next to the bag I lay the rifle on to aim, but in order to do that I must "have permission from all other range users." Any ideas?
I was considering those. Apparently I am a rare breed of person who can see red clearer than green, so I was thinking about putting red brightsight paint on it and if it works I may dab the other guns as well.
I too am right handed and left eye dominate. I just shoot rifles left handed. It works for me. It makes it difficult when shooting bolt actions. But the K31 is a straight bolt design. It should work pretty good. Just work the bolt with your left hand.
Also, you're left eye dominate for a reason. It is your strongest eye, in terms of usability. Use it to your advantage.
It isn't an issue with the pistols as I can shoot well with both hands. But when it comes to rifles and shotguns I just don't have the strength in my left arm to to do it for long. I can do AR15s with my left arm, but nothing else, it seems. I never can really get them seated right or anything.
