" I find that I can often shoot just as good, "..............don't I wish. It seams with age, everything is getting farther away and out of focus. with me it's glass or nothing.
Same here. I have a moderate level of astigmatism which means that if I wanted to use irons I'd have to wear trifocals or progressives and look like a Bobblehead moving my head up and down rapidly while trying to align the front and rear sights with target, and I simply refuse.

Thankfully, with an optic (traditional scope, dot, or reflex optic) I can see both target and reticle clearly...a complete win-win for me!

BTW, nice looking 12/15! I've been considering those models as well as other BSA Martini models for some time now. I peruse Simpson, LTD quite often, and there's a good chance that I looked at and considered that very same rifle :)

I hope you get much enjoyment out of it!

Is that the only way? What about a single lens, ground with your cylindrical correction* attached to the rearsight? Plenty of pronecand position shooters do this. And the lens is squarer and better centred to the sightline.

*and +.5 on the distance for a more comfortable focal length.
That's some interesting information, thank you! But since I'm just an older RA inflicted backyard casual target shooter at best (LOL), for me, the simplest and most affective way around my vision/sighting issues encountered during either target shooting, plinking, or while carrying concealed, has been an optic of some type.

Nit picking time

That's a Model 15 with the rear aperture integral with the receiver, not a 12/15, which came later and had a separate, removable rear aperture sight.
This is one of the reasons I visit this place! I'm battin' a thousand lately, so perhaps I should either talk less, or talk about things I know more about :confused:

Thanks everyone for the edumication.

(LOL)
