Rifle Rear Sight Question
« on: October 24, 2015, 04:02:46 PM »
In the latest WBAS handbook, the rear sight is addressed as such:

"Rear sights may be blue, black, or stainless or any color allowed for the front
sight. Rear sights may utilize an insert of any color allowed for the front sight."

Does this mean that the rear sight can have a sighting diamond on it (found on Marlin rifles and some 1873 rifles), or does this diamond have to be blacked out (as I have always understood the rule to be)?
