Unblinking Eye
MannlicherBanner

This drawing from W.H.B. Smith’s book shows the original configuration with a tall front sight and the rear sight in front of the breech.  After the first year of production, the rear sight was moved all the way to the rear of the gun to allow the longest possible sight radius.  The side plate is shown removed.
