Am I missing something on the 1917 Enfield?

I was excited about the U.S. primary-issue rifle till I tried it and found the sights cover up half the screen. The only way Ive been able to get kills with is to use the cross hairs and snap shoot. Oh nce Im ADS, I cant see the target.

And a 100m sweet spot? At that range, the sights would hide an airship.

You aim with that little post at the front.

FUN FACT: The BAR is supposed to have these same exact ironsights.

It has my favourite Scout rifle ironsights. Well, I'd prefer the Springfield, but we still don't have it. ;(

Springfield irons are garbage. later replaced by the superior irons on the M1917.

Use the post? No shit?

The problem is the aperature is so small and everything around it blocks so much real estate, its impossible to locate the target in the aperature, at least not fast enough to do it before the target moves, or you get killed.

With open sights, you can see the front sight and the target and adjust aim quickly.

Realistically, the M1917 Enfield was deemed to have among the best iron sights out of all the WW1 service rifles.

I don't believe the problem with the M1917 Enfield has to do with its iron sights, but rather its bolt-pull animation. This rifle would be far better if the front post were more-or-less pasted to the center of the screen, and then the rear aperture would be panned away from the center of the screen during the bolt-pull animation. The sights are fine, but the target reacquisition is pretty lousy. I can also say the same about the Carcano M91 and Russian 1895 Trench. Both of those rifles would see a good bit more use if their sights would go back to center a few tenths of a second prior to the next shot being ready to fire.

Then use the Lebell.

I found sights that work well in real life doesnt translate well in games. Your in game firer will always have the perfect hold, cheek weld and eye relief ( nor fumble a mag :D ).
Back in BF4 the industry leading Eotechs (Holo in game) were inferior to the cheap Chinese aliexpress red dot. The Enfields thick diopter and a small aperture would make it easier to achieve proper eye relief and would be easier to zero precisely. The sights on the 1907 SLi detest in game but would be great on a scrub gun.

....that leads me to wonder...did shooters in WW1 train to fire with both eyes open??
