Another term is "hard sights" That's military lingo. In the U.S military Everyone in my family as well as every rep from Colt, S&W, benelli and Beretta know the term hard sights, because many of them were in the military at one time.

"The M-16A2 incorporates improvements in iron sight, pistol grip, stock and overall combat effectiveness."

And..?

Plenty of the old fellows who do the group shoots at my range have done their service. People from the county sheriff's department and local Coast Guard base go there to do qualifications. I have never once heard them complain about the term 'iron sight' - but I'll be sure to ask the next time I see them.


---QUOTATION---
Here's a bit of sarcasm for you. The people who manufacturer, distribute and represent firearms know less than you do. You're all experts because you know some 1950's slang.
---END QUOTATION---


The only person pretending to have special insights into firearm nomenclature is you. The rest of us seem to be perfectly happy with the same language which the industry itself widely uses - or have you never tried, say, Googling the phrase? This is not on the level of knowing the difference between a magazine and a clip.


---QUOTATION---
Why is it so hard to believe I worked in gun distribution? I worked there for about six years. Law enforcments distribution contracts. Limited commercial sales. Private complex located within an industrical avenue only know to government employees. My grandfather use to be one of the gunsmiths and I was one of the armorers as well as sale reps.

---QUOTATION---
Wikipedia's information is about as reliable as a slingshot during a tornado. Misdirection. It's really full of nothing but generic information that is closer to myth than fact. But if you're naive... as far as you know... it's true.
---END QUOTATION---


Then I suggest you write to Brownells posthaste and insist that they stop using Wikipedia.


---QUOTATION---
Here's another one. Many smooth bores don't have post to post sights. They just have a bead made out of aluminum, plastic or brass. So it's called a bead sight. Why just a bead? Because a smooth bore that's purposed to fire nothing but shot doesn't apertures. But I'm sure many of you would call it an iron sight oppossed to a bead sight.
---END QUOTATION---


I would think anyone who has played the game to which this forum is dedicated knows what a shotgun bead looks like and how it differs from rifle and pistol sights.


---QUOTATION---
Maybe it's just an Ohio thing or a gun industry specific thing, because only novices call the sights iron sights. I've never used guns with or around ametures. I've only used them with in around military, ex-military, police and professionals who exposition guns for the manufacturers to their potential customers.

---QUOTATION---
I just notice some of you LOVE to say "iron sight" in every topic like you know something someone else doesn't. As if it's actually necessary for someone to use that term to refer to the "open/hard" sights But it's just nothing other than old slang that's literal, because at one time they were literally iron.
---END QUOTATION---


Again, the only one pretending to have special knowledge is you.


---QUOTATION---
Hell I have some Sith & Wesson revolvers that were made in the 1960's, they belonged to my mother. Both have open adjustable sight that are made of hard plastic. The old model 10 I had DID have iron sights. The barrel was blued iron and the sight was a simple open sight that wasn't even fixed, it was forged into the barrel. So it was an "irion sight"
---END QUOTATION---


I find it tremendously funny that you say you worked as an armorer at a secret location and yet don't know what the barrel of one of the world's most popular handguns is made of.

And in case any of the spectators still haven't clicked it, http://lonelymachines.org/mall-ninjas/
