I believe it contains some very good information, so I'm passing it along with FULL CREDIT to the NSSF as the original authors.  ***** With gift-buying season upon us, it’s natural for gun owners who enjoy target shooting, hunting, collecting or just plain plinking to want to share their enjoyment of firearms with others.

When considering replacement of the iron sights on your pistol or rifle, there are some measurements differences you must be aware of to prevent frustrating mistakes when placing orders.  Likewise, when adjusting iron sights, understanding which direction to move front and rear sights to achieve the desired aim point can be confusing to new and seasoned shooters, alike. The first thing to understand is that sight height is measured differently on pistols than it is on rifles.
