These handsome sights are based on those found on gentlemen’s sporting bows in the 16th century. The original sights were designed to fall after every shot, to make way for whatever spanning machine the bow was designed for. Our sights don’t fall or fold. Instead they unscrew from their mounting plate so they can be remove for greater security. The Renaissance sight is no more accurate than the basic sight, but it’s definitely prettier, made of blued steel and polished brass, with an inlet mounting plate. Note that outside of heavy siege machines, sights were not at all common on medieval (pre sixteenth century) bows.
