Modified iconic repeating rifle with very large internal magazine. The aperture sight makes it easier to aim more precisely at medium ranges.
The Winfield M1873 Aperture was a minor improvement on the original Winfield M1873, one which with a small and simple change offered greatly enhanced accuracy. The aperture sight is simple in its construction, that being the addition of a small disk with a centered hole, known to some as an iris. This makes use of the eye's natural tendency in which it centers objects by allowing the foresight to be seen through the aperture.
