Aim correctors

Things a soldier would carry other than firearms, ammo, or uniforms. Meaning equipment such as ammo pouches, bayonets, holsters, oil cans, cleaning equipment, etc.

Aim correctors

Postby Woftam » Wed Aug 11, 2010 5:34 pm

Came across one for sale on Ebay. Allegedly for the .310 Cadet. Have one for the No1 and have seen them for the No4 & 5. Presumably they didn't originate with the No1 but have not heard of them for the Cadet.
Were any in fact made for the Cadet ? The one I saw clipped on from the bottom rather than ferom the top so obviously not for the No1.

I haven't come across that one before Graeme,, do you have a photo of it?

HARC have a interesting page on aim correctors/devices but nothing on a Cadet attachment.

That link to the aim correctors is interesting. Amazing the lengths a military organization will go to in the belief their recruits are seriously stupid and they can correct the problem with the aid of mechanical devices, and do this while trainees shoot at a stationary target from a foxhole on a rifle range. On the other hand, looks like some contractors were smart enough to capitalize on this particular fact of life.

And here was me thinking that a lot of them were when it came to range time :shock: Maybe my memory isn't what it used to be :loco: :loco:

Interestingly enough the Brit version of the Claymore doesn't carry that inscription.
