Having spoken to several WWII Grenadiers back in the 1980's, very few ever used these sights. That is why so many are available on today's market. Mostly all removed them. The sight has an Ordnance history behind it, but it makes everything a lot more difficult. It was never an option when direct fire was the requirement with Anti Tank Rifle Grenades.
