    Does anyone know the current regulations in relation to variable rear dioptre sights ? ie the ones made by Anschutz that can adjust to +3

    I guess your best bet would be to check the rules on the ISSF web site, if you have a few hours...

    As far as I know you can't have any magnification on the sights. All you can do is change the rear iris size or the front foresight ring size and thickness. Maybe wrong but it's the reason I use shooting glasses.

    They can be used for practice and informal shooting but not competition
