A bore sight is essentially a calibration tool that assists shooters in aligning the sighting system of their firearm with its barrel, ensuring the point of aim is congruent with the point of impact. Types of bore sights vary, including laser, magnetic, and optical models, each serving the same fundamental purpose but with unique features catering to different preferences and firearm models. Utilizing a bore sight is the first step in fine-tuning your firearm, a critical procedure before hitting the range for live-fire adjustments.

Do Bore Sights Work?

Skepticism often surrounds the effectiveness of bore sighting, with questions on its accuracy and reliability. Drawing from my experience and the collective feedback from the shooting community, bore sights significantly streamline the sighting-in process. While not a substitute for live-fire adjustments, they provide a reliable preliminary alignment, reducing the ammunition and time needed on the range. Industry experts and seasoned shooters alike vouch for bore sighting as an essential step in the firearm setup process.

Benefits of Using a Bore Sight

The advantages of employing a bore sight extend beyond mere convenience. By providing an initial alignment of the sight or scope with the barrel, bore sights save valuable ammunition and time. This is particularly beneficial for those sighting in new rifles or after installing a new optic. Furthermore, it enhances the shooter's confidence in their firearm's accuracy, allowing for a more focused and effective live-fire session.

Bore Sighting and Shooting Accuracy

Accuracy in shooting is not just about skill but also about the precision of your equipment. Bore sighting lays the foundation for fine-tuning your firearm's accuracy. It ensures that when you make those adjustments during live fire, you're starting from a point of near accuracy, reducing the rounds needed to achieve perfect alignment. The importance of meticulous adjustments post-bore sighting cannot be overstated, as it refines the sight picture and ensures the bullet's point of impact aligns with your aim.

Choosing the Right Bore Sight

Selecting an appropriate bore sight involves considering your firearm type and specific needs. Laser bore sights offer visibility and ease of use, making them popular among shooters. Magnetic models, on the other hand, boast simplicity and versatility across different firearms. When selecting a bore sight, consider factors such as compatibility, ease of use, and the type of shooting you'll be doing. Feyachi often provides a range of options, catering to various preferences and requirements.


Can bore sighting be used for firearms and sights?

Yes, bore sighting can be applied to virtually any firearm and sight combination, with specific bore sights designed for different firearm types.

Does bore sighting eliminate the need for live-fire sighting-in?

While bore sighting significantly reduces the need for extensive live-fire adjustments, it does not eliminate the necessity. Live fire is essential for fine-tuning.

Safety tips when using a bore sight?

Always ensure your firearm is unloaded and pointed in a safe direction when inserting or removing a bore sight. Follow all standard firearm safety protocols.
