A look at the revolutionary Mansfield Pistol Sight’s U.S. Patent

Based upon the overwhelming response, Sarasota businessman Michael Mansfield’s revolutionary pistol sight will get a warm reception when it’s ready.

A story published last week revealed Mansfield’s new sight, which uses four half-circles rather than the traditional three-dots.

Mansfield has several working prototypes for now. The dots on the prototypes were painted with nail polish, and he was looking for the right fabricator to machine the finished products out of steel. Since the story was published, two firms have stepped up.

Interest in his idea is high.

One kind reader sent a copy of Mansfield’s patent for the new sight.

For gun-techy folks, like myself, the patent is an interesting read.

Note, Mansfield patented more than just circles. He’s also incorporated diamonds, ovals, triangles and squares into his revolutionary design.

We will continue to document Mr. Mansfield’s journey from idea to production.
