They do. And the degree of how well they work is relative to how high the ambient light level is. The more light on an object the better the eye can see it. I wear reading glasses to be able to read news print in a newspaper. In bright sunlight I can take off my glasses and read newsprint perfectly. So a fussy front sight will sharpen right up in bright sun and even more with the extra reflected light, for example.

The worse your eyes are, the better the reflective sight works. But it even helps those with perfect eyesight.

Adding my recent acquisition to King thread. Super target, 38/44 outdoorsman, #4087x shipped March 1932. this came with a trigger shoe and some late S&W targets. Found some Sanderson's (I think) at local gun show that are at least more period correct.

Also picked up a 1940 win mod 71 and added a King red bead reflector base sight. I got so excited about finding a King sight, I bought it without really looking at it. Assumed it was for a revolver, but it turned out to be for a Mod 70, 71 or 54 win.
