Does the Swiss word "Furter" describe both the fine windage/elevation and fine elevations sights only or does it apply to both fron and rear sights? Does the word come from the name "Furter Olten" which I believe was a Swiss target rifle designer? Any help would be great........thanks.

I was under the impression the "Furter" was a brand name for a after market sight for the K-31. This is a Furter sight corrector on my 34 K-31. Windage and elevation adjustment.



This is a Sahli corrector, elevation adjustment only.




Frank N. Furter was a character in The Rocky Horror Show.

Furter is a brand name of a family that had a gun store/factory in Olten CH. The store and name are still there just the current young and enthousiast owner has little to do with the original owners allthough he knows way much about them.
The original owner(s) made subcaliber devices, small bore rifles, match rifles, sights and way more...
