I agree. I hate the aiming system on BF2 I have the cross hair on the guy and the bullets are flying outside the recticle. What the fuck?

Arisaka and how do i amaze you? In BF2 you move (while zoomed in), the sights remain aligned, and suddenly the gun shoots way OUTSIDE the inherent inaccuracy circle, without you knowing that the weapon has become inaccurate (or how much). In real life you spend time realigning the sights again, so that you can be sure of where the bullets go.

Ah, now I understand what your saying. Sorry, I misunderstood what you were saying, you are correct, it does take some time to adjust. Not only does your ironsights now move, but On most weapons they have a meter ironsight. Meters are, I think about 18 inches. I might be incorrect though. If you press a little button on this it will shift the meters up or down. If your looking at a target far away, you will want to put it at the highest it goes (10 on a k98). For you to allign your ironsights, you will have to lift your gun up more so the bullet will naturally drop onto your target.

It would be interesting to have this system, it basicly means you can snipe some-one if you time it right, couldnt you?

that's ok :)

exactly. without that meter adjustment the viking-jahre-wide sight would not only cover your target horizontally, but also vertically when engaging at long ranges, because it's set at 200m (or whatever).

18 inches = 18 x 0,0254(m/inch) = 0,46m. 1m / 0.305(m/ft) = 3,29ft. The numbers on the K98 and MG34/42 are in hundred meters. (10 = 10 x 100m = 1000m = far away, as you said. Normally one wouldn't use this setting for long engagements, but rather 6, vs the normal 3-4 according to the research on which the StG was based on.)

Raptor: it basically means that you can actually take bullet drop into consideration, instead of just guessing (assuming that you're good at estimating distances).

Well, I have fired my K98 at a target 500 meters away. I had my sights adjusted about 7, it hit spot on. I could punch a nail in with that thing. Also, there is a huge difference between a k98 and a Stg44, one the Stg44 only goes to 6 on its meters (im pretty sure thats as far). An Mg42 CAN fire as far as a k98, but with a huge amount of decreased accuracy since its a fully automatic machine gun. Ive fired an MG42 before, at 500 meters (using bursts) it took me a good 8 seconds to hit a figure of a person, and the cause isnt because im not good with one. But because its innacurate.

The inherent inaccuracy/deviation in gun and sights? or perhaps experience with your own gun? :)

Also, there is a huge difference between a k98 and a Stg44, one the Stg44 only goes to 6 on its meters (im pretty sure thats as far).

That's only logical. The StG was based on research saying that troops rarely fought beyond 300-400m. The StG was designed to operate in this area, thus they accepted the compromise about lesser recoil at the expense of power (7.92x33 vs 7.92x57 if anyone in here still don't know).

An Mg42 CAN fire as far as a k98, but with a huge amount of decreased accuracy since its a fully automatic machine gun.

I'm sure that's an oversimplification. It's inaccurate because of trade-offs made in the design, such as it was made to fire fast (open bolt, i believe, although i'm no expert in such matters). Also i've heard alot here about it being designed with some spread,although i haven't read that in books myself.

Ive fired an MG42 before, at 500 meters (using bursts) it took me a good 8 seconds to hit a figure of a person, and the cause isnt because im not good with one. But because its innacurate.

Here there are also tons of factores that come into play, and i'm sure you can recite as many as i can, and more. I'm also assuming that you fired in LMG-mode, and not from a lafette.
