Re:Retiflector sight[edit]

I reverted your addition to the article because it was unreferenced as to whether it was a unique type. "a diagonal reflector plate between the reticle and a collimating mirror" sounds like optical deviation of the reticle to supply a target lead. Many sights did this (see Gyro gunsight) but that does not make them a different type of reflector sight, the sight itself was the basic beam splitter sight. Don't let the revert stop your editing... its just a major policy of Wikipedia that you need to cite someone else's book, article, or some other source, not your own personal knowledge. It is also Wikipedia policy that there are no "hard" rules, personal knowledge can be fine, especially if you can explain the concept to some of us "denser" editors ;) You can note sources, add information to the aircraft sub-section, or add images, add to the talk page, or post back to this message if you have questions. Happy editing. Fountains of Bryn Mawr (talk) 21:40, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
