One of the EAA's biggest problems was the hammer, which bit the shooter's hand if he tried to move up on the grip. The trigger also needed recontouring.
Today's iron sights ask the shooter to align the target on or just above a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle that includes the tops of the front and rear sight blades. The desired picture is one of a rectangle wider than taller that encloses two rectangular light bars evenly spaced underneath the desired point of impact. With its raised top strap the EAA Bounty Hunter comes closest to this modern design. The other two pistols combine the notch in their top straps with a thin front blade to challenge the eye to complete a triangle that features two slightly arched, rounded sides.
