English term or phrase: open sight
One type of problem that arises in conjunction with the use of rifles occurs when the stock is positioned against the rifleman’s shoulder resulting in the creation of an intermediate space between the user’s cheek and the stock.
This is an especially palpable problem when using riflescopes and similar sighting devices (other than open sights).

Explanation:
Open sights (also known as "mini reflex sights" and "mini red dots") take advantage of the fact that the reflector sight's only optical element, the optical window, doesn't need any housing at all. This configuration consists of a base with just the necessary reflective surface for collimating the reticle mounted on it. Due to their diminished profile, open sights do not usually accommodate filters and other accessory options typically supported by tube designs.
