Re: yugo shooting high

I did check with my calipers and the old sight was 5.1mm and the new one was 6.9mm. I had thought I got one tall enough that I thought I might have to file down some, but apparently not. Groups also got a little tighter that I contribute to being a square post instead of the inverted 'V' style.

Re: yugo shooting high

There are many factors that come into play as to why a rifle shoots high. Has the rifle been dropped on it's front sight and the soldier/armored removed the bend or crushed portion of the sight? Any material removed from the top of the "barley-corn" front sight will cause it to shoot high. What bul...

Have you thought about a shooting vest or jacket with a recoil pad in it? I have thought about it and probably...

Re: yugo shooting high

shooting 54 yugo surplus at 25 yards it was shooting between 3 and 3.5 inches high. At 50 yards it was about 10-11 inches high. Shooting 49 yugo surplus, it was 7 inches high at 50 yards. 49 also had a much tighter group at 50 yards.

I have also seen Liberty tree has German tall sights. Numrich gun parts has 5 different Swedish front sights from 4.5mm to 7...
