Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Beautiful stock, especially for the 1943 year.
Why do you think the front sight is so canted?
Talk about shooting waaay left.

Images not showing - just a black box with a white X.
Is there a question ? (no text showing either)

Very strange. I got a link instead of an image. The link took me to photo bucket who discovered my ad-blocker.
Now I see the 2 images!

I can see the pictures today.
The front sight blade is 'just' within specification.

"Our acceptable zeroing standards state after zeroing, the blade of the foresight will overhang or be level with the edge of the foresight block. If the edge is inboard of the edge of the block, then it indicates that something is wrong with the rifle".

Initially, the rifle grouped on the left edge of a pistol target at 100 m and I had to push the FS left to center the group.
My 1943 rifle was FTR'ed in 1953 at Fazakerley, where it obviously got a new stock and barrel (NB : center bedding). Grouping with 140 SMK is OK.
