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.

M96 front sight height

#1 Post by Milsurpa » Sun Nov 26, 2017 8:26 am

I shot my latest swede acquisition a couple of days ago. It's a 1917 CG M96. It shot way high at 50yds. I know that some folks have changed out their front sight post in order to zero at 100yds. I found a source for an after market sight marked 3.5. Is this the one I need to get? I just don't want to get one so tall that it requires too much filing but of course I don't want to get one too short. Tell me what worked for you.

Most find that at 100 yards the front sight should be between +1.5 to +2.0. provided you have the military ladder type rear sight. Get a +2.0 and a very sharp file.

This might be of interest to you. I did my own experiment and recorded the results.

I will have to check and see which one I got, but it is too tall but I just made adjustments to the rear sight to compensate
