    Looking to shoot in milsurp matches and my rifle's front sight is too low to shoot on target at 200 yards. Any place I can get a front sight that is taller that I can file down to be on target once my load is developed? I need something that stays with the original nature of the gun so I'm within the rules for the milsurp bolt action high power rules.

    Thanks.

    I would check Brownells or give Doug Bowser a call.

    Thought about doing that but was going to see if he chimes in here. But, haven't seen him on the board much lately.

    The M96 and M38 sights are different so be sure to get the right one. Marty’s reference is great for one to file down. What height is market on the side of your existing sight and how much do you need to come down? I might have or that will work.

    I'll have to look. Not sure yet as I haven't settled on a load. I'll have to do that first before I know which sight. Trying to get to the range this weekend to text some loads.
