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.

Re: Target Rifles

I think I recognize that laminated stock. I had one like it. But on a .308 Remington 700.

Re: SMLE hitting high at 200

Sweat it to the top of the blade. cut off the head with a hacksaw or Dremel. Clean it up & blue the blade. You just made a new front sight that can be filed to fine tune & is ...

Re: SMLE hitting high at 200

It's going to vary with the bullet wight & other things. If I switch from a 150 to a 180 my 100yd POI goes up by 8"!
No the no4 sight is not interchangeable the dovetails are different.
Yo can do all sorts of bodges, but they'll always be a bodge, just go for the right sight.

Re: Interesting little goodie for the SMLE

Yes the red ones pop up from time to time, there's also a larger cone-shaped one & a smaller cylindrical one that occasionally show up. Unfortunately they are $pendy as they've become collectable.

Interesting little goodie for the SMLE

Does anyone know the backstory on these?
"Valvespout" was a well known maker of various oil cans, but how did AG Parker get involved? It will go nicely with the AG Parker 9W rear-sight though.
