Was at the range today, testing some of my recently bought handguns. The T91 was also aboard.

I used the same realoads, my long T38s like, 129grn Hornady SP bullet in front of 17grn of N110, nice soft load, no need for higher frontsights.



All shots went to the right, noticed, the frontsightblock is a little canted. Taht explains also the pounding marks on the left sight of the post, one of the former owners tried to move the sight to the right without success.

I will try also, but if nothing else works I need a new frontsight :shock:

Maybe I can get you pictures of the modifications on the 30-06 short rifle.

Meet a collector, who has such a beast :razz:

It seem, I will need a new frontsight for my carbine, the one on is stuck, wil not move. So milling it out and put a new one in is teh only solution :(

Front Sight

Postby riceone » Sat Jan 10, 2009 10:26 pm

Chris, I got the pictures, thanks. You did a good job of showing me the details of the cuts. I have a T99 in 30-06 that I just seat the bullets a little deeper and do not have to modify the magazine. Don't think you could do that with a T38. Chris you do know that the front sight on your rifle is held in place with a cross pin? It will drive out from the right side to the left. When you put another back on you will have to move the slot in the top of the barrel a bit so it will align. Roy

I do not wanrt to remove the front sight base(two pins) just the sightblade, that sits between the "ears". The sight blade just won't slide out, one of the former owners tried with violence and made it only worth.

I tried warming, rust spray etc, nothing worked, used even my lathe to built up enough pressure, nothing moves.

You told me some time back to mill the sightblade out, and that I will do, when I have found a replacement.

I have no mill, I can crudly do some milling with my lathe, but a sightblade is not doable for me that way :(

And I am not that good with a file too.
