    K31 or maybe M39 to make things interesting.

    Great turnout yesterday, by the way.

    Took my ARbomination to the range before a club meeting this week. Figured out why my score tanked in rapids and then offhand. POI shifted almost 3 MOA to the right, happened during rapids. I think front sight shifted, and I will fix and try again once I cook up some loads. Clamp on gas block / front sight combo.

    You can always use loctite 609!
    Also if tour gas block is parked or melonite loctite does not like to cure on coated metals. Clean the shit out of the threads. Use the loctite primer and the blue loctite. Should never move by itself again.
    If it does that 609 bearing race retainer loctite will hold it!!!! Apply to barrel and gas block.

    So I think I will run my N0.4 enfield in the vintage match.
    Since I cant seem to find someone to make a Rx lens for my Randolph Ranger LE frames I wont bother shooting a notch rear sighted rifle.
    I have the new sights to test out on the Enfield and I might do a little BJ weld work on the rear aperture to get it down to .050" ish

    Absolutely! Newcomers / newbs are pretty common and welcomed.

    There are club match M1's, ammo available for sale, club mats, shooting jackets, etc. Be there on time for a 'clinic' and you will get some good instruction. If you have your own M1, be sure to have the correct sling for the match. FYI, club rifles prepped by a pro and are tack drivers.

    Yes, IIRC club rule is 15yrs old
    Other caveat : if range officer feels your unsafe you will be pulled from the line.

    The entire premise of the cmp is to get new shooters on the line and learn fundamentals of marksmenship.
    So come on down and see how the Nationals look like on a small scale. Learn to shoot a M1, score targets and exchange some friendly banter.

    1917 might actually be the most popular rifle for the Vintage event. Certainly one of the most popular...

    Okay. Hope to see and meet you all that weekend. Just scored some of TS's Winchester M2 and I will bring that to shoot.
    Will try and practice some before then. I am somewhat hobbled by my back issues and I hope that goes well. Offhand is (how
    should I say it...not so hot.) Might need to help me off the ground after prone. (Old truck mechanic:eek:)

    bottom group is 6 oclock hold Top group is Center Hold.
    This gun and ammo are just out of 10 ring accuracy for the 200 yard SR but I dont have another bolt gun with aperture rear sight. Im not going to waste ammo shooting rear notch sights, unless I score a lens.

    [​IMG]
    so first test run with the 3D front sight from Pastera working well so far. Tested at 25 yards and have a point of aim/point of impact. I need the group center to be about .80" higher than point of aim for a 200 yard zero CENTER HOLD... Now if I want a 6 oclock hold I need to add 3 min or about .78" more to my .80" I need for the center hold 200 yard zero....make sense? Soooo my front sight needs to come down
    Sight radius for No.4 is 28.74" 28.74" sight radius x 1.58" needed correction = 45.41 divide by distance in Inches 25yd/900" = .050" So I need to lower my front sight .050"
