I am looking for a replacement front sight for the O-3a3 and O-3. If I am not mistaken, the front sight on these rifles were made for 400yrds. I belive a sight was made to replace it for 200yrds.

Anyone know of this, and if so, where can I get a couple.....

THANKS!

Was just in my favorite gun shop today talking with the owner, who is in the process of reconditioning all of the 03/A3's for the VA Tech Rifle Team. When I was there today, he was in the process of rebuilding the rear sights and replacing front sight blades on the team's 03/A3s and I believe he told me he got the parts from CMP. He specializes in 03 and 03/A3 'smithing and his work is absolutely top notch.

If you'd like, I'll call him Monday and find out his supplier for you. He's going to be out of town tomorrow and Saturday so he won't be open again until Monday. Be glad to help out if I can.

No Problem - I promised his son I'd bring him a Harry Potter book on Monday, so I'll get all the info I can and email you back on Monday evening.

You are just looking for the sight blades, right? How about the pins?
