Great target Nevins. Thanks for posting. Looks like 99-5X. You see it so? Putting the peep on the WW A3-03 was a master stroke for the Army. How you you think the thin 03 front sight compares to the M14 width? I’m not sure as the front post on my M1A is just about the same as the black bull. Whether thats better for alignment, I don’t know .
I'm a big fan of the thicker front sight posts. I could see that I was shooting a little to the left on the group, but with how thin the blade is it can be tough to do a windage hold using such a thin blade. On the thicker ones its easier to use the sides of the front sight post for corrections like that. Overall ive been really happy with a barrel from 43, I assume the rifle was a post war refurb and works great.

Best front sight post I can think of is the Finn M39. Don't like the notch sights in general, but that has a great post.
