I understand that after market front sights are available to bring the point of impact down. Does anyone know where to buy these?
Have you tried Brownells? Sounds like you need a taller front post. I have a SMLE No.1MKIII but the rear sight is the ladder type on the barrel not the receiver. You might measure your front post height and compare to the MKIII, maybe the MKIII sight is taller, or you can do as I did and put a scope on it. It made the rifle a real tack driver!
