Great stuff, Craig.

An M1A is on my short list of "must-haves." It will be mine...oh yes...it will be mine. That's a National Match, right?

Default 03 Battle Sight

TXnorton,

With the sight ladder down the zero of the battle sight is 547 yards.

If shooting 100 yards ensure you put the ladder up.

I learned the hard way.

Quite a few were made and issued before a problem was noticed. Later on they developed high temp gauges and the problem went away.
As I understand it they had the gauges but as a typical gubmint worker is wont to do they took the easy way and tried to eyeball it, which is a no-no.
