pictures would show the modification much better than just trying to explain it in words. i am kind of curious to see how you did it myself.

ive never cleaned a gun with hot water will it rust? I usually would just use solvents and lube/oil but in this case I think I have to use water what lube should I use for the barrel? I dont have a siphon so ill probably use a turkey baster to squirt the cosmoline out

I am able to get a proper 'sight picture' with both of my Mosins; lucky perhaps. Shoots about an inch high at 100 yards. About what I'd want for a .30 caliber round.

I did see a suggestion somewhere to build the front blade 'up' with either plastic wire insulation or a soldered bead. I'd rather add material to the front sight than grind/file the rear sight

Water is best to dissolve the corrosive residue. The real honeymoon cleaning begins after. During which the bore will be thoroughly dehydrated, no water trapping.

The rear sight slider pictured here is angled against the base. This is where you file it off. Because the contact surface is small, it doesn't take much filing to round the angle off. The pictured rifle did not need it, it was spot on as bought. The one I had before was an M44 that shot a foot high at 60 without the bayonet.

Yes, in theory. This rifle is not a fast shooting target pistol. The notch is tiny, and the front post is narrow. A silver or brass bead, but especially wire insulation, will make the sight picture less precise. If you don't want to mess with the notch, the post has to be kept sharp and probably black. I suppose it can be done, just not so easily.

Here is my rear sight. Most of the deer I shoot are under 50 yards away. I need a rifle that is dead on at 30 to 75 yards. Even when I hunt fields and power lines I position my stand where 80% of the deer are going to come out or cross. I don't care if 20% of the deer slip by. I know I can't effectively cover a 250 acre field or a half mile of power line. Everything in life is a trade off. Letting some deer slip by so I can be where most of the deer are going to be is my hunting trade off.

Here is the sight picture I am talking about. Once windage has been corrected, this will get it done at 100 yards

I used the front sight tool, works very well easy to adjust at the range

Last, here is something funny I found about these sights:

[QUOTE=chloeshooter;1446138]I dig it about the windage. My concern was "adding material" to the front post.

For cleaning, just take the gun apart in about 3 minutes. All that is required is a screwdriver (or the bayonet). Then clean the metal parts separate from the wood. There are a great number of Youtube videos on the Mosin. Here is one that addresses the sticky bolt, which is widespread.
