Even though a Swede or K31 may be more accurate, I still shoot better with my A3 and my M1903 with it's USMC sights front and rear due to the sights alone.

I hear you; this reason is why I now only have FSR M96's with a rear diopter - and my K31's have either a St. Marie scope mount with a Weaver K4, or a Swiss Products diopter.
