Default Extra tall 03A3 front sight

Looking for an extra tall 03A3 front sight blade. Already have an A marked sight and isn't tall enough. I would prefer super tall that I can file down.

Thanks!

With patience and a set of files, etc. You can make one. At my age, an unfortunately short on patience.....

I have one that is unmarked but it measures .550 from top to bottom. I will take $10.00 shipped for it.

Ripper. Thanks, but pretty sure I will need taller than that. With my A marked sight at .537, I have to hold at the bottom of the target for 200 yards with the rear sight all the way down.

Sounds like you may need to check stock fit
Lapriester can steer you in the right direction.
Good luck.

Yes! And so are USMC front and rear sights. On an M1903 that means a wider front sight blade and larger rear aperture in the slide. On an A3 a wider front sight blade.

Bill Bentz makes reproduction front and rear USMC sights and will build a front A3 sight to your specific height specs. He also produces a reproduction USMC sight hood. All of his stuff is high [email protected]
