Adam,
If you're a center mass holder, I recommend getting a bill bentz front sight blade. Its a reproduction of the original USMC sight blade. Its .100 thick and is angled backwards to reduce glare. They are kinda expensive but in my opinion a game changer

You are now allowed to use a "re-activated" drill rifle. I have been using my
M1903 A3 (former drill rifle) for 3 years in GSM Matches, most recently at Talladega in January, 2021.

+1 on that. I use his sight, and have shot several Bronze, and 1 Silver score.

Does the rear sight "U" have to be modified to use the wider USMC blade?


Anyone making reproduction PJ O'Hare 1903 rear sight micrometers?


Thanks

I use the wide blade on my 03A3. I would recommend using the aperture for target shooting with the `03, not the battle sight. You wouldn't need any modifications to the either rear sight if you change the front blade.

A company called Ray - Vin used to make a good copy of the PJ O'Hare micrometer, but I don't think they are around anymore. I have two originals and I used to have one made by a different maker. If the PJs are priced too high, perhaps seeking one of the "off brands" might be more cost effect. They do they same thing.

Thanks, guys.

I've heard of the Ray Vin sight micrometer, but do not believe they are being made anymore. The originals are extremely hard to find, and I'm not familiar with any other "off brands".

Here is a PJ O'Hare, for about as good a price, as you will find...https://www.ebay.com/itm/P-J-OHARE-M...0AAOSw4cdgNo2C

May have been mistaken about other brands. I know I have seen other styles, than the most familiar one. Here is an earlier style PJ O'Hare, Available: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-The...IAAOSwALxgPYca

Here is one that you can make an offer on: https://www.ebay.com/itm/P-J-OHare-1...AAAOSwCWRgLUKm

And here is another of the different style: https://www.ebay.com/itm/PJ-O-Hare-1...sAAOSw-npgPSQw

Hey! Here is another available. They can be found. If you want one, don't wait for prices to come down: https://www.gunsinternational.com/gu...n_id=101535900
