After waiting for many, many months I finally received the new sights for my Mosin Nagant M39.
Had some problems removing the tiny screws from the original open rear sight, but a little heat and the correct screw driver did the trick.
The only difference between the old and new front sight is that the new one is thinner.
What an improvement.
I even don't have to wear my glasses when using these sights.

Some pictures.

No problem Mario.


I bought these sights on gunboards.com.
Ordered them a long and I do mean very long time ago.
The demand is huge.

Here's a link to the thread called M39 9.5mm tall front and rear peeps sights.

http://forums.gunboards.com/showthread.php?127065-M39-9-5mm-tall-front-and-rear-peeps-sights&highlight=mg42

The seller is called Jason Lynch.
You have to send him an E-mail, not a PM.
His E-mailaddress is: iamrolln@yahoo.com
Price is $25.00 and $3.00 for shipping.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Martin

You got it Mario.
I will take my ML rifle to the range this weekend.
Next weekend will be my M39 weekend.
I will post a range report later that day.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Martin

Well I got the set for an M39 that had a dinged up rear notch. Just haven't gotten around to installing them. Sometimes life just gets in the way :-?
