    New CMP Service Grade SA

    Great gun, made in 1943 and rebuilt in 1946. Nothing "original," but it is all SA except the wood which is the new walnut CMP stock. No issues with the rifle, it goes bang, but sight in is the problem. Per SOP, up 8 clicks from the bottom should put you close at 20 yards. Not so, to get close to zero requires 25 clicks... The groups are tight, the barrel and crown look to be ok and the CMP rated the throat and muzzle are at 2.0.

    If this were your gun, what would you do?

    25 clicks up at 20 yds????? I would look at the front sight height

      Try filing the front sight blade down a few strokes at a time until you have it where you want it. The 8 clicks up thing is not chiseled in stone. Every rifle is different. My personal M1 rifles range from zero to 6 clicks up to be on target at 100 yards. Also, at only 20 yards, the bullets haven't had time to stabilize yet. Remember, the rifle is designed for making long-distance calls, not local calls.
