    Sighting issue

    Picked up another Garand and it is in very good shape but shoots about a foot low at 25 yards with the rear sight adjusted to the extreme high position. The fellow I got it from bought it a couple of decades ago and never shot it. It appears to have been re-arsenaled at some point as there was no wear on the finish from cycling the action. I don't know the history of the rifle before that. Any ideas on how to remedy this? Is there any other adjustment in the rear sight to be made or is this maybe an incorrect front sight size?

    File down the front sight.

      Yeah, figured that would be the fix. Thanks!

        I have a Garand that shoots a foot high at 100 yd; with the rear sight bottomed out. Nothing I tried with fore-end tension and bedding seemed to make any difference. I built up the front sight with J&B Weld and fixed it that way.
        The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
        The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.
