    Re: Front Sight calculator

    Determine the height of your front sight in relation to the centerline of the bore. Do the same with your rear sight (even on the reciever.) If they are approx. the same you will be in the ballpark usually.. I posted a method for deteriming those figures in an earlier post but it seems that was confusing also. You might check it out however, hopefully it will work for you!

    Thanks!!!
