View Full Version : WTB High replacement sight for Spanish Muuser 1916

I read somewhere about replacing the front sight on the 1916 Spanish Mauser so that you could adjust it to shoot point of aim at 100m instead of the 300m as issued, but I have not been able to find out who sells them. Does anyone know where to find it? Thanks for the help.

Brownells sells them, it is a tall replacement front sight that you can file down to fit precisely to your rifle. I installed one on my spanish mauser and it works fine. Getting the old sight off and fitting/installing the new one is a pain though, took a fair amount of work to do and a couple of trips to the range to get it all lined up right again (the original front sight holder/support has a tendency to rotate left or right around the barrel unless it is lock-tite'd in in pretty firmly).

Once you do have it all set up you can shoot to point of impact quite well.

Good luck.
