    Your rear sight, a Lyman 48, does not go to 125 yards. With a 24" barrel the "125" is the number of MOA that the sight moves and I do not believe that the entire 125 is usable.

    It looks to me as if the front sight assembly is for a M1903 not an 03A3/03A4. Originally the rifle would have had no front sight.

    In my opinion the Remington 700 ADL at that price is a good buy. Jack O’Connor (an old time gun writer) believed that the 270 Winchester was one of the best rounds ever developed.
