    Maltby No4 Mk1 Foresight element size ?

    Afternoon all,

    Long story short, I had an issue with the forend of my Maltby, discovered the night before heading off to the range, glued and repaired, the old girl is printing very good groups again, unfortunately though they are 3 inches high at 100yds.

    So, not having any spare foresight elements (never needed them) I ordered a NOS pack of 9 from the ever helpful and highly recommended John at DS solutions

    No4 Foresight Blade Set, Complete (9 Blades).

    All F marked, so I would assume Fazakerley manufacture ...

    Anyway, I currently have a .015 mounted (shooting PPU 174gr BT) and like I say 3 inches high a 100yds.

    Thoughts on which foresight to try first greatly appreciated chaps so I don't have to waste too much ammo getting back on target...

    Thanks Doug, lots of info there, I just need to get my head around it all now...

    From Jay Currah's "Each change of foresight to the next size, up or down, will change the MPI, up or down, 1/2 inch at 25 yards and 2 inches at 100 yards."

    That's what I've been after Doug Something an idiot like me can easily grasp!
