    Well done how did the join go pretty good judging by the result allowing for a PWF its grouping pretty good once you get the taller blade in you will have a more defined hold at 6 o'clock on the bull hard to get a good POI when your aiming off the bull rather than sitting the ball on top of the blade.

    Spot on, Cinders. Offset aiming is useful to actually get some shots on paper (and save the target frame!) and demonstrate that the rifle is functional. But not for demonstrating its potential accuracy.

    Hunter: "The front sight blade is now roughly centered in the base, where it had been previously drifted almost all the way out and over to the left" shows that the warped stock had indeed been bending the barrel. The correction of the woodwork has been successful. Congratulations! If, with an appropriate front blade, the rifle can then put everything within the "9", then it is definitely OK.

    I feel the need to say this for anyone that may want to follow suit. Experience tells me the forend still isnít straight along its length. Itís probably just contacting somewhere else, but beyond all the technicalities though.
    Itís a little disappointing to see people applauding the butchering of an intact Milsurp stock to gain a modicum of accuracy. The M1917 wasnít designed to be a target rifle.
    Itís not even about value, letís face, youíre not putting your kids through college off your collection ďmaybe Badger can....Ē
    Itís about the history, IMHO thatís been ruined for no good reason.
    Rant over,,,cheers.
