    Swedish Mauser Micrometer Rear Sight...

    So I’m considering trying to track down a micrometer rear sigh for my M96 long rifle... I understand that there are two types, the SM Sikte F-Ram and the SM Sikte AGJ. Can anyone verify which one is the correct rear sight for the M96?

    Side question, were these actually used on military rifles or only on target rifles?

    The SM backsight types were replacements, and used on civilian target rifles. Military rifles were not supposed to be altered, and thus the only acceptable micrometer backsight was the Västerös micrometer insert, which was a removable add-on for competition purposes, and not a replacement of the backsight leaf, i.e. not an alteration of the original rifle.* See Dana Jones "The Crown Jewels" P. 201-212.

    *The BDMP follows this interpretation.
