I installed a Lyman Model 66 peep sight in the factory drilled holes on my used Model 30 AS in 30/30. Initial range testing showed it hitting 7-8 inches high at 100 yards. I replaced the factory front sight with the Lyman .560 High bead but I am still hitting 5-6 inches high at 100 yards with the bridge of the receiver sight bottomed out to the top of the receiver. My understanding is that to move the point of impact DOWN either I need to raise the front sight higher or the rear sight lower.

Any suggestions would be appreciated since I am told that the new Lyman front sight is the allest available and I can not lower the rear sight any farther. Do I need some sort of after market ramp for the front sight?

I like silver blade front sights, and I have replaced the fronts on my receiver-sighted 336s with front sight blanks from Dixie Gun Works -- inexpensive , attractive, and easily filed in to whatever height you need and shape you prefer.
