carl Gustaff 63

I have this honey of a Swedish Mauser with Elite diopter sites....punches 3/4 inch groups open sighted at 200 yards! Question...In order to shoot 300+ yards open sited I need a diiferent insert in the front globe...these are competition sights on the gun but the front insert is TOO heavy and blocks too much light....I tried Brownells/midway and am unable to find the correct front inserts....any suggestions........ps...if anyone is looking for perhaps the greatest sniper rifle in 6.5 x 55 I defy anyone to beat this one......29"floated barrell and glassed action on a wanut ambidextrous stock with a target trigger and olympic caliber sights...all for $700 hand select 7 years ago...if you can find one....BUY IT.......thanks.....

Thanks for the link........I rave about my CG63.......I had it hand selected and it has a pristine stock.......The gun was made in 1917 but was never fired....redone for the swedish military in 1972 with the upgrades .....again I believe it was never used....it has a perfect bore......It and I sent a fellow shooter home grumbling at the range when his scoped gun and handloads could'nt compete with this beauty......maybe he was mad because I told him the gun was not for sale! This and my Schmidt and Reubin are sick accurate...those Swedes/Fins and Chechs can really turn out a piece a century ago....the Germans did well too but their prices reflect that. These european guns are the true sleepers in the old time firearms industry......did I mention that CG63 shoots lass than 1/2 MOA with Wolf Gold ammo....$16/box....yeah baby..............
