Good replacement iron sights for swede...

Picked up a m96 Swedish mauser a while back and have gotten around to shooting a couple groups with it. Best group is about 2 and a half inches at 100yds. I haven't gotten dies or brass yet so I used some federal gold medal match. I think I will be able to shrink the groups with practice, they are wider than they are tall and I believe I was jerking the trigger a bit. The only thing is that The sights are a bit lacking. Besides it shooting 6.5" high at 100, they just seem too wide. Any recommendations for a set of better sights that I do not have to permanently alter the rifle to attach?

Williams makes a sight that replaces without modification the existing rear sight. Here's a link at Brownells: http://www.brownells.com/rifle-parts...375-36731.aspx

Mojo sights are an option or a no gunmith scout scope mount from S&K mounts
