I always remember FORS when sighting in any milsurp.
Front-Opposite; Rear-Same

I have made it standard practice to bring a hammer, a brass drift, and a file to the range when shooting a new milsurp. I have had to file down front sites on more than one occasion as people next to me ask- WTH.
Rarely have I ever found a milsurp that I did not need to site in. Yes I have made mistakes like you but chalk it up as learning.
One other interesting note in regards to milsurps involves the ammo IE: SMLE#4 used 174 mil ball ammo @ 2440 fps. As mil surp ammo is no longer around, it is common to shoot the easy to find domestic ammo 150gr @ 2600 fps, so naturally it will shoot high.
