Can these sights be changed to adjustable using the original rear dovetail ? If yes, does the front need to go as well ?Changing Springfield sights Img_2029

I am picking up on this thread since I am in the same boat.  What front sight height would work with this rear?  

I fit one on my Mil Spec and at 25 yards it groups a 'little' low.  Sight all the way up, holding at 6 o'clock.

Measure your front sight then go get one lower by say .020 -  .030

Changing Springfield sights Empty sight correction

Post by 8eightring 8/7/2021, 12:41 pm

Correcting Sight Height
If your rifle or pistol is shooting high or low, there is a formula you can use to determine what the correct height for your sight should be.

Terms
Amount of Error: Measure in inches the distance from the bullseye to your shot.
Sight Radius: Distance in inches from the front sight to the rear sight. *
Distance to Target: The distance in inches from your shooting position to the target.

Note: Be sure that your rear sight is at its mid-point before you shoot.

Formula




Amount of Error X Sight Radius
= Sight Correction Needed
Distance to Target
If you are shooting low, you would replace your front sight with a lower sight, and conversely, if you were shooting high, then you would replace your front sight with a higher sight. Add or subtract the number of thousandths needed to the actual height of your sight and you will have the correct height of the replacement sight.

Example
At 100 yards, your shot is 6" low and the distance between your front and rear sight is 19.5".




6 X 19.5
= .0325
3600
Since you are shooting low, you would need to lower your front sight by .032".
