Hay BigBill: I have a Chinaman's SKS with a front sight problem like that but mine came with one of those red plastic twist it sight adjusters. Mine shot low and I automatically raised the rear sight. A couple of boxes of ammo later I said 'Duh', why don't I just lower the front sight -uh huh, duh? It worked for me. I have a couple of those little beauts - one is an old bring back with pits in the chamber - shoots S&B steel case very well. The other is a true Chinama's SKS - unlined bore and all. But, they're fun. How ya been????? Mikey here.
