I'd like to upgrade the rear sight on my shooter Garand and have one question. Does this rear sight fit into an existing assembly or do I need to replace that as well ?

Thanks

It will fit into either the NM/2A base or the standard GI base. Either way, it will probably need to be filed to fit. No other parts will need to be changed.

Hurry and go buy a March 31, 2008 Shotgun News while it is still on the news-stands.

There is more info on M-1 National Match sights & installing them then anyone really needs to know!

The aperture will fit in the standard sight base. You don't need to change anything else.

If the aperture doesn't lower enough you may need to file and angle on the other end so it has more room to travel down.
