    My carbine shoots about 10 inches high at 100 yards with the sight at the 100 yard setting. It's the stamped adjustable rear sight.

    What's the best way to get it shooting to the sights? I was thinking of taking it to the smith and getting him to build up the front sight with a dab of weld, then filing it down to get to poi. Is there a do it yourself way?

    Your Carbine front sight may have been filed down, not uncommon.

    Measure the flat on top of the sight post. Standard is .100. If yours is somewhat larger than this your sight has been lowered.

    Pick up a new front sight at a gun show. They are easy to change out.

    If your sight hasn't been filed down, I don't know that higher than standard Carbine sights were made.
