Can a Garand NM front sight & rear aperture be installed in the standard bases?

    I'm thinking about getting a NM front sight and the smaller 0.52 NM rear aperture for my M1 since it's only used for target shooting anyway. Can I install this in my existing sight base or do I need additional parts?

    If all you want is the smaller aperture and narrow front sight blade, then you only need to install those parts.

    If you want NM 1/2 minute windage adjustment, you need to replace the windage knob and rear sight base as well. To get 1/2 minute elevation adjustment, you need the special NM hooded aperture that turns 180 degrees.

    Yes, all I want is the smaller arpeture and narrower blade. The adjustment is no big deal for me.

    Thanks Jim, that saves me a bunch of money!
