Is there a good method to drift Ishy Enfield front sights?

    Mine shoots about 4 feet to the left.:rolleyes: Pretty good groups, though, judging from my informal shooting. It looks like if I drift the sight as far as it needs to be it would be resting against the sight guards. Do I need to remove the stocks and the guards to get to the sight? Is there a way to move the rear sight? I couldn't find one.

    Mine has the standard, non-peep rear sight on a graduated ramp thing.

    Another dumb question... how do I field strip this thing? (I can get the bolt out and apart, but how do I get the stocks off?) Is there a manual available online anywhere?

    Thanks!:cool:

    Check surplusrifle.com, I believe there's a link on the left sidebar to the #1 Mk3 Enfield, takedown is basically identical

    Many of the #1 Enfields have a windage-adjustable rear sight, don't know about the Ishy.

    Only way I know to drift the front sight is to pull the screw that runs horizontally in the forend cap, then remove the screw onthe bottom. That lets you remove the cap and you can then drift the sight over.
