How to Measure front sight heights on your rifle
Follow some expert gunsmiths at Brownells as they walk you through simple procedures for customizing, repairing, and maintaining your firearms. This weapons video tutorial will teach you how to measure front sight heights on your rifle.
Brownells shows you the step-by-step process to correctly measuring your front sights for your rifle using your work bench. This is handy for front and rear sight height calculations for a gun that's never had sights put on before. You only have one continuing line on any firearm, like a pistol, handgun, rifle or shotgun, and that's the bore line. You need to establish what size and what type of front sight you need in accordance with the rear sight. With a little math, it's no problem.
