so I used some MS1 a sort of gorilla snot epoxy in a tube to fix a crude rear sight off a norinco 7.62x39mm onto rear of barrel...seems to be firm enough not to go any where in a hurry...thought about braising but worried the Chinesium metal of sight may melt first....
tried them today and as expected rather high....10inches hig at 35 yards...so usable but not ideal....will try some small brass screws in bead hole and see if can find one to fit..that will give me lower point of impact...and maybe also carefully file groove lower in rear sight....
duplex load...4grns AR2219 under 50 grns HRBP works great,good solid push and much cleaner than straight HRBP....

update....metal grub screw out of scope rings that drove me nuts,I actually got mate to take scope out of them before I took angle grinder to them.... fitted into bead hole with careful work...3/4 turn forward,half turn back over n over till it had recut thread and was at correct depth (funnily enough the bead was threaded short and had cavity in barrel under it) gave me 7mm of elevation up front which put impacts pretty much bang on at 50 yards...was 6-8" left but the rear sight has windage and moved across made the correct amount of drift...seems to be minute of coffee cup now.....and thats a regular coffee cup not huge one like SOME folks on here use....and thats OK as my tea cup holds 750mls LOL.
now to eat some mutton from in freezer to make room so Im allowed to go hunting again LOL
