    Chilean Mauser w/new aperture.

    Took the 1895 Chilean out for a quick turn at the range Wednesday early morning. I was having trouble picking up the sights with my old eyes so I installed a low light rear aperture. It has a little brass ring insert that picks up the light better. It works pretty good.

    Just one other person at the range way down at the other end.

    The new aperture.

    First 5 rounds. About the same results all morning. Still having a little trouble picking up the front sight, better now though.

    wow that little brass ring makes that really stand out!

    is that something you heard about somewhere?

    or something you came up with on your own?

    Looks very useful and your grouping is good. I love the old military Mausers, but they have some of the hardest sights for me to use.

    I was looking around on the Midway sight for different apertures and saw this one. Really good reviews on it so I bought it. It really brightens and clears up the sight picture. I think I will also replace the front sight with a brass bead type. That should do it, I hope.

    It seams to work good and thank you. Mauser sights are hard to pick up for me as well, tiny little rear notch. These peep sights are much better. Just trying to get them dialed in to me.

    That's really nice, and the group is good also....Might have to do something similar with my VZ. Everything is on hold for me though, at least until my current project is complete and finished fleecing my pockets every time it hears a coin clink.

    Picked up a brass bead front sight from Midway yesterday. Also picked up a ramp style front sight pusher made by Williams. Awesome tool, literally took less than a minute to push off the old sight and push on the new one.

    Sight tool and the old sight.

    New bead sight installed.
