180 Series Mini Rear Sight
I received a 180 series Mini-14 from my father many years ago. I took the scope and scope mount off for it never kept zero. I wanted to put the rear iron sight back on, but over the years the original parts have been lost. Several months ago I called Brownell’s for a rear iron sight and they recommended “a rear sight assemble”. I specifically asked it would fit a 180 series, and their answer was yes. After assembly though, my problem is that it shoots 6-7 inches high at 35 yards and I am at the downward limit of the rear sight adjustment.
I am not worried about 1” MOA with this Mini. I just want to be able to hit a pie plate at 100 yards with iron sights or a red dot scope. Anybody have any ideas on how to pick up an original 180 series rear iron sight assemble or a secure scope mount for a red dot?
