IMPROVE YOUR SCORES SIMPLY BY IMPROVING YOUR ABILITY TO SEE!
Almost without exception, the top rifle shots of the world use aperture front sights. Convert your Garand as-issue post to a Globe front with interchangeable apertures. Can be installed in two minutes with the wrench .......
Using a 'Service Rifle' with an aperture front sight is perfectyl 'legal' in an NRA approved or registered match when the competitor enters in the 'Match Rifle' category. The front sight changes would preclude the rifle from being used in the 'Service Rifle' category, however. This would be important to a military shooter but not to a civlian shooter. The reason of course is the fact there are so few matches available to civilians that have a separate 'Service Rifle' category. Further, DCM 'Leg Matches', where a globe front sight couldn't be used are rare and their frequency has been cut further in 1986 when DCM cut support to only one 'leg' match per state per year. A leg match is associated with a regional or state championship match.
The greatly improved performance and utility of a globe front sight far outweghs any disadvantages. Almost without exception, the world's best shooters use globe front sights with the aperture insert. If that rare occasion does present itself to shoot in a 'Service Rifle' category, simply detach the globe with the allen wrench provided and re install the original G.I. blade for that one match. It can be changed in seconds!
The advantages of using a globe front with aperture insert are; vastly clearer sight and target definition, greatly reduced eye fatigue and of course, advanced scores. I advise that a shooter use the largest aperture in the set so as to see plenty of light around the target. This reduces eye fatigue and-believe it or not- better scores will result.
