That .030 aperture will bring the front sight into sharp focus, but only when there is enough light. My 1967 model 94 .30-30 Winchester has an aperture of .032 diameter. I have shot 4MOA at 500 yards with it in very bright sun.

For my 1895 Marlin in .45-70, I have a Montana Vintage Arms tang sight with an adjustable aperture. I stop it down until I get "spiderwebs" then open it up one or two stops.

You and I sir, we enjoy working on our rifles as much as we enjoy shooting them.

I like it!! I have a DCM upper built by John Hollinger at White Oak Armament. Very similar to what you show there but no muzzle device and no chromed BGC. Otherwise, 1:7 air guaged barrel, pinned rear 1/4 MOA sight, FF handguard, locktighted front tower. Shoots like a house-afire. I scored Rifleman with that beast at an Appleseed with crappy 55 gr surplus ammo.

oooh! Rock River. It's on the list, along with building up a .22lr version, building up a NM Springfield Garand, and buying one of each "full house" battle rifle that was issued by the US in the 20th century.
What sort of trigger did you go with? I've been strongly advised to get the RRA two-stage military trigger, so I can compete in the various CMP and NRA games.
