    Using original sights my M44 hits 8.5 inches above point-of-aim at 25 yards.
    I've decided to mount a scope rather than replace the front sight blade.
    I understand a sturdy scope (and mounts) will be required as the carbine has a healthy kick.
    It may also need more than usual elevation adjustment.
    The four scope-mounting screws (two on the barrel, two on the rear of the receiver) are both small and at different levels.
    The receiver screws are 0.050 in. above the barrel's.

    How did you handle this aberration ?
