Why not make up a base to suit the Central type sights?   Still one of the best going I hear.

If you look at the pictures of the lane sight in the other post you will see that the Central sight plate would cover the bolt release lever and as the sight mount would have to be lower than the lane you may not get a stiff enough mounting with the central. That is why I used the Lane sight. Virtually the same a sa central in function except for the mounting point.

On both my MKIII CurryGuns if they are oiled they are as slick as a gunfighters holster. But if they are not oiled they can get stiff to the point of "where's that lump of wood". Put some oil on for the next shot and slick as again.
I hope this helps.

The specific load developed was 3 1/2 grains of H4893 behind a lubed 170gr Lyman cast 311291, without gas check.  This load would follow the sight bar on the #1 Mk III set at 500yd - to hit roughly point of aim at 50 feet.  The noise was more of a "Snarpp" than a "Bang" and the bullet was barely visible enroute the target, traveling I guess about 600fps...  plus or minus a few hundred. 
Unfortunately the slow velocity allowed the rats to anticipate impact and dodge the incoming bullets.  On the positive side the bullet impact energy was "controllable" (weak) which meant some bullets were recoverable for a second shooting.  They were hardly damaged if impacting soft wooden fence boards on my family picket fence, sticking up out of the surface like little silver arrows, and with a few wiggles and a yank were retrievable  - shot ok even without resizing.)   Grin
I only used H4895 because I had no other powder - it was 50 cents a pound then, scooped out of a drum i  Smiley

Would you please confirm that is H4895 not H4893? If it is H4893 can you please give me a powder name as H4895 is ADI AR2206H here in Aussie and I have thet.
Cheers.

The sight base was made about 2yr ago by a gunsmith named Rob Spittles.
I sold the rifle due to ill health and as my military MKIII curry gun shoots just as accurate I use it in the same events as the target Ross. No use it not being used when someone else can love her Cheesy  I didn't shoot this year but hope to have a go next year. I have won most events I have uesd the Ross in. Awesome rifle for target shooting.

Aussiesuperdad2, if your Ross is an ex curry gun I will freely tell you which target sight will work perfectly with your MKIII. It is the Lane target sight that has the mounting halfway down the sight. It fits perfect and a mount can be made to fit on the same area as the rear battlesight comes off without damaging the area for using the battlesight again if you wish. I have recently sold my target MKIII with the Lane sight on but if I can find the pics I will send them to admin.

I have just had the timber behind the recoil lug come adrift in my military MKIII. I was doing some ammo testing and shooting terrible groups of 1 1/2 tp 3" groups then  I noticed the action "slide" foreward on one shot. The screws had come loose. Tightened them up and back to 1" at 100yds. The slide bit got me worried and when I got home and pulled her apart and to my shock, A. There was no bedding that I thought I had paid for and B. the timber behind the recoil lug had snapped clean adrift.
So I will have to glue and screw the block back in andthe bed the action with Devcon Plastic Metal.
I am glad I found this now and not before a big competition.
