Improvised aperture.

Q I have a No. 4 Lee-Enfield and enjoy shooting it whenever I can get time to go to the local range. My problem is that the hole or peep in the rear sight is just too large. I cannot seem to shoot the rifle accurately. Is there any way I can get a smaller hole without altering the sight? I want to keep the rifle in its original condition By the way, I am not using the combat sight; lam using the elevation adjustable peep sight.

A A quick and easy way to get a smaller aperture for your rear sight is to first place a piece of plastic electrician's tape over the rear sight aperture. Next, use a small pin or other sharp pointed tool to punch a hole in the tape. Try to make sure you center the hole in the tape over the aperture. You can easily adjust the size of the hole in the tape to obtain the best size aperture. Also, this tape sight is super cheap, can * easily be removed when you have finished shooting, and will not alter the originality of your rifle.
