    I'm just curious.

    I don't have a precise measurement but the guestimate is that its around 2.5 to 2.75 above the bore.

    I did a quick calculation and with what seemed to be "normal" loads and ballistics and it would be possible to have a 6-7" high 100 yard hit with a 50 yard zero but the sights would have to be 7" or so above the bore-line. Seemed unusual but with adapting to military designs most anything is possible.

    Wish I could help. Hope you get it figured out.

    You may have picked the worst possible rifle ever produced on this planet to try to make shoot. There are plenty of Brit SMLE's and such that are capable of fine accuracy after being tuned up by experienced gunsmiths. The jungle carbine and copies of it just will not shoot. I owned a real jungle carbine in the 60's. It wasn't even fun to shoot with the recoil and muzzle blast. Much less the wandering zero.

    Somebody else said modern cheap bolt guns are better. I agree. I would not bother with it. And generally, I think every rifle can be OK. But not the jungle carbine.

    I sold mine to my cousin for 75 bucks just before I enlisted in 1969. He didn't have it for very long either.....
