    As per my PM.............. yes I have a complete set of Swedish Mauser M96 sights. These were removed from a rifle that was being sporterised by another club member so were unsoldered from the barrel. They have a little surface rust as this was a long time back and they have been sitting in my storage dawer ever since in case they came in useful.

    The front sights for the M96 and M38 military Mausers come in different heights, to set the starting elevation. Standard height is about a 300 meter zero, but you can change that to a 200 or a 100. The older ones were regulated with 156-gr RN bullets, and the 1941 and later ones with 139-gr spitzer bullets, and there are different barrel lengths, so you have to play around with some.

    From my feeble old memory....
    +0.5 = 300 meter zero
    +3.5 = 200 meters

    SARCO has extra tall sights for 100 yard zero, and some other ones.
