I have an SAR-48 Izzy HB. The highest # on the sight base is 600m. It is an Israeli base(marked). The apature is a Tall aperture(Israeli marked).

My question is? Should this gun have a 700m base? Or were they varied? One would think the HB would have a 700m base and the LB would have a 600m. So what is correct?

I would appreciate if those with Sar-48 HB Izzy would look at let me know whats on their rifle.

Thanks

My SAR-48 HB had a 700m site. I think you are correct 700m on HB 600 on LB. Keep in mind though these guns were assembled by Springfield so they *probably* used what came in the parts kits and that may have varied.

It should have the 700 meter base. HTH, Dan.

If you switch to the 700m base you also have to get the matching 700m slider (aperture).

Now.. we have the 600 and 700 meter sliders (easy enough to tell apart as they're marked 600 and 700 :wink: ), but exactly how does one differentiate between the standard and taller model sight leafs? What markings differentiate between the two?

The 700m sight leaf (aperture, slider whatever ;) ) has one difference, its notched at the rear where it lines up with the sight base range markings.

This is correct sliders on bases.

This is when the wrong sliders and bases are mixed. Even tho the sliders are locked into a range notch the rear of the sliders do not line up correctly with range markings.
