    Update, my friend found the dies, or at least parts of them! I appear to have a resize/decap die and a seating die, as well as four forming dies labeled #1 thru #4. Only 1 die has a lock ring, but its common to cannibalize dies you no longer...

    On my Match 03A3, I just filed the front sight base parallel with the outside of the barrel, filed the dovetail off of the Lyman 17A, and used Brownells Hi Force 44 solder to attach it. It has held rock solid for going on 20 years now. If...
