1. I have an area 30' x 18' x 12' x 42'.........how many square feet is that?
2. I have a Mauser that shoots 1 foot high at 100 yards. Since the rear sight is down as far as it can go, any idea how much wood to 'Dremel' off the stock to bring it down to where it shoots a little low (I can always shim the sight base when it's low)?

Dale, the front sight needs to be RAISED, not filed down. As for your other question, I would like to see this 4 dimensional space of yours. If you were trying to describe a trapezoid, it would be roughly 432 square feet, though it is not possible to get an exact figure without knowing the angles and sequence of sides. The order given would make it kind of diamond shaped.

I agree with Klaus, the front sight needs to be raised. I did this with a Finnish M39, using JB Weld. It has held up well for four years and many hundreds of rounds. It's metallic grey color goes well with worn blueing, too.
Numrich (Gun Parts Corp.) has front sight blades in various heights. I think Brownells has these also. I think they are in increments of 1/16th inch.
