Preferably without screwing anything up. Also, what is the diameter of the standard A2 rear aperture??

what's wrong with it?

I guess you can, I don't see why it can't be done.

Why not just buy a new rear aperture and install it - $7 seems alot better than trying to hack your way to the solution.

That is an excellent idea. How difficult is it to install one?

Not difficult at all - takes about 15 minutes if you take your time. All you need is a flat blade screwdriver and a 1/16" pin punch.

Punch the pin 3/4 the way out of the windage knob using the punch, then remove the knob (watch out for the detent ball bearing that will fall out). Next, use the screw driver to unscrew the aperture. Replace old aperture with the new one (watch that the flat spring under the old aperture doesn't fall out.

Reverse the process.
