You will need a different rear sight base. The screw for the Olympic sight is a larger thread than the Redfield 75

I picked up a 513T ( military trainer circa 1942) back in January and have experimented with some old sights and parts. I am an average shooter at best so I use a bench device for sighting.
I was able to mount an Olympic rear using a Steve Earle, Remington rear mount. I use a Redfield 64 (.733) front globe. The front blade sight was replaced with the Redfield front sight base ( .175) so that I could use detachable front globes.
I was able to keep a 5 shot group under .25 at 50 yards using a "lead sled" to sight in this setup. When shooting with a sling in a sitting position the group goes out to under an inch, which is good for me. Yesterday was my first chance to try this setup and it looks like I will keep it.
I hope this helps.
