YES, you do need the correct sight.
If your rifle indeed does have a Buffington (not Bannerman)sight, you will be able to correct for windage on the range. The "Buckhorn" sights were the first models manufactured for the Model '73. The Buffington sight is far superior to the Buchkorn sight & is correct for the '88 Rod Gun.
Try removing the Rod Bayonet to pattern the rifle. Then install the Rod & pattern again. See what, if anything, changes. Also check the rod to make sure it is straight.
Welcome to the club. Have fun but be safe.
