Re: Model 1873 Carbine at auction in 2 weeks

looks to me the sight screw is just broken. I think I can see the remainder of the screw down through the hole. I've had a few that were broken like this and I simply, though real carefully, drilled them out, cleaned up the threads, and put on a new screw.

I'm no expert, but am pretty darn good at relics and it looks pretty darn period and same over all patina to me.

Sure wish I'd have bought all i could when I was younger!

who'd of guessed!
