M1888 Buffington Sight

Posted by Vince Knapp on Friday, 23 September 2016, at 1:23 p.m.

Acquired my first Trapdoor. SN 5258xx, SWP/1892, with "7" and "488" on the stock.

I've emailed Al about a replacement Buffington sight but before I do I want to make sure the sight was not an authorized military mod.

The sight base is in place but missing the sight leaf & slide. In its place is a pinned "V" or "U" sight. Does not look like a bubba job and has been there for time.

Has anyone ever come across this sight modification?

Thanks in advance.
