Re: Frozen Buffington Sight

If lubrication hasn't worked, carefully remove the sight from the barrel and check to see that the movable base is not pinned to the fixed base. This was sometimes done, to prevent the soldiers from messing with the sights.

The pins can be hard to get out, but all of the trenching and stump pulling is done where the inevitable scars will never be seen.
