Re: 1879 rear sight

Hotchkiss (the martial versions made at SA).

Where, exactly, did you see the photo?

This is a *VERY "hot" topic, and if you have CREDIBLE new evidence, there is still - barely - time to get it into my book (which was sent to the printer for final review this morning). They will be sending me a proof copy in a few days, for FINAL FINAL release to the sales channels.

I might even be interested in purchasing the sight, if it is available.

*It is very clear what was used on the second model (1880) carbines, but NOT clear at all as to what was ORIGINALLY supplied on the first (1879) models.
