Buckhorn sight - as sighted with a bore based laser sight tool. (I made a graphic to print out and take to the range) 

Does this seem right to everyone? I put the bore sight in my Winchester 1873 and it looked spot on. I am thinking this is just the way to use a buck horn sight.  (Should i consider replacing the front sight to get this to match?)

I will let everyone know when I get a little range time next if this version of  "eyeball sighting" works.

I use the full buckhorn sight much like a ghost ring about like your top IAB Carbine diagram.

This the reason that they weren't allowed in NMLRA matches years ago. I don't know if they are today.

The issue I was having is that when I line the front blade up with the notch at the bottom of the buckhorn ... the laser showed much higher than that spot (as indicated by the red X) .... I will give it a try when I go to the range next and see what happens.

I am looking for a good NON-TANG-VERNIER sight option for the range and hunting.

I sighted the notch for 100 yards for when I had the need for a more precise aim.  The middle of the buckhorn was for fast work such as close hunting shots or CAS type shooting.
