I've had my Uberti NWMP carbine for some time now and I really like it.  The only thing that has been a real issue for me has been that the gun shoots very high.  Since the sights are not really adjustable, I've tried a couple of things to improve things.  Firstly, I used JB Weld to attach a brass rod, which I had shaped, to the top of the front sight.  It worked, but it was very... unsightly.  (I've used that method with other rifles and it really didn't detract from the appearance, but this one did.)  I then purchased a Marble's tang sight, which solved the POA/POI problem, but I really didn't like it.  The sight itself seemed fragile and I was always worried about bending it or something.  Also, it just didn't look right to me on a NWMP carbine.

Yesterday I did what I probably should have done from the start.  I filed down the flats on top of the stock rear sight and slightly deepened the groove.  I brought the POI down to POA, then cold blued the sight.  Ahhh.  Now it looks like it should (although I wish it had something more like a Spanish Metre sight) AND hits where I'm aiming.  It really was pretty quick and easy; I feel silly for having tried all of the other "solutions" first.  Live and learn, I guess.

My Chiappa was about the same. After a session at the range I discovered that if you hold the frontsight very finely, just so it looks like a speck of pepperat the bottom of the "V". THEN, everything fell into line all the way out to our max range of 300 yards.

I've found that most uberti 73 carbines are the same way. Have to file down the rear sight.

When I get elected as King of Uberti, one of the first things that I will decree, right after selling Bongo to a travelling circus, will be that ALL front sights must be made extra high to allow users to easily file them down to suit themselves.  Ah, yes, King of Uberti.  I can see myself on the throne now.  What a benevolent ruler I would be.

Check your magazine tube fit.  When I first got mine, I wound up having to set up a 4'x8' sheet of OSB to see where I was hitting at.  about 3'-4' high at 40 yards.  Found the issue when I went to remove the mag tube.  It was in such a bind that it was flexing the barrel up.  It's been a while, but seems like I had to take about 1/16" off the end, and that lowered the shot placement considerably.  Enough that I could use the factory sights.  I wound up replacing the rear sight with a ghost ring simply because my eyes aren't 19 anymore.
