Thanks Tom,
                  I'm in Australia, into CAS over here which is very popular.   I liked what you referred to with the Kelly Tang sight, and intend fitting one on my Uberti 1876 Centennial in 45.60. any advice on where I can find them over your way ?

I have gone thru the chain on "sights", I have used the marbles peep sight, Marbles Improved Peep Sight, Taylor's & Company DOS Winchester Tang Sight, and a couple of Italian made Tang Sights... had problems with all of the above.  I forked out the money and went with a KELLY SIGHT... best decision I have ever made... they are not cheap, but they are VERY WELL MADE and they are ACCURATE.  I mounted the Mid Range on my '86 for starters and I am so impressed with Jim Kelly's sights I am going to install one on my 45-60. I cannot say enough good things about this sight... instead of forking out money for the above I should have just added a few more dollars and bought Kelly upfront... very accurate and it looks good also.

Here is jim Kelley's website.  Buffalo arms carries the sights when they can get them.  Cheers.

Sorry I have been out of town ... slow to your apology. MBM responded... You cannot buy the Kelley Sights from his website.  Only place I know of to buy the sights is Buffalo Arms. You will have to contact Jim Kelley (see his website for email) and tell him what you have and send him the measurements from center hole to center hole for your '76. He will have to custom make you a sight base. He does not charge extra for this. He will ask you to send him the Long Tang Screw and the small Tang Screw from the upper Tang for duplication (he will return them for you with the completed base) his work/craftsmanship is SUPERIOR and he is a pleasure to business with. For both my '86 and '76 I bought the Silhouette Mid Range Soule Sight, it is very accurate and it looks good on both rifles. Here are some pictures of the sight mounted on my '76 Centennial Rifle (Uberti) 45-60.
