Just joined the forum, been reading for a while now and I got to say I love this site. What a great bunch of folks.
I started shooting old guns, beginning with an 1873 springfield about 50 yrs ago with my dad and now with sons and grandsons.
About a month ago I stumbled across a uberti 1866 carbine 44-40 an brought it home. It says American Arms on the barrel and by the date code it was made in 1999. I don't think it had ever been shot. Hammer didn't have fireing pin strike mark.
I love to shoot it very much but if the light isn't just right with my 59 yr old eyes I have a hard time with the sights.
Would It be a terrible sin if I were to put a marble tang sight on a carbine?
