Thanks for another interesting video. Brought back memories. Many years ago, I bought a Campaign hat at a Flea Market for 17 bucks. I used it for Wild Bunch.

I have a Buffalo Classic with a Marbles tang sight mounted. The rifle shoots well enough out to 300 yards. The gunsmith mounted the sight to the stock, looks good and has remained solid for about 25 years.

 :) Hi Reverend P.B.C  ;)

Well I'm the "Nay Sayer" in the crowd.  I have owned and shot three different Handi Rifles.  First was a .44 Manglem, Then a .45 Colt followed up by my favorite 38-55 Target.  I really like the Handi Rifle.

I have also shot with some folks who elected to install a "Tang" sight.  As you are aware, there is no "Tang."  The sight must be mounted into a wood Butt Stock.  Wood is not stable.  It moves (sometimes a lot).  I have installed two for "others" neither of whom were happy with the long term results.  I don't recommend it.

I do however, Recommend a "Smiths Enterprises"  ladder sight assembly.  Has positive stops on the ladder and the basic sight is a Buckhorn.  Being attached to the barrel makes it very stable.  I put one on all my rifles.  Give it a serious look.
I don't but will keep that in mind.  I'm sorry you missed this one.

If you have another mold for the 33 winchester hiding out anywhere I am desperately needing one. 
Gunsmithing / H&R Handi rifle tang sight
« Last post by Reverend P. Babcock Chase on Yesterday at 10:51:23 PM »
Howdy Fellers,

I done bought me the Handi rifle in .357. My plan is to use it for cowboy long range pistol caliber. I haven't shot it yet, but I'm wondering how folks mount a tang sight on these things. I may not need one, but I thought I'd try to learn from some of the more experienced H&R owners here. I've seen some recommendations for mounting inserts in the stock wrist to screw the sight base into. This seems a bit more elegant than just using a couple of wood screws. 

By the way, What sight should I be looking for?

Any ideas would be appreciated,
Rev. Chase
