Tony responded to my email. He said he has not got around to making the sights, plans to, not sure when.

You don't have top wait for Tony, you can get them here and they are the best reproduction you will find...

Very nice rifle.  You are a lucky man to get your hands on beautiful firearms like that.  Like those Freund aftermarket sights.  Could you post a side view of that front sight?  Does the front sight have an hourglass curvature in the rear center or is it an illusion, to me?  If yes, what do you think it did or does for the oversight picture?

Now to the next topic --- a 50 caliber against a gopher?? Really?? :o ;D ::)   Must have 'monster' gophers up by you.

It is hard to get a camera lens close enough to the barrel to get a picture of the sight as you would see it from sighting the rifle. It is a bead with a thin support staff and a brass insert in the front of the sight...

What a beauty , and a shooter to boot .,,,DT

Yes, I got it out to the range already and I could get this group at 100 yards with those sights and 68 year old eyes...

You would probably just have to buy a 86 from a manufacturer and send it somewhere to have it converted to 50-110. It's not a popular cartridge like 45-70 or even 45-90, so a custom gun would be your best bet.

Yes, indeed!  Unless it is the same company who was going to bring back Merwin Hulbert.  :D

Another amazing rifle! Theodore Roosevelt was a fan of Freund sights. There exists a letter that he wrote to Frank Freund requesting to have the vertical line on the rear sight painted vermilion instead of white. At one time, the Cody Firearms Museum had three 1876 Winchesters which had formerly belonged to Roosevelt and all three have Freund sights.

Thanks again for letting us experience the gun vicariously!
