    Both are quality sights. I prefer the MVA mid range tang sights for a rear sight and the Lee Shaver spirit level globes for the front. I like the way that Lee's sight secures the aperture like a Lyman 17a rather than a spring tab that gets caught on...

    You'll go into sticker shock when you find some it's about 60.00 a brick now. I think it was graf's or target sports had some. I also use to shoot a lot of them back in the day but not at the new price.

    Up date: I haven't got pics yet but I have figured out it is a .50-70 and instead of 3 bands like the other military models this one only has 2 bands. Also in Mike Venturino's book "Shooting buffalo rifles of the old west" he notes that the .50-70's...

    I'll see if I can get one of my kids to help with the pic's as far as the finish goes its all the metal on the rifle not just the receiver. I know the navy cadets were built in .50 cadet but why the 3" difference in barrel length and its not a cut...

    Plus 1 on the Glock field knife they have 2 versions one of which has a saw built into the back of the blade. They hold an edge very well and are a lot easier to find not to mention they are lower priced. You could get 2 for the price of a quality U...

    I sent him an email last week about a custom mold and haven't gotten a response yet either. I hate to say it but I think Jared gets so busy sometimes that if he thinks its a stupid question he doesn't reply.

    1Hawkeye replied to a thread M71 Browning won't fire in Leverguns
