    I finally was able to shoot my carbine today. Fit finish and trigger is acceptable to me. The only function problem I encountered was while trying to catch empties, I had a few case rims slide back under the bolt and jamb the action. I had to pull the bolt back( with the muzzle down the bolt moves forward just enough to trap the case head) to rattle the empty out from under the bolt. I had no other issues with single loading into the port, or from the magazine tube, or with loading and ejection of empties. Now a few negatives! I took a needle file to the outer magazine tubes loading port because the inner tube wanted to grab when pushing it in. I put a very slight bevel to the inside and it's very smooth now. Then the sights, o boy! This is the worst gun I've ever owned where the sights had to be misaligned on the barrel to be accurate. The front sight had to be moved visually off center left and the rear visually off center right to shoot POA at 50 yards! It was shooting about 11 inches to the right from the factory! Great news is that it's lookin like an accurate little carbine! More to come.

    Good morning
    Accuracy is what it is all about.
    What is the cast weight you are shooting and at what / about fps ? Is this factory ammo ? With my reloads and varying velocity / cast weight we can walk groups across a target never changing the sights.
    Is the rear sight notch cut in the horizontal center of the blade ? Found one big name rifle that was a ways off to the side.
    Is the dovetail on the barrel cut perpendicular to the barrel ? Slight angle and the rear sight is off to a side.
    Is the dove tail on the rear sight perpendicular to the sight ? Have a "big name" and the rear sight was cut off angle to equal 1/4" offset to the left on the barrel.
    Is the front sight bent ? I have bent more than one off to the side ?
    These are just the sight issues that pop up on "Monday morning" rifles / carbines. It is all about precision cut optical sighting systems.

    Now back when rifle barrels were measured in feet the crook of a tree was used to bring the sights on target. Near wanted to pass out when I watched Lizard plop the barrel of a beautiful original flinter into a tree crotch and "tweek" it. But upon assembly it was spot on.

    My 45- 70 was like that too.... But 11 inches low. I got it adjusted ok but didn't really care for it. I removed the semi buckhorn and replaced with a Marbles Bullseye rear sight. Then of course I had to replace the front because it was too tall for the Bullseye sight. It's a deer killer now. Very happy.
