Yup, I get that. I am going to let my order ride to see what happens. The Perersoli sight arrive today. Mr. Beauchamp gets it done. I ordered the sight Monday just before noon, it showed up in todays mail,all the way from Massachusetts. I spend the evening getting it installed. Turned into a bit more of a chore than I expected, but I do enjoy working on projects like this. I will get it to the range on Saturday, and hopefully will have some range report pics to show off.

Nice!
What I like about the sight is that it really does look like it belongs on that rifle, looking more period correct, and not out of place.
Good job!

Today the drill bit and 12-40 tap arrived. I drilled out the peep hole in the spare post and threaded it. It was a bit tight but the aperture screwed in. After oiling and working it in and out a couple of times, it fit very nicely. I had a spare .090 aperture so I used it. Then I drilled and tapped the post I was using. I will be ordering a "set" of them for using in different conditions and ranges. I am very pleased with the way it turned out and super happy with the rifle.
Updated the pictures to show the new setup. Now - is it Saturday yet????

Griz look for a Merit disk they screw right into Lyman and Williams, Redfield and now with your fix right into yours.

They adjust tiny to big making the size you need for the light easy peasy

Found their website. I like it! For the cost of 2 or 3 normal disks, you get them all.... Will be ordering one on Friday.
THANKS!
