144xxx Project front site tap question

Post by tokashikibob » Sun Apr 21, 2019 4:57 pm

Gents, I'm going to cut a inch or so off this 1858. Does anyone have any tips or links about how to relocate the front site tapped hole? It is so dang shallow!

I would simply cut a 3/8" dovetail and get a different front sight. Since the barrel is being shortened it's not going to have any collector value anyway, so switching to a dovetailed sight wont hurt.
