I purchased an 1873 Carbine in 44 40 this past weekend. It is a 400,000 serial #. I can get it and be exact if needed. It has aome proof marks which look English.

My question is about the Tang. It is marked 1873 but is not drilled for a Tang Sight. Madis doesnt show this as a variation.

Any thoughts? It has the wrong carbine sight on it. Should it have the one marked 1873?

Thanks
Rex

Good morning,

According to Jim Gordon the upper tangs of carbines were less commonly D&T with the holes for a folding peep sight.
