Guys need your knowledge again.

I have a .32-20 that came with marbles front an rear sights, to fine for my eyes.

I have replaced the rear with a correct ladder sight and a homestead reproduction front sight.

my question’s are the front sight seams really tall , I assume I have to file it down ? What height should it be from the mounting pin to the top of the sight ?

Regards 

Dean

Can anyone please measure the height of an original 32-20 carbine front sight blade  ?

Hello Dean,

According to Pirkle’s book on the 1886 and 1892 rifles on page 181 he says the front sight is 21/64 ths or .32815 inches high.   I hope this helps.
