  1. Thanks for your description. I now want to order one of these for my Uberti 1885 High Wall 45/70. Not many references to this sight that I have found. One guy in a forum raved about his, and said he had a second one on order. Your video sealed the deal for me.

  2. Vernier sights were in use long before the Creedmoor range was established. Despite the advertising claims by some of todays makers for 'Goodwin inspired' sights, manufacture of the original ceased long before the opening of Creedmoor rifle range in the USA in 1873. 'Goodwin' refers to Dr. F.C. Goodwin's sight marketed by W.H. Blanch of Liverpool. It was introduced c1863 but seems to be dropped by 1865. As originally introduced it was an orthoptic device and used in combination with the barrel mounted rearsight and the foresight. The only original I have seen has no graduations on it whatsoever.

  3. I watched your video and like the sight that you installed on the rifle! I was looking at this and noticed that there is a screw that holds the upright veneer in place. I think that maybe a knurled thumb screw might be better if installed there. the upright arm must be keyed someway there, and it would make it easier to take that off and on for storage, as it would allow for quick realignment of the sight! have you tried to remove that screw yet?
