I bought an 1895G in .45-70 a few years ago and had shot it like once. I decided to fix that the other day. Well after not being able to hit anything, I moved the target in to 25yrds, where it was shooting about a foot low with the rear sight as high as it would go. I tried the HSM bear load, the Hornady lever stuff and some Federal Fusion. All more or less a foot low. So I'm guessing the front sight on it is wrong. Either that or something is wrong with the gun, but I don't know what would cause that. It is a pre-Remington Marlin.
Has anyone had this problem with these guns? It's the standard sights that come with it. I was thinking about putting something else on, but I wanted to see if it was the sights or the gun before I spend anything on it. Do they make multiple heights of the front blade for these, and if so does anyone in Anchorage carry them?
