I have enjoyed playing with the 1851 Navy .. but that little bitty brass bead for a front sight just wasn't cutting it!

[image]

So I removed the bead and cut a dovetail in the barrel and mounted an 1858 Remington front sight.

The Remington sight proved to be way too narrow for me to see very well, so I pulled it out and installed a Williams rifle front sight. I began cutting it down as it was too high.

[image]

On the range I removed most of the sight with a file to get it to the proper elevation.

[image]

Then I re-shaped it -again.

I am getting it dialed in.

Thanks. I work pretty slow and I am sloppy at times.

of good metal and wood workers. Today I have 2 plus Kase and me. Nobody wants to work. They can get $420 a week unemployment so why work.

I am sorry to hear that. Not good for you or the nation.

medium businesses all across the country and they all say the same thing, nobody wants to work. They are all hurting due to no help and being behind. This country is really in a mess, and I don't see any change in the long run.

Yes it's sad

Like one man plus myself run an entire water department that services sewer and water to a few thousand people and we work our fingers to the bone and no one else wants to get a job and help us. If they do they only last like a month or two then guess what they quit.

Try finding some boys to crawl in a muddy ditch

For $20 an hour to keep the whole county in water and sewer services. It’s getting tough. We really try to take care of the ones we get too. But it’s a thankless and tough job, for a younger man. We have to find men who care and know others depend on them, even taken for granted. A uphill battle for sure, happening all over in varied industry.

Be hard for me to make it on $420 a week!

people I interview for the city positions seemed to be, 1. When is Payday ? 2. Do I really have to there at 8 in the morning ?

Many want to be a YouTube sensation.
