Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

1891 Argentine Carbine

#1 Post by One too many » Fri Feb 01, 2019 6:42 am

Hi all, some advice needed on 1891 Argentine carbine rear sight. It slides and won’t stay in place. Is there a spring or tensioner that I am missing or is it more of a friction fit?
I am a newbie to this forum and this rifle. Please correct me if I need it. 😐

Spring is most likely broken.
