1891 Argentine Carbine

Post by One too many »

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.

To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.
