    OK, My Western Field Model 47C (a Mossberg 45b I think) arrived last night. Nice walnut stock, blue is around 60%, but not bad for a gun made in 1938. Bore is perfect.

    Anyway, the rifle has a front sight (brass or something), a rear open sight, and then a Mossberg No. 4 peep sight. For the peep, should I be trying to get a sight picture through the rear sight as well, (like, make all three sights line up) or just remove it or ignore it and align the peep with the front?

    Also, how much have people paid to hot blue rifles?

    Last night Santa (UPS) brought me my 300 rounds of 7.62x54R last night :love:

    Mille gracias.

    ignore the middle sight, just use the front and rear. You should be pretty much ignoring the rear and focusing on the front blade (or whatever), you eye will put naturally center it in the rear sight.

    Thanks.

    This is just temporary until I find some crazy Lyman peep sights with a front apeture or I get a vintage Mossy scope.
