Is the Piettia '58 Remington sight screwed-in or Silver Soldered in place?
It is soft soldered.

Is the Uberti sight tall enough to allow for some elevation adjustment?

The front sight has plenty of material to allow some removal for sight adjustments.
I regulated my 5 1/2" 1858 Remington to shoot POI at 21 ft. It took a little bit of filing and trial and error to get it right but it was allset-up within a 1/2 hour.
It sure is pleasing when I'm at the range and have a (or a group) of Semi-auto guys watch as I blow the center out ofr a bull at "Combat Distance" The looks are priceless! Just to see this oldtime C&B outshoot a modern Semi-Auto, they don't expect THAT at all!
Having the sights regulated for close range shooting makes offhand plinking at short ranges a ball!
