    For the life of me I cannot figure how the front site base on a 91/30 is attached....I know the m44 is pinned, but I cannot find anything on the net describing how the 91/30 is attached....

    does anyone know??? I wanted to shorten the barrel and keep the front site..I would probably buy a 44 but have not seen any around lately..

    That "molded" part is what I am trying to remove...I have the sight post and hood out of the dove tail....the "base" is what I cannot figure out...

    No pins that I can see..

    Don't ruin it, wait a bit and get an M38 or M44. Do you have a C&R?

    My 91/30 shot about 12" high. I ended up stripping the plastic insulation off some Romex wire and twisting that over the peg to raise it. Kind of a thick front sight but still much better.
