I was lucky enough to find a older Pedersoli Sharps in 45-70 Govt. at a very good price- so I`m happily on my way to learning how to load and shoot black powder cartridges.

The rifle currently has a rear long range Soule sight made by Armi San Marco with a eye piece with a very small, fixed aperture.

I`m finding the eye piece aperture is too small to give me a bright enough sight picture, and the sight adjustments are not repeatable or positive- when I re-tighten the windage or elevation lock after making a sight change I lose or change the adjustment I just tried to make.
I`ve researched and found the Italian sights aren`t always the best and that my complaint is a common one.

I`m thinking on using a rear sight and adjustable eye piece from Lee Shaver Lee Shaver Soule

Has anyone here used one of his sights or done business with him?

I was doing the research myself and they were well regarded along with MVA.

In the end I bought a used vernier sight by C. sharps co.

Cast boolits websight members often recommend the lee shaver sights. Google will find you some comments.

I hope that helps even though I have no personal experience with the models by lee.

They are a good sight, solid and repeatable.
I prefer Baldwin's but its more coin.

I've known Lee Shaver for a decade. He's a straight shooter in all ways, I can recommend him with complete confidence.

Thanks for the help- I ordered a Lee Shaver Soule sight with a Hadley eye cup today.

Looking forward to getting them-
