    Just be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules on dovetailing sights.

    Front Sights

    Glad you brought that up. This thread made me go look at it, not sure the Enfield barrel is thick enough to cut a dovetail... Also I guess you would be referring to 19.9.1 a and k. Thanks, I have been prone to try just for the hell of it before the brain kicks in.

    But they still smell the powder burnin' and they probably always will"

    Dan Whitacre can do it, I have him dovetailing both a Euroarms Enfield and a Miroku/Navy Arms 1864 Springfield. Id give him a call and see what he says
