Beach front sight ?

Will the beach sight offered on the web site match the dove tail on a Farmingdale business rifle 1874? It has a standard round 28" barrel.

That Beach sight is made by Montana Vintage Arms and comes in a number of sizes to fit different dovetails. It would be wise to measure the size of your dovetail as I am not sure is the Farmingdale rifles had the same size front dovetail. You want the sight base to be very slightly oversize so that you can custom fit it for a snug fit.

MVA will fit the older guns if they haven't been tampered with yet.
