Folks I have know idea why it posted that many times. I apologize. I guess I don't know what I don't know.

I guess if I felt that I needed a modern scope on a Shiloh I'd have a smith/machinist build me a picatinny rail that had a dovetail on the bottom for the rear barrel sight dovetail and extended eye relief pistol scope for it. No extra drill and tap holes then. bobw

if scopes had evolved to today's level, but rifles and powder were the same as in the 1800s, what would all the guys be using?
good to see a guy getting out and doing it, playing the cards he has been dealt.
