Malcom short for 1873 rifle

great and fast customer service. Fast shipping, in 5 days calculating customs and courier in Italy arrived at home.
Too bad only for the quality of the finishes, in particular the burnishing and the writing not up to par. I have another 6x long Malcolm installed on a Sharp which will be around 12 years old and has superior quality.

Good Optics, given physical restrictions. Bad mounting, hard to zero.

Initially I was very unhappy because it was dark and fuzzy through the optic. I eventually was able to adjust the focus, and that made a big difference. No my issue is that period correct mounting and period correct zeroing adjustments are extremely hard to do successfully. The front mount has a set screw that allows you to move the front mount left and right, but there's no way to gauge your adjustments. At 50 yards have the front mount set screw tightened at a location as far right as it will go before there is nothing into which to screw. Compensating for rounds that land right of zero. Also it seems drifting the front sight changes more than windage. Moving the front sight seems to affect elevation as well. Doing the best I could with the front sight, I've worked with the rear sight. The windage and elevation adjustments also seem to affect more than just windage and elevation, but to some extent both, regardless of whether or not you are adjusting the windage or elevation. It's quite maddening. Also, when you may eventually have some success, the rear adjustments are far off center. There are no other adjustments to try and get them closer to center. Of course after your sight is pretty well zeroed, your front sight mount comes loose and you have to start all over again because there is no way to determine where your front sight mount was before it came loose.
I love the idea of this sight. It is nice and sharp with nice cross hairs, but the eye relief depth is very small and the trying to zero the sight and have it stay zeroed is very difficult. I'm hating this sight because I can't get to a point where I can just enjoy it.
