This sight is also called the Buffington rear sight. It was the first Springfield 45-70 rear sight with a Knob Windage Adjustment. It will fit and function perfect on any Springfield 45-70 Trapdoor. See Picture of the bottom of sight leaf where a relief slot was added. This relief slot does not affect the function of the ladder and can not be seen when the ladder is in the down position.
