Installation instructions for the CHILEAN 1895
Push the pin out at the rear of the flip up sight. Remove the top wood over the barrel. Remove the spring by lifting up at the rear and sliding it forward. Slide the flange nut into the under cut at the front of the sight where the spring was & re-install the top wood cover. Orientation not important.
Place the mount over the flange nut with the (2) 4-40 tapped holes toward the butt end. Line the 4-40 tapped holes in the mount up with the holes in the side of the receiver and put in the (2) 4-40 x 3/8 socket head screws. It is very important that these holes line up to keep from damaging the threads when the screws are installed. DO NOT TIGHTEN!
Move the nut around with a pin through the hole in the mount until the round part of the nut slips into the counterbore in the bottom of the mount. Put the 10-32 x ½” flat head screw through the mount and into the nut. Tighten this screw and then the (2) 4-40 socket head screws. The 4-40 screws don’t need to be real tight! Put the 10-32 x ½ set screw down through the tapped hole in the top of the mount and tighten against the receiver. The purpose of the set screws is to keep pressure on the 4-40 socket head screws. Do not try to remove the 4-40 screws with the set screw tight!
