Hello, I have searched a lot on this forum, and through the faq's.
I have a question that I can't seem to find a definitive answer to.

I have a 45-70 Nef, that I would like to send the reciever in and get a 32" barrel for.
Will I have to get a new forearm for the barrel to fit correctly?
I would like to add a front globe sight ( like the lyman), and a rear flip up style sight (the wesson and harrington) so I can plink at longer yardages
like 500+.

What front globe sight height should I get to match the rear sight?

Has anyone done this conversion?
Any opinions on the least expensive way to go about it?
Thanks in advance.

The BC barrel fits all SB2 frames, so that's not a problem, your forend will fit fine too, or you can order a stock set if you choose and just send the frame in. Bernie and I use the Smith sight with the .404" 17A front sight, but I don't think H&R sells it and I know they don't sell the Smith sight, theirs are higher, the link on long range sights in the FAQs covers those and others.
