I recently purchased a Marbles Tang Sight for the above rifle. On Saturday I took it to the local gun shop (Castro Valley) to get a hole drilled and tapped for the second mounting screw. They informed me their gunsmith died last year, and they don't do that type of work anymore. Any suggestions where I can take it-I live in the East Bay (Emeryville). Thanks,
Pete

I had the same work done to my 1897 Texan. Sierra Gunsmith in Walnut Creek did it. It cost $50 and took two weeks.
