I'm thinking of making new Marlin-Hepburn sights that are true to the originals.

The problem is that I don't possess an original.

I would like your input on 2 counts.

First - answer the survey - Would you buy one if the price was less than what originals are selling for?

Second - If you own one would you send me some HD pics of it? Specifically the mechanical workings (hinge, aperture arm, base, graduations, serrations). I'll but one if there is enough interest to make it worth my while to duplicate and sell them

PM me and I'll send you my email for pics

thanks

thanks MM93

I didn't intend on trying to reproduce one from photos, but they'll give me a chance to try and make a plan.

Once, I've decided for sure to go ahead, I'll have to buy an old original (or good repro) to use as the master copy for the new repros.

They will not be made overseas.

Hopefully I'll be making them, but if I decide to outsource, they will still be made either in Canada or the US.
