    A couple of months ago I picked up an old 1917 Enfield in 30-06 that had been sporterized but was now missing any sort of rear sight assembly. Anyone know of a quick fix for something like that? Also, I got a Marlin 25 bolt action .22 that's missing a front sight. Is there some sort of clamp-on universal front sight I could get? Or should I take them both to a gunsmith?
    Thanks! :)

    Probably best to have a gunsmith install some sights on the barrel. Something to a Remington 700 sight system. Probably cost you $50 plus for the parts and another bit for installation. Either having them silver soldered on or drilled and tapped.
