    Vitali M1870/87

    Brought home another misfit today..a Vitali M1870/87. Looks like she was originally made by Torino in 1873. The 'RIPARAZIONE' stamp shows a conversion date of 1889, if I am correct.
    Unfortunately, Don Bubbazino got his mitts on it. Horrible uneven hacksaw job on the barrel. I am contemplating crowning it and doing a pseudo-carbine job on it. Something peppered the heck out of the butt as well.
    These are, in my opinion, very elegant weapons. They certainly stand out in a crowd. I think this old veteran deserves a little attention.

    Anzac15, wow they really worked on that one but I think it can be made to work. I have one made in 1874 that is up and shooting.

    today I finished the front sight conversion as the factory sights were crude. Below is what I did today.
