greetings gents. new to your web sight. but i've been shooting blackpower since the '80's. i have a CVA .54 cal. mountain rifle and a trade gun (perdoselli brown bess, 36" barrel)both made from kits.  the trade gun i shoot as a shotgun(no rear sight) the .54 over the years i've had to fatten up the front blade and widden the buckhorn sight to keep up with my old man eyes. i was recently given a .58 cal zouave. i never thought i' want another muzzle loader 'cause the 2 i had were so much fun. but this zouave is a HOOT!! had to revise the front blade and reposition the back notch to get it to shoot for me. then i got thinking. i'd seen modern in-line CVA rifles with fiber optic sights that looked pretty sweet. so now i'm leaning to put fiber optic sights on the zouave. i know its not traditional, but it is practical, and old muzzle loaders were nothing but practical guys. so i'm looking around for sights that would be copisetic for my project.  any one out there preformed this kind of surgery before or have any imput as to which are quality sights. if i could find sights with a steel base, i guess i could silver solder'em on myself. i've seen some with alumium bases that that would need drilling and taping the barrel. i know a gun smith that could handle that, but thats not my 1st choice. i thank you ahead of time for any info my might have and for finding this web site.            johnta
