Hello Paul,

You should slug the barrel as the bores are not all exactly the same in these old guns and you will want the most accuracy you can get if you are going to hunt with it. The chamber should be cast also for proper measurement. In most guns the 45/70 is just a little too long and sometimes the rim might be a little too thick.
I know of no windage adjustment rear sight for these but perhaps you can find one from a different gun that can be made to fit into the existing base without modifying the original sight.
