    To clear the objective bell of a scope that you may put on the receivwer, should that be necessary.

      As a "saddle gun" it will slip into and out of the scabbard without snagging if the rear sight is folded flat. Often found in association with a hooded front sight for the same reason. Doesn't look as "westernish" as a buckhorn model with adjusting ramp, but the folding leaf works just fine.

          You might want to install a Skinner peep sight, very nice!
