H&R Sharps Carbine

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I recently purchased an H&R replica of the Sharps 1873 LBH carbine in 45-70. I can't sight it in at close range, 40 yards. It shoot high, but when I lower the peep, the trapdoor gets in the way before its on. The windage is fine. Any suggestions?
