From the centerline of the bore to the centerline of the sights.

thanks cpt, that is what I thought but wanted to make sure and I knew this was the place to ask.

The best way to do it as Tango said, is to run a cleaning rod down the bore and measure from the cleaning rod to the front sight minus 1/2 the cleaning rod's diameter. measuring rear sights are a little more involved due to the tapering barrel.
