Anybody tried any XS stuff like the XS Sight Systems Lever Rail Ghost Ring Sight for Marlin lever guns? I'm interested in their scout-length rail base for my 1895, but I'm not crazy about aluminum. I do like the fact that you can purchase their aperture rear sight.

I'm running a VX-III 1.5-5x20 on a DNZ mount. The DNZ is growing on me. I have not settled on a load yet for the CDS dial. I'd consider the VX-6 1-6x24 and it's generous FOV, if'n I had surplus funds.

Because of my older eyes, body, bones, ect, I took off the XS sight and put on a 4 Power Leupy. I have a 1895, 45/70. I also have a #1 in 45/90, with a 3 Power leupy.

The previous owner had used the orginal screws and a bondo like product to attach the rail. We had to drill out the front screw.

Might you be interested in parting with that XS Ghost Ring Sight that you took off your 1895? I might like to try it out on mine before I go the scope route. Thanks. John

Got her the other day and tricked here out.
Hooked her up with a 2x20 EER Nikon and a Wild West lever.
Now to work up a load.

Here's my 444P with a Leupold M8-4x mounted down low. Just picked it up 2 weeks ago.

I have a handful of Marlins with Leupold 1.5-5x20mm scopes in both VX-III and VX-3 variants. Excellent optics for the money and good enough for the limitations of most big bore calibers.

Right now my GBL just has factory irons....But I'm thinking about going with a Nikon Monarch African 1-4 with the German #4 Reticle...great scope at a great price. It would be the perfect scope for hunting here in Maine. It's either the Monarch or a Skinner Express peep sight.
