My only regret is not being able to roll my own loads yet. I foresee a progressive reloading press in my near future. Very happy I found this one, and don't really regret selling off my Rossi to help fund this one.
I never thought of owning one but now I want one so bad.

I just put an xs peep on my 1894. It really aims well but I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. Most people who go that route seem to never look back.

I was looking at the xs peeps, but not sure if I wanted to replace the front sight. I'll have to check them out again. The fit and finish of the wood is phenomenal. The checking is perfect, the finish is beautiful. Was well worth what I paid for it.

Changing the front sight is really easy. Just drift the front post out of the dovetail to access the screw under it. Remove 2 screws and put in 2 new ones. I left the buckhorn barrel sights on mine in the folded position by they sell a blank that you can replace it with. The whole process took less than 10 minutes and I could have it back to the way it was in less than that.
