i do have the xs ghost sights with rail on that 1895 levergun. i currently run a trijicon accupoint on a adm qd mount with the irons as backup. i didnt have it ready for deer season this past year but its going to tejas next december for the hunt.
this setup reaches easily out to 300yards with the scope or 150ish with the irons.
no reason you cant effectively meld old and new for a very effective and versatile hunting rifle.
