OMG, LOL, I have one in .338 Lapua and didn't even recognize it without a real scope (at that angle)!

If one has the money, there is always someone who is willing to take it away.

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.

Default Why? Indeed.

The idea of a rifle/carbine with a usable sighting system is not strange at all. My eyes - as the rest of me - are old enough to make iron sights difficult unless I am wearing my shooting or reading glasses. So a low magnification scope or red dot [sort of arrangement] makes a 'short range' (125 yards or less) long gun very usable.

I cannot see putting a 3x9 - or bigger - variable scope on something like a .30-30 or 7.62x39 caliber rifle/carbine. Likewise, a .30-06 with a red dot arrangement is odd in my mind; UNLESS one is hunting big game in an area where shots over 100 yards are rare to non-existent.

And - I cannot consider putting a cheap ".22 scope" on a good .22 long rifle caliber rifle. One doesn't need a 500 yard scope, obviously, but one desires a good image and sight picture to the range of the caliber.
