XS sighting system/Marlin 1895


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


My is the big loop gbl and I am looking at the xs full rail c/w peep sight and heightened front sight. Does anyone have experience with this system no drilling or tapping required and I can remove the scope with quick release rings and not lose poi.I use a scout scope.Anybody out there?

.

I used the XS LeverScout mount, ever since it was first introduced over 10 years ago - and IMO, it's lived up to it's billing.

You can't go wrong (E-Z-Peazy).

I used a Weaver Classic 2x28 pistol scope, due to it's eye relief fitting comfortably with my rifle/ergonomics better than the Burris Scout Scope I bought/tried first.

Thanks for the info, I am going to order it today and have the Burris variable and a Weaver 4x scout scopes to choose from. I don't see any negatives about the xs system.

You did not ask about this, but Skinner sights are very good also. Personally, I like the Skinner better because the vertical and windage adjustment on the rear sight use separate screws. Easier to adjust one without messing up the other.

Thanks for the feedback I have heard great things about skinner sights.I did receive the xs kit and installed it last night. Kind of spendy ,but it seems well thought out and made. Easy to install to,they even provide a plastic drift pin to knock out existing sights.Alluminum rail weighs nothing ,elevated front sight and of course the reciever/peep sight.

I have both XS and Skinner. I particularly like the XS front with the white stripe. I have a couple of rifles with the Skinner rear and the XS front. Nothing wrong with the XS as they work well.

The XS system is top notch. I hope you enjoy it. I had the XS Lever Scout Mount on my 336 along with a Williams FP rear and a skinner front sight. Loved that setup.

I have a 39A with a FP rear and a Skinner front sight. I painted the front sight with 3 layers of bright white and 3 layers of fluorescent orange. Even with the Marlin wide-scan hood, it is as bright as I'd ever need a front sight.
