    Re: My new 1895 Stainless Guide Gun .45-70 New Pics Up!!!

    wow - that is awesome.

    How did you convert it to to a "Takedown" I didn't know you could do that if it wasn't made that way. ?żż?

    What would happen if one were to put a scout scope on a regular 1886 45-70? Would that sacrilage?


    Really nice gun there - and the carry case is awesome - is that stock or custom made? link?
    BOOM!!!!

    Re: My new 1895 Stainless Guide Gun .45-70 New Pics Up!!!

    Hi,
    I had a custom gunsmith in CO do my conversion for me. Lee Hadaway at thearmsroom.com
    It is pricey at $1,000.00 for the conversion, but is real nice.
    The scout scope set up is great on the guide guns, and would work equally well on yours, but the magnification is only 2.5, so you may want more on a full size rifle. You certainly wouldn't have to ever worry about scope eye though.
    The cases were custom made by a saddle maker also in CO. Mine were the first made in this design, but now Lee is offering them as far as I know. Mine were $300.00 each. I'm sure he will help you out if you contact him. He is a great guy.
    Thanks for the compliments.

    Hey Greg, are your Guide guns using the WWG lever or is it a different make ?

    I like both of yours, the black .450 a tad more.

    Hi Pete,
    Yes they are WWG levers. It is kind of a hard call between the two of them, so I just had to have both. Thanks for the compliments.

    Re: My new 1895 Stainless Guide Gun .45-70 New Pics Up!!!

    WOW!!!

    Thanks for all the compliments on the guns! I thought they turned out real nice and I had a ball building them for Greg.

    One thing though........ I can't believe all the comments about the rear sight being installed backward. Here are the reasons I installed them this way (a couple of y'all hit the nail on the head) -

    1 - By putting the ghost ring 1 1/2" further away from the shooters eye, it tends to be just a bit sharper and doesn't fade out as much.

    2 - It is slightly more protected when mounted (ahem) "backwards"

    3 - It looks better and I like it that way. If you're gonna mount the rear sight flush with the rear of the receiver then mount the front sight flush with the muzzle. But that would look a bit silly wouldn't it?

    LOL!!!

    Thanks again for the compliments! I'm sure Greg, the proud Daddy of these two, turns a lot of heads at the range.

    Later,

    Proud daddy here giving much due credit to "The Maker" Lee Hadaway. These guns are awesome, and very popular.
    It is nothing short of amazing how people react to my twins. I could not be happier with these guys.
    Bye the way, welcome aboard Lee.

    Thanks again,
    Greg
