    Yes lever gun lock. Didn't like the big clunky one it came with...weighted more than the gun.

    CarpNY, having the rail already and the nicer XS sights was hoping to keep both. These rings were the lowest I could find and still keep the XS. They just clear the ring. Sighted out good and have scope set to 100 yards. So far so good. Looking at an 1895 45.70 next I think. Maybe a dark series version.

    That mount looks great especially for non-rail models. Where can one get one like that? My neighbor might be interested.
    Thanks

    Understandable. I've seen some examples of Leupold 2.5x scout scopes mounted on the XS rail with very low rings, where the bell and eyepiece actually went into the cutouts in the center of the rail. Obviously, that's an either/or (scope or irons) situation, requiring QD rings. It seems like you wanted both available, so your solution is probably the best.

    The mount that I showed was actually a milled out receiver done by Grizzly Customs (great work, much $). They used a receiver-mounted rear ring (in the front location) and a dove-tail mounted front ring (where a rear ladder sight would go):

    Sights and Scope dual use

    This set up allows use of the XS peep sights looking through the scope.....also you can remove the scope and re-attach it without losing zero. XS sight rail, A.R.M.S. low mounts, Leupold 1.5-5 scout scope. I am going to buy a new 1894 and I plan on repeating this same set up that I mounted on my sons 336.
