Well I didn't need it, but I bid on and won an XS rail off E-bay for $30 delivered. I was able to get it installed this afternoon. This was my open sights gun of choice, but now maybe I'll add a scout scope. Anyway here she is. A before and a couple after pics. Rail doesn't interfere with the XS sights at all.

OK Thanks, I know what a scout scope is, I have one on my 45-70. I was just curious i that one of yours had long eye relief. Thanks

Either scope could work on my GBL with XS scout mount. Freedom Scout has more eye relief and is brighter with larger objective but less field of view than standard Freedom scope.

Sorry guys, but that just looks wrong.
But I might be in the minority.

well I decided against another scout scope. No real need for a 450 and a 45-70 scout rifle, so I brought the 450 back to just open sights. Look a little more sleek this way. XS rail put away for maybe another rifle another day
