Went to the outdoor range with my new 1895GS:

Optics - 66 yo eyes, Pearle Vision no line tri-focals

Sights - factory buckhorns

Position - seated, elbows on bench

Load - Remington factory 405 grain SP

First target ( 25 Yds )



Fourth target ( 25 Yds )



Shot 19 rounds, gun functioned well and I was greatly pleased with this purchase. The recoil was no problem, but I've never had any problems with any guns in that department.

The front sight covered the entire circle in that last target.

Nice shooting. I always enjoyed shooting my 45/70's.

Looks like you had great fun there Athanasor...my advice would be to ditch those factory Buckhorns and you'll see just how really good you can shoot! ;)

Athanasor Rem 405 is a mild load. Winchester 300gr black box will hit you harder :)

Looks like you had fun. I am no expert here, but if you try placing your desired point of bullet-impact on top of the front site post as if it were sitting on a shelf, you might find it easier to maintain a more consistent sight picture. Either way have fun with it.
