My XS Scout Scope Rail, 2.5x28 Leupold IER, and my quick detach rings came in today....

Now, all I need is my new glasses so I can SEE TO MOUNT IT! Torture I tell ya!

I'm so darn excited, I can barely wait. It's going on my 336C 30-30. If I am right, this rifle is going to be fast, accurate and more fun than a wet monkey!

I just finished up with cataract surgery on both eyes, and with my new glasses to correct for my astigmatism, I will have 20/20 or better eye sight. This is a baby Jesus miracle to me, since I was crippled before and couldn't even drive to a hunting (or fishing or ??) spot in the dark. ;D

What a blessing!

If you get tired of waiting, I will send you my address and you can mail it to me. I will mount it, sight it, and shoot the crap out of it. I will mail it right back to you after next hunting season.

All for no charge. ;D

Jack, that don't look like no 22 in your avatar! What is that the new remington version 39A? I'm headed for the surgery in a few years I was just told. My wife helps with the surgery (not mine I hope) Good luck on your recovery TS, hope it's quick. It's shootin time.

I had double cataract surgery about 10 years ago, and what a difference it made. It was, as they say, just like a miracle. I hope you are as pleased with your results as I was. You will be shooting in a few days after the surgery. I wish you all the best.

TS, I'm glad to hear that your surgery went went well, and I hope you have a very speedy recovery.

Since I am diabetic, I regularly worry about my eyesight, but, so far, I'm doing pretty well for an old codger, no surgery needed yet. The old orbs are not as sharp as they used to be, but I've got nothing to complain about, knock on wood.

JT , that is the only live ninety m/m that is in civilian hands in this country . Brother fired it at Knob creek and I got a few photos . Odd thing is the ammo boxes were clearly marked 106mm ???

Just took OFF the XS scout scope setup off my win 94 30/30. Just couldn't QUITE get used to it 'cause the scope was just a wee bit too high as compared to the Williams FP receiver sight. YMMV
