Added a full length magazine tube and filled the old tube retainer dovetail. Sucked it up and filed the Marbles dovetail filler flush with the barrel. Added a cosmetic dovetail filler where the old rear sight was and added a set of XS sight with the DRC wings. Also removed the crossbolt safety and replaced it with a safety delete. All that's left is to add a Pachmayr Decelerator and have the rifle Shotgun

Looking nice! I love these rifles when the owner does these upgrades. Of course I love all the rifles whether they are upgraded or not..... LOL I think yours looks great!

I really like what you have done. Which model did you start out with? And, where did you get the tube and other parts?
Thanks,

Thanks. I started out with an 1895SS. I got the tube and new spring from Numerich, the safety delete from Beartooth Mercantile, dovetail fillers and XS sight set from Brownells.

Do NOT use a Pacmayr, use a Limbsaver 10003, your arm will thank you.

My Pacmayr is in the trash can somewhere

Ditto on the Limbsaver versus Pachmeyer pad. My experience is the same.

I prefer full length tubes over partial length ones. I've always felt that beautiful 1895SS deserved a full tube on that 22" barrel. Nicely done.

I recently had mine cerakoted and I am extremely pleased with the results. I think that is the best alternative finish to bluing and absolutely more durable.
