1895 Marlin XS Front & Rear sights, Lever Rail

Jul 26, 2011 No Comments by

Many, many thanks for the sight.  They are on my 1985 Marlin .45-70, and perfect.  I have found that the .45-70 can be quite versatile.  I shoot round balls for fun and they are also OK for small game.  Up to a 500-grain solid for anything in Africa.  At 1,800 feet per second, I have no fear of big game on the Dark Continent.

The rifle has taken Cape buffalo with my clients in Africa and I added a very old cow Cape buffalo to my wall with a 430-grain factory load from Buffalo Bore Ammunition.

At this point, with your sights, I will carry the rifle into dark timber for elk and bear hunting.

So again, thanks.  As ever,
