XS Sights Clifton Scout Mount

I just thought to drop you a line of thanks for your help in getting the optics properly mounted on a pair of rifles I built for my sons. The XS system is the best around, bar none, and with another couple of scout rifle jobs “on deck” your shipping dept will be hearing from me again real soon. One look and some old codger buddies of mine are lining up for one!

The actions on these are Colombian 98’s from the 50’s that i fitted with new mil surp barrels in .30-06 . Wanted these to be guilt-free working rifles so went with plain old ramline drop in stocks that i glass bedded and gussied up a bit with a few coats of flat green camo topped with hard polyurethane dulled down with steel wool – even went so far as to improvise a trap door system on the recoil pads so they can store a few “possibles” in that hollow butt stock : a cleaning kit, few extra rounds, lighter and nice cigar or two would do it for me!

The scopes are (more-than-likely) rinky-dink NCstar 2.5 X ‘s so we’ll see how they stand up as we put a few hundred rounds thru them (actually, they seem pretty decent for around $50 ea) I figure later down the line the boys can spring for a good Burris or Leupold on their own with the money they never spend for fathers day… Now shopping for a good BUIS system for these…guess I’d better check the XS catalog!  Thanks again and keep the boys out in the shop busy!
