Traded for a 336 30/30 at the last gun show. Thought it would make a great project. Refinished the stock and ordered a XS scout lever mount. Also grabbed a set of peep sights. Turned out good. I like the scout concept. This makes my second scout build. The xs mount took a little fitting to make it set right on the barrel. It mounts to the front scope mounts and to a replacement block you drift in to the rear sight dovetail. I am pleased with the look and the handling. Now just have to sight in the new irons and the scope. Ready for Catoosa with this bad boy. Probably make a good hog gun too...

Actually, you would be surprised at how easily you would adjust. My first scope mounted gun was an Ithaca 37 featherlight 12ga. setup with a slug barrel and Luepold 2x scope (mounted on the barrel)

Basically the same as shooting a scope mounted pistol (same scope)Extended eye relief, just steadier.

The only drawback is the small optics avalible for that type of setup.
