April 15th Buy a Gun Day or better yet, Upgrade a Gun Day!

I'm all for buying a new gun, but I don't think I can get a new gun purchase pass the wife or check book right now. I'm sure many of you are in the same position, but fret not! You can spend half of what you might have on a new gun and upgrade/improve an existing one.

I am currently adding a rail onto my Marlin 1895 Guide Gun. My hope is to mount some sort of optic to it before deer season. Whether it will be a scope or a red dot I haven't decided. I'm mounting the XS Sights' Lever Rail; the same rail found on Marlin's 1985SBL. My rifle already has a ghost ring sight, so I don't need the full length of the rail. I will be "chopping" it down to suit my needs.

If you already have some money saved up or are waiting on that tax return; remember you don't have to buy another safe queen. Go out and buy some parts that will make the trigger on old faithful smoother, a new stock that will make her look new, or a new optic that will give your eyes and rifle a better chance of hitting its mark. It might be the best investment you make this fiscal year.


UPDATE: Lever Rail Install Complete
