Jeff Cooper was against it but if you suck at shooting iron sights go for it.
Skinner sights has some really nice rear peep sight set-ups for lever rifles for those with buckhorn sights.
XS has some options as well IIRC. One of the bigger names in SASS used to use a lever action with a big dot and Xpress sights from XS.
You could do the same with the Big Dot sight from them as well.

Don't have any pictures, but I have a question.What are you trying to accomplish?

Scout scope or switching out a few different scopes for different purposes ?

If none of the above why not just a regular mount and rings ?

I do but don't have pics handy. Mine is the rifle version though not a guide gun. I used the XS systems Lever rail and have a Leupold 1-4 with QD rings so I can get to my irons easily.

I have a Remlin 1895GBL I bought with intention of putting a full XS rail onto and then getting either a 1-4x or 2-7x extended eye relief scope for.... so tag for interest. Seems like with a ching type sling it could make one heck of a brush / woodland hunting arm.

(full disclosure... i also have an antique 1895 that will remain as I found it with the Lyman Peep Sight and a JM era 1895 that shall retain irons as well)

What scope is that? I have a homeless 1-4x from Primary Arms I might toss on... Got a spare Large mount also.

I am going to have an uber-tactical 1895.. At least until I come to my senses and track down a nice scout scope.

I mounted the scope forward like a scout scope to avoid recoil and make it balance.

I have used a 1X4 on a Guide Gun as well as a 50 BeoWulf, its a good setup and is very fast.
