I couldn't say if they are connected in any way, but Kimber's manufacturing facility is in NY. Grizzly Customs is in MT.

BTW, that top rail on that Grizzly gun is the same unit as the one I put on my Marlin above.

It loads rounds like the marlin, 16.5 inch barrel, but then it kinda strays off the reservation after that.

The problem with that Mossberg is being seen in public with it. I wouldn't be able to show up at any range where either AndyC or my son are present....... I'd never be able to live it down.

It's ugly like homemade soap.

I caught it when I was 14 or 15 and Dad gave me a Model 60. Wish I still had that one, but it was stolen a couple decades back when we were moving from San Marcos to Austin.

Only issue that I've had on my new production rifles is the barrel on my 1894 is clocked improperly. Missed it when I was looking over the rifle at purchase. I only really noticed it after adding the scope mount. Mainly a cosmetic issue especially since it wears a little 4x scope to help out my eyes. Shoots just fine.

My 1895 and little bolt action .22 are both fine rifles and came off the new lines without any issues that I can find.

Barrel clocking seems to be a chronic issue with early remlins. The front sight is usually OK, but it is the rear sight that is typically canted to the right. Of course I'll examine the rifle before leaving with it, but I'm eliminating that by possibility anyway getting rid of the OEM rear sight and substituting a sight rail and a rear peep sight.

Is your peep sight going to be a receiver mount or tang mount?

Receiver mounted. I'm looking at either the rail-mounted ghost ring sight like the one from XS Sight Systems I pictured above a few posts up, OR, a Skinner rear sight.

I have the XS on my 1895CB.

If they got rid of the cheesegrater fore-end, I'd like that. Wonder if the rail can be had separately....
