Basically, if you are shooting NRA Bullseye or moderate target shooting they work great. If you shoot USPSA or your idea of a good hour of shooting is 500 rounds, they don't work so well.
That doesn't happen with mine, but then again, I fitted mine correctly for an sd gun. .

I hate to say this because I had a lot of respect for Bill Ruger, his designs and his capacity to build pretty good guns at a reasonable cost ... but since he passed away, the company has gotten MUCH better.
No more of this "guns the size of canned ham" stuff.
No more of this "we won't build scary-looking guns" crap.
No more of this "our guns have only 10-round magazines!" nonsense.

Ruger also used to have a bad habit of not selling their full line to civilians.

Here are my two (for a long time they were my only two) favorites:



The one on top is a circa 1972 left-handed Remington 1100 in 12 gauge, which came with the 26" skeet barrel and a low ventilated rib. My Dad gave it to me when I was 12 years old, and boy howdy, was I one happy 12 year old!

At the time, it sported a cut-down "youth" sized stock in addition to the full sized stock, and it instantly became my best friend every weekend when we'd go to the range. As I started shooting trap, continental trap, duck-tower, 5-stand and sporting clays with my Dad, we quickly realized I needed more options in the choke department (especially for the long shots) so he had screw-in choke tubes installed at about the same time I needed the full-size stock. With the turn of a wrench, I could go from cylinder bore to extra-full along with everything in between and was ready for just about anything...

7,500+ rounds, countless broken clays, a bunch of bagged pheasants and many years of fun later, it's still a great shotgun and I don't think I'll ever replace it with anything else. It's been almost 100% reliable (the only malfunction I've ever had was one FTE, and I believe it was ammunition related) and besides cleaning and changing the gas seal o-ring a time or two, it's needed nothing. Long story short, that's why "I LOVE THIS GUN!"

Below it is my first rifle, a circa 1975 Winchester Model 94 .30-30 carbine. It's got a few add-ons, like a KICK-EEZ butt pad (makes shooting full-house .30-30s from the bench a joy), a stick-on 1/4" neoprene pad to raise the comb a bit, a hammer-spur, a Williams receiver/peep-sight, a flip-up Ruger 10/22 blade sight (for back up) in the original sight's dovetail and an old Redfield Sourdough Patridge front sight up front. It's spent most of it's life in a scabbard, and has quite a bit of wear on the receiver, but fits me perfect and is my "go-to" gun.

Even though it's been overshadowed by countless other cartridges, it's still hard to beat a .30-30!

Man, I need to get that Williams sight on my 30-30. Hadn't heard of them until a couple month ago, and now every lever gun I see has one!

I put a receiver peep on my Marlin 30-30, tellin you what it makes it a whole new rifle. Those buckhorn factory rear sights should be illegal.

What did you do about the front sight and the brass bead? This is my biggest concern right now. Now that I'm handloading for this rifle, I'd really like more adjustability to the sights.

Nice rifle!

Just so you know, this model is actually named Gunsite, after the training facility that's about a half hour away from where I live.

I stuck a peep on my 94 yesterday. I also removed the rear stock sight. I like the idea of a fold down rear sight, I may have to do that. I was just going to fill the dove tail with a plug.

Curious, does that rifle use either AR10 or, better, M14/M1A magazines, or are they proprietary Ruger mags? I suspect the latter.....

I put one on my Marlin after bumping my scope and missing the biggest buck I've seen in the woods. I won't be shooting to 100 yard with it, but with the big fiber front dot and fiber in the peep, it's super easy to line up when the light is fading.
