Are easy are the adjustments?


I've got XS peep sights on both my 1895 and 1894. The 1895 has the winged sights and 1884 doesn't. To be honest, the sight picture (at least to me) about the same between two. The wings may help focus your eyes better and cut down on some glare but I wouldn't say that there's a huge difference.

The adjustments to zero are a little fussy since you need a screwdriver to loosen the windage screws and the post of the ring slides somewhat loosely within the track; however, the zero seems to hold as long as you tighten down the screws properly.
