    Might anyone know off hand what that measurement is? I'm not near my home and I'm playing with a ballistics calculator on Excel. (shh. don't tell my boss)

    Best I can get with a cheap combo square is between 36 & 37 mm. Call it 36.5. That puts the center of the glass in my optic @ ~94-95 mm/ 3.7".

    The new trajectory graph shows sighting 1.3" high @ 25yd should check at ~ 3"-3.2" high @ 40yd (the other mid distance at my range). That should put me on paper @100yd.

    Anything look super off to anyone?

    Found "Point Blank". Stand alone with roughly the same input param's.

    Basically same results so I think I'm good to go. Now just wait till I can get off to go to the range on a week day (taking vacation the week of Labor Day). Weekends at my range can get crowded.

    Sorry, I was in the barn for a long time!
    I have a 4595, I could have checked...
    Sights are TALL! How far above the rail is the mid range of the
    sight adjustment? I have an eye on some low-profile rear sights,
    which would allow dropping the front a good bit, maybe .25" :confused:

    Looks like a good project, GCG!

    If the height proves to be an issue I'll have lose the factory sights and go with the Longshot full top rail and after market BUIS. Then I could probably drop the glass down .75" and sight through but lose some sight radius. Cost ~$100 - $120

    another option is this:

    from Peck's Anyware. It'll line up with an after market rear sight (they claim)Total cost ~$65 - $85 and you keep the full sight radius.

    Well I went a different direction and bought a scope off Amazon. Pretty decent reviews and the price wasn't bad (<$60). I know I should have shot it first with the irons but I wanted to try it at 100 and 200 yards and for me that meant a scope. It's a 2.5-10x 40mm, plenty bright view, illuminated recticle, with a laser for CQB. If the laser fails it'll work fine @2.5 for uninvited meet & greet duties. Based on the reviews it should hold up to what little recoil the xx95's have. I'm happy to be the lab rat on that one.

    Some pic's:

    Darn SWEET! I'm hoping to use this:

    with THIS see-thru base:

    Got all the parts, but I will have to measure CAREFULLY, and cut down and
    maybe even re-tap the front post sight. No biggie, I can handle that! :D ;)
