I looked around the forum to see if there were any directions on removing the rear sight and installing the Hi-Point scope on my new 995TS. Having found none, I assume this is a simple process with two or is it three screws removed.

No need to respond to this, unless I am missing something.

I think it really is that simple
Been a long time since I did it, but if I can figure it out, anybody can :mrgreen:

Take the sheet metal cover off the receiver and it's obvious and easy.

If just removing the rear site just remove the elevation screw and 3 other screws (allen wrench).

Yep, easy.

But as a new user of the 995TS, I am having second thoughts about mounting the factory scope. Looking through it and comparing it with the sight pattern of the iron rear sight leaves me with some doubt that this was a good move. The factory installed rear sight was slick. Still there are advantages to a scope when shooting out 50 yards or more.

In a perfect world.

The $29.99 Truglo I got at Cabelas is great. Took off the rear sight, mounted the Red Dot, raised the front sight to co-witness the dot.

Chewed the center out of the ring with 10 rounds of 124 NATO with my glasses on. Slight adjustments to elevation and windage put the dot on the post at 20 yards.

So simple even a Caveman can do it!

The magnification of a red dot is a wonder for old eyes. First time I've used one.

Best $30 bucks I've spent.
