No, I did not have to change out my factory front sight. The Bullseye sight sits as low as the factory sight. In fact at 25 yards I had to raise the rear Bullseye sight about 2 or 3 notches don't remember exactly. I have an Evil Roy in 22lr. coming in today and another Bullseye sight coming in on Saturday for it. I will also let you know if I have to change the front sight out on that one but I don't think so. Just put one on my Winchester Model 61 yesterday also. Did not change the front sight out. It looks close to the factory sight although I have not taken it out to sight in as of yet. Working 10 hour days and no range time during the week.

But again on my Big Boy classic I did not have to replace the front sight. The model I bought was LONG base ( 2.75" OAL ) and six-position step elevator
Model # 006951
that’s adjustable in .030" increments for precise elevation settings.

Thank you GFK.

It does shoot very well. I'm a huge 22 fan and after buying this and getting the stock and rifle the way I like it. I ended up buying a Evil Roy 22lr. should be here around Thursday I hope. 13" LOP should be ok but I can always cut it down another half inch if needed. But it should be good to go. I will have to take the finish off the stock though. :)
The youth stock will also fit the ER.

Well my Evil Roy did come in and the LOP is not 13" it is more like 13.75" LOP. So I will be cutting it down. Don't think I will be able to keep the Evil Roy signature because of the LOP I will be taking it down to. But that is ok because I do not like the finish on the stock and intend to strip it off and refinish it anyway and the Evil Roy really means nothing to mean but the style of the rifle. Which is why I bought it anyway.
