Well I can't seem to post the image from my IPad but that link should take you. I ended up mounting the scope. Looks pretty good I think. Not a fan of the hard to open model but well see how it shoots. What y'all think? Maybe someone can be so kind as to post the image for me. Thanks

The 30-30 barrel I bought last year had that same front sight. As it is very different from the factory sights on my .223 and .35 Remington S14 barrels, I assumed it was a rifle sight someone "made work" on the barrel.
30-30 is a hoot in a handgun! If you ar going to reload 30-30, I would suggest you look at the lee neck sizing collet die eventually. The only difference I noticed when switching was not having to lube the cases to neck size.
Here is something I've been wrestling with: if I start reloading 30-30 ammo, should I also have it rechambered to the AI version? It'll still fire standard round, but allow a good boost for reloads.
Here's my $0.02 Others can chime in on the value gained from the AI version, but part of the answer depends on what bullet you want to shoot. I shoot the Barnes black tipped TAC-TX bullet designed for the 300BO (110 but 120gn also available). The low suggested velocity required for 2x expansion on impact (1450fps) means that I have a much farther effective range determined by bullet function (~400 yards) with my 14" contender setup then I am comfortable shooting. The extra recoil and powder needed would not give me any added advantage on deer or moderate sized hogs. I backed off velocity to get better accuracy.
