Looks like a great little hog or varmit gun to me, but seems to be missing the top rail for optics or night vision. Having a stock that you can adjust means being able to make the gun more compact when you need it to be or stretched out when you need it to be. A full draw length stock can be cumbersome in some stands and more difficult to use from some prone positions where a shorter stock would be more beneficial. It can be hard to hold a light in one hand and run a rilfe in the other when night hunting.
XS Sights had announced a tri-rail for the Marlin 1895 a few years ago, but it never made it to market and I was disappointed.
