For the money, there's a lot here: magazine cutoff, detachable trigger group, dovetail groove machined into the receiver, sling-swivel studs, shim-adjustable stock. Also, it's a light gun, perfect for carrying across miles of fields. Downside: Not fun to shoot with 3-inch magnums.

This is one of the subtle differences in the guns that added up: the dovetail groove would accept a base for a dot sight or scope for shooting slugs.
Big advantage for the Escort was its reliable function, of course, but it also shot everything without making a pit stop for a different valve.
Here’s the Escort’s front sight, a plastic tube inserted into a bracket. In low-visibility situations, we noted that it was easier to see than the brass bead on the Weatherby. Note the arched scoring on the rib.
