Scope recomendations

Postby E1957T » 23 Apr 2018 19

I just got another 92. This one is a 20" blued rifle in 45 colt. The gun came with a rail on it and I had a pistol scope around so I thought I was all set. The scope is to long and covers the action, bummer. So what is a good unit to buy that won't break the bank and will let me group them at 100 yards? I am a woodchuck hunter and would like to give this rifle a try at them.

I think you'll hear a lot of votes for the Weaver Classic K4 4x28, and I wouldn't disagree. Most of the scout scopes (my Swift included) are 2 to 2.5X. Woodchuck thoracic cavities are pretty small at 100 yards. I think you'd need a variable to go higher than 4X. I think there's a Vortex and a Barska 2-7.

I think the Weaver will have the finest wire you will find on a scout scope. I've tried the Bushnell 2-7 Scout, but it has a fairly heavy duplex so no win with the magnification. I think they will cover up a chuck.

I found some weaver classic scopes on ebay that would fit my need. I have tried to bid on them and I get the warning about restricted item and can't ship out of country and it will not let me bid. Has anybody else ran into this on ebay? I have bought scopes before with no troubles and some of the handgun scopes I can place a bid on but not the ones I want. Maybe NY is now a new nation, the city should be.

I just did this past week. I wanted to bid on a Weaver 2-7X32 and it would not accept my bid with the same issues you had. Used Weavers of current manufacturer are selling for almost the same as new retail so I will just buy new in the future.

Sounds as if ebay is trying to mess with gun related sales.

The seller that had the weaver scope listed checked with ebay. They said they can't ship firearms related stuff to a PO box number. This is the stupid part I don't have a PO box number. I have a 911 house number like all of us. In the mean time I found a nikon monarch ucc 2.5-8x28 hand gun scope. I use a nikon monarch on my 22-250, great scope.

I lost the bids on 2 Leopold EER scopes on eBay last week due to the restriction messages.

Indeed, Nikon makes a nice scope. I hope the eye relief isn't too long for you. Let us know how it works out.

Those eBay folks are a capricious lot. If you think Rossi customer service is bad, try working through a problem with eBay. When they say they're just a venue, they take it to heart. They use that as an excuse to not take responsibility for their own actions. It's not that I don't use them, but I don't expect anything from them, either. I never spend more on eBay than I can afford to lose.

ebay, paypal, 922r and ITAR, not to mention all the silly posterior rules CA has have really mucked up a lot of things related to firearms.
