Well, broke down and picked up this little gem;



Contemplating what glass to put on it. Thinking a 3-9 X 50 would be a bit much. Maybe a 1-4 Trijicon Accupoint would go well. My primary use will be white tail at 150 or less (mostly under 100).

That and just plain old plinking.

Doc

Oh yeah, anyone have a place to look for an extra mag or two?

Very nice rifle......I would go for a 2x7 Leupold or something along those lines for that baby.....!

2 words ,integrally suppressed, very quiet.

I think your best bet for the mags would be Ruger, or possibly CDNN.

A straight 4x. Should be more than enough for 150 yards. In my opinion most people over scope rifles.

1-4 Trijicon would perfect for it. I've been thinking of scoring one of these for whitetail in brush and hog hunting.

I'd go for something in the 1-4x range with an illuminated reticle (we can hunt hogs at night).

Correct about overscoping,lots do it for lazy sighting in,buy a spotting scope for that,a 3X ought to do it for that .44 round that drops 6" from a 50 yard zero.I shoot silhouette firing on targets from 200 to 500 meters and I got a 10x and is great at all the distances and no shakes either

My only issue with a 4x fixed is there are times when that is too much on a rifle like this. I would go with a VXII 1-4X or maybe even a FXII 2.5x Ultralight.

Hows the trigger on that good looking rifle ???
Link Posted: 7/5/2010 3:46:48 AM EDT
Look into the Weaver V3. It's 1x-3x and a very clear piece of glass-can often be found for $125 or so.

That's what I did

300 grain XTP bullets & WW296 powder make a great 100 yard whitetail load.

That's what I was thinking

22mike,

Sorry for the delay, trigger is great. Haven't measured it, but probably 4-5 lb range and real clean and crisp. I would prefer a bit lighter, but it is very clean, so no problem.

I'd go with a low power variable. Something along the lines of a 1-4x or similar.
Link Posted: 9/2/2010 7:22:49 AM EDT
In my Deerfield (semi 44 mag carbine) I use a VXI 2-7. I like it alot. My other choice would be a 2.5 fixed.
Link Posted: 9/2/2010 8:38:34 AM EDT
Weaver 4x or a 1-3x.
Link Posted: 9/2/2010 9:44:58 AM EDT
Put a 1.5x6 on it or a shotgun scope in 1x4..I got on my old .44 Ruger semiauto the 1x4 and the 96/44 lever the 1.5x6
Link Posted: 9/9/2010 8:11:01 PM EDT
When I hunt deer in timber I prefer a 3-9 power scope. If I don't take binoculars a 9 power is appreciated for spotting deer coming in and I've never had a shot so close that a 3 power was too much.

I put a sear in my 77/22 and the difference is night and day. I think they are fairly cheap, around $40.
