    Long eye relief traditional scope?

    Can anyone recommend a long eye relief traditional scope? I am trying to avoid a scout scope for the time being because of the narrow field of view. I found a bushnell banner with 6 inches of eye relief but it is a 3-9x40. I would prefer a low power scope for my GS. I have the full rail on mine with ghost ring sights and would like to leave them on without mounting any super-high rings. Any suggestions would help but need to stay under $200.

    I don't think 6" of relief is going to let you leave your peep sight on. I would think that would put the scope around flush with the back of the receiver right? Maybe I'm wrong. If you want to leave the peep on, you're options are pretty limited.

    Nikon makes a 3x9 scope that has at least 5" of eye relief at all magnification settings. The one I have on my .45-70 Ruger No.1 is their Omega model from a few years ago. Currently these are known as their INLINE XR scopes -
