  1. New Here/Hand Gun Optic

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hi there! Just ordered my 1895SBL and am considering putting a Leupold FXII 4X28 on it with medium rings. Is this a bad idea? I saw something about 18" of eye relief which seems like it could be manageable but I have no idea. Appreciate any help.

    TEAM 1894
    Hi guys. I need some advice for a scope for my new 1894c. I will be shooting from 50 - 150 yards.

    Optics Discussion Forum
    I bought a VX-3L that was on a 30-06. The reticle failed after a couple of years. It was repaired in Sept 2013 and I had to return it again in 2016. They could not repair it and since it was not made anymore; they offered me a "custom shop" VX-3i. It was made in Dec 2016 and shipped to me...
  4. Leupold PRW Rings on Ranger Point Precision Base. Are they sitting correctly?

    Optics Discussion Forum
    Hey all! So I'm going to through the process of buying my very first scope-mounting setup (on my 336). As an engineer, I'm not totally satisfied with the way the rings sit on the base. Is it sitting correctly? Will that bottom lip hold well enough? Is it ok that the base isn't exactly parallel...

  7. Leupold Scout Scope - custom turret caps

    I am currently setting my 1895 45-70 for a scout set up. I have a xs lever rail and sights along with a VXII Scout Scope with QRW rings. My question is this, I would like to fit my new scout scope with a custom elevation turret. Any recommendations? I sent Leupold an email asking this...
  8. How low can you go?

    After reading and searching many posts, I still did not know for sure whether I could mount my new Redfield Revolution 2-7 with low Leupy QRW rings without removing rear factory irons. I may never need to remove this scope but I would like to have the option. I went to a local gun store/deer...
