Well I bought a scope today for my 1894-44mag. I looked at Nikon, Redfield and Leupold. I went with the Leupold in V-1 with 2x7x33. It looks nice and trim on the rifle. I had Millet steal scope rings in low and with the base looks real good. The only problem I had is that the scope hung up for a few shots until I figured out what it was doing. I few gentle taps with a very small rubber mallet [ the mallet size at the tip is the size of a nickle]. The scope responded and its sighted in at 50 yards dead on. Now firearm dear season is 6 weeks away! I will go to the range a few more times for practice. I'm really liking this rifle the more I shoot it!
