I have an M4M-D I bought a few months ago that is almost a decade newer. It seems to be fine on a .22- very good resolution for a small tube scope.

For the Sharps, I think I'd want something a little stronger built- what cal. is yours?

BTW, the old Malcolm scope is being reproduced- might be a little more "era correct" for your Sharps...

Scroll down the page about halfway past the 2 modern scopes. There are several pictures of the new "Malcolm"

I don't think the little M-4 would stand much of the 45-70's recoil. It was designed for a .22 rimfire.

Might be an idea to look for a used brass tube repro sight- Tasco had a run of these early 90's- late 80's in two lengths. One of the fella's here on M/O collector's page has one on a Remington Hepburn, and it seems to work well- I'll see if I can dig up the info from old posts....

Edit: Here's a link to an old thread on this subject....
