    1" scopes available ?

    Just hoping to pick the brains of you specialists out there, I have Heym .270 with Apel swing off mounts, Schmidt and Bender 6x42 German 1" tube, my eyes are struggling a bit now and want to up my magnification, was looking at S and B 8x56 but they are 30 mm tube hence needed new mounts etc on top , been told minox variable are 1" tube so will save me buying rings and mounts , any other scopes you know of with 1" tubes ??

    Oh bugger really, just have conversation with gunshop and he thought 8x56 Hungarian were 30 mm . I'm sorted then thanks

    That is a gunshop to avoid then as it is either manned by a halfwit or someone who has a 30mm S&B he wants to sell and will spin you a line to make the sale! Take a look, note there is a 30mm and a 1"

    You can get a set of 30mm rings for your bases and shop for a second-hand 30mm scope.

    This is not what you are asking, but the Leupold VX3 3-9x50 and the Burris 4.5-15x42 are one-inch scopes with glass that will surprise you. They are very sturdy, and lifetime warranty. for really long range, and once you pass 10x, the parallax adjustment comes into play.

    I'd put a 6-18x50 Meopta Meopro on it.
    450, no new mounts, good glass and a choice of magnification depending on what you're using the rifle for.

    I have a Kahles CL 4-12x52 1" tube and a Kahles KXi 3.5-10x50 1" tube.

    He had to measure them!
    Wasn't it apparent to him just by looking at either the scope or the markings on the box if it were a new scope?
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
