    Schmidt and bender

    Hi, hope this is the right section just bought a german 8x56 schmidt, i thought i had nothing better to do than take my meopta 7x50 1" tube off and fit it, the thing is it would not fit so i went and bought a set of 30mm mounts got them today and they were massive, is the schmidt a 1" tube or slightly more?
    Regards Neil

    Is it a 26mm scope ? 1" equates to 25.4mm so the two do not normally fit in the same size rings, Optilocks being one of the exceptions.

    I was under the impression the schmidt came in both 25mm and 30mm tubes so would of thought you had the 30mm although may be wrong.

    Older scopes were 26mm rather than 1".

    This was bought privately as a 1" but i think its a 26mm,How old were they as this ls like brandnew?

    I don't know when they stopped importing the 26mm scopes but it was quite a few years ago.

    1" optilocs will do the job. Have had then fitted to a 6x42 schidt with the 1" tube.

    The S&B 8x56 is a 26mm tube. They are still available new. Usually, they are a steel tube, not aluminium as the variable scopes.

    I had a Hungarian 8x56 that was a 26mm tube. I bought it new maybe 12 years ago. A set of 1" rings may well damage it.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    You could lap the 1inch rings but dont take to much off. You want a snug fit
