Trying to guess what will fit is getting me nowhere, so thought I'd ask what others have.
I have a S&B 6x42 on my 527 with medium Warne rings, scope sits nice and close and the famous bolt handle just clears the ocular bell. Problem is the eye relief,I just cant get it right. If I put my Leupold 6x42 on it, again it sits nice and close, eye relief is perfect but the bold handle hits the bell. S&B bell is 38.2 mm, the Leupold is 39.5 mm so not much in it.
So, I'm looking for another scope, don't want bigger than a 42mm objective (looks silly on the wee 527) 1" tube, and a bit more magnification. Seen some pretty neat looking Minox and Bushnell scopes online but what will fit ?
I'm not really after scope reviews, I'd rather know what other 527 owners have fitted, with the standard bolt handle. (bolt sculpture or a Calhoun replacement is the next step, but thought I'd ask first)
