Thread: Recommendations for fixed power scope

    Recommendations for fixed power scope

    I'm trying to decide on a new fixed power scope for my No1 in rem mag,
    im wanting it to be in keeping with the lines of the rifle so don't really want a massive scope hence why I'm looking at a decent fixed power, nice and simple but up to the job in hand.
    any thoughts great fully received.

    I think a 1in tube and 42mm or less objective goes nicely on falling blocks, so I would look at
    S&B 10x42 Klassik (available as a 1in tube version)
    S&B 6x42 Klassik (available as a 1in tube version)

    But some of the 1in variables are also nice and compact and would work nicely with a No1
    Swarovski Z3 3-9x36
    Swarovski Z3 3-10x42
    S&B Summit 2.5-10x40

    Leupold also make some reliable 1in tube fixed and variable scopes too.

    Weaver K4 and K6 are good, solid scopes.
    Meopta 6x44 and Leupold 6x42 are about the only other ones we can get in the US - both excelent.

    If you want high power, look at the Bushnell 10x42 Mil Dot scope with turrets made for the US Army, $210 USD here. Very clear, with the advantage of dots for ranging.

    s&b 8x56 or a swarzy 8x50 .......

    6 x 42 x 1" tube every day and all day.
    Any larger magnification will lose you light and any larger occular will sit high above the rifle.
    That is not gospel, that is my offer of advice based on over sixty years of playing with alsorts of scopes/sights with mistakes and experience.

    Something in 4X. I've owned No1's and anything with a large objective looks out of place. I shoot 4X to 300 yards with no issues. A fixed six or eight power would be too much glass for my kind of shooting. How are you going to shoot it off hand?? I'd be fighting it.~Muir
