Only problem is I never considered the lens dia because I thought the rings would be high enough to clear the irons. And I guess they do , barely. I have like a 3mm sight picture on the irons because of the lens dia hahahah . Only thing I don't like is the eye relief on the scope isn't all that great . So I just moved the scope back a bit more than I would have liked and its ok now.
I might just sell the scope and put the $$ towards a 3-9x38 or something similar.
Looks good though aye? I know a lot of purists will think I ruined the guns asthetics and to a point I agree but I really dig the rings so I think it looks pretty trick .
Ok , I may ditch the scope altogether. I apologize to all . looking at the front sight from the top you can clearly see the dove tail lip coming up over the sight by the way.
So I'm thinking williams fool proof peep sight and williams front fire site combo might be more what I need
My neck hurts just looking at it. I guess you would call me a purist but I love my peep sight and front sight. I had a red front sight but it didn't show up in low light so I went to white and a little lower. (guess I didn't measure well)
The one thing I did wrong was I listened to my gunsmith and went w the cheaper peep sight. I have to loosen screws, move the sight and then tighten them. His point was you only have to do this once, 30-30s don't move a lot.
I w rather just move a adj dial for windage n elevation. I like to hear the clicks. The new fire sights look great but I prefer green when it comes to fiber optics.
IMHO - peep sights are faster on target. As I get older, the Deer seem to be getting faster except the ones who walk around in my yard as if they own it.
