Short eye relief scope

Postby shenko on Wed Nov 14, 2012 4:02 pm

Hi, guys.

I'm looking for a scope with short eye relief.
Have a 22. Have a centerfire Weaver V9 on it, but can't move it as far forward as I want. Could go with extended rings, but a smaller scope with shorter eye relief would be a cleaner solution. It wouldn't have to be a real good scope, since this is pretty much a fair-weather plinker.
Any ideas? Maybe there's something that other people complain about because the eye relief is too short?

Hi Shenko. I'm sure you know that a short eye relief means an inexpensive scope, with few exceptions. I've never looked for a scope purposely that has a short eye relief. Try the NcStar Tactical Series 3-9x42. It has about a two inch eye relief. It will be a useable product for your application. The old Beeman Short Scopes had only about two inches also, and a small field of view, but were quality products. You may be able to find one used at an auction site. ACOGs also have about two inches of eye relief, and maybe some of the Chinese knock-offs would work if you can find one with a proper sized mount for your .22. We don't sell the knock-offs. Maybe at an airsoft site. Hope the NcStar works for you.

Hi, Steven.
I see those NcStars are airgun rated, so I could always use it on something.

Thanks.

Well, I thought on it.
Ordered a Weaver 4X28.
