Rimfire/Pellet Rifle Scope

Postby longrifleredneck on Thu Dec 20, 2012 6:17 pm

I am looking for a high quality riflescope that is 1. variable power somewhere between 3- 14 power.2.A adjustable objective that will go down to 10 yards.2.An illimunated dot((what color is best against gray) in the center of crosshair.(I am having a hard time seeing the crosshairs on the squirrels head now).(got a eye disease awhile back, did not help my already fading eyesight) I currently have several 3-9 Leupold EFR and they are good.I used to love them, but they lack the Dot. Money is no object. But it must have parallax down to 10 yards, could live with twenty. All of my shots are 10-60 yards, head shots. . It would be nice if you could read the yardage on the AO, Leupolds are very hard to see as well as those on the power ring, and they adjust to hard in my opinion.Would prefer one inch tube since all of my mounts are that, but would consider 30 mm.One of my rifles has very high mounts so a big obj, will work on it, probably the one I use most. Thanks in advance for opinions & have a Wonderful Holiday.

Sorry, don't know of an illuminated scope with a 10 meter AO of any quality. You are at the top of the heap with your Leupolds. It may have to do with the dual/reverse recoil of spring piston airguns that are used normally at 10 meters. You may want to try a laser like the Beamshot 1000 with the appropriate mount for your application, or a mounted Laser Genetics light to illuminate your target.

Thanks for the reply.. What about the Leupold 4.5-14 Side Focus with illimunated German # 4 dot (67855)? How low does the Parallax adjust down to? If it does not go down to 10 yards, can't Leupold Custom change it so it will? That would be the perfect scope for my eyes and application, if I could get it to adjust down to 10 yards and up to 100. Let me know? Thanks

Negative, the Leupold Custom Shop cannot make a parallax setting adjustable down to 10 meters. Standard parallax starts at 50 yards.
