I have a 3-9x32 Simmons mag22 scope mounted on My model 60 that might just make it's way on to my H001 to replace the red dot. I hate the way the Red dot looks. The Simmons cheapie is shockingly better than a lot of high dollar scopes I have used in the past.

Thanks again to NCG for the recommendation on the Leu VX Freedom 1.5-4X20.

Yep, about to post a quick range report on that sub-forum.

That looks right at home there! Where did you source your leather lever cover? T may have to pick one of those up for my SGC.

Pioneer Gun Works. Put one on my SGC as well (longer version). Great video on how to "install" it, too.

Thanks for the tip. Looks like a good product and company.

Remember, it's not how many guns you have. It's how many bullets you have.

Yes, very good quality. Lever wrap is padded and installs very easily if you follow the vid.

Wish they made a simple cheek riser (if there is such a thing). It's clear the comb on the buttstock of the BBS isn't exactly right for a scope. Part of my adjustments today was getting my eye stable behind the eyepiece. Kinda hanging in mid-air.

Life's full of trade-offs, huh?

Yes it is. I have the same issue with mine. I put a Bushnell banner 1.75-4 on the same rifle. It works very well. I simply have to learn where to keep my jawbone on the stock. A fun learning experience.

That is darn near perfection E^2, but why don't they make scopes in gloss any more?
