Postby Vaquero » Thu Mar 14, 2019 11:00 am

Found this on ebay a couple days ago.
Best price I've seen on them in a minute.
Got one coming, may be here tomorrow.
Gonna put it on a Shorty 35 Rem. of mine.

Thanks Mark.
I had a nice Vortex 1x4 on it, but
robbed it, and put on my Henry 41 mag. this past Fall.
Been lookin for a replacement.

If I could do it all over again, I probably would have gotten a 1.5-4 x 20 for my BBS 357. Ended up with a Weaver 1-3 x 20. Getting used to it though. Looks very much like yours.

Mark, I had never really used these smaller scopes much before.
Two years ago next month I went to Texas for a gathering.
Bunch of lever gun nuts :lol:
Anyways one of the guys there had one of these little Vortex scopes on a 45-70.
After I got home i started looking for one.
Found one on sale, can't remember exactly buy it was less than $150.
I really like it but I found this on sale for way less than I can find another Vortex at the moment.
Here's the Vortex

Thanks for the pic Vaquero..however, my weaver is already mounted and zeroed. It does have nice glass though! Think I paid approximately $165.00 from Amazon. The Vortex looks nice!

.
I think many of the Vortex scopes have gone up dramatically in price (import tariffs?). Almost a year ago I bought a Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6x24, paid $299 and that included a $90 fixed ring cantilevered scope mount. The mount was too tall so didn't use it. Today the same scope is $399 by itself without a ring mount.

Thanks Vaquero. For the realistic distances I will be shooting, I think the 1-3 should serve me alright. :)
