my search for a sight /scope for my .327 lever gun

Post by Roland the Headless » Thu May 21, 2020 2:55 pm

I decided to put a different sight or scope on my .327 so I invite you to come along on this adventure

to day I was looking a 44 mag lever gun I mounted the rifle to my shoulder, looked down the sights with the peep sights the front sight was clear

now I have to have one, but I was also thinking of a scope ...that might happen too

I like the way the peep looks and the more compactness
I probably could get tighter groups with a scope
so both???
I gunna go and do some reading on this forum
I will be back to type what figgered out

Roland, here’s a link to a post I made regarding scoping a 327. My old eyes just can’t do open sights anymore.

I have Williams ace in the hole sights on a few of my marlins. It is a rail that includes a fully adjustable peep, with quick release scope rings I can swap between peep and scope in seconds.
If only they made on for the Henry.

Ranger Point Precision may have a model for the Henry.

Roland, how's the scope search going? Got an idea or two if you're still looking.

still looking and considering both

I got a savage 170 in 30-30 picked up a (of all things )all pro k-mart brand scope for it
the scope is about the same vintage as the rifle and looks as good as it seems to work
also I picked aT\C branded scope for my 10\22 It looks like a tasco but who knows
I think it is a black powder scope so we will see how long it will last
I tore up a rim fire scope on a pellet rifle

leaning toward the skinner peep sight for the .327

rifletom I would love to hear your opinions on scopes, sights , or the weather ...whatever you feel like typing about bud :D

I swapped the scopes on my rifles the T/C scope did not fit right and wiggled a bit, but fits well on the 170
