Weaver scope on Henry

I got my vintage Weaver V22 3-6 power scope today. It looks better than the Ebay pictures did. I just need to gently clean the front lens. And the crosshairs look great and are levelAll I need to do is sight it in.

Nice looking. I see you mounted both mounts behind the adjustments. I did the same on mine.

That is the way it came and it seems to be about right. I'll know after I shoot it for sure.

On a rifle I put the front one in front of the adjustments. It gives it a longer base and makes it more stable. But with the M'sLg it feels better more further forward.

On a lot of those vintage of scopes, wasn't uncommon to mount both rings on one side or the other of the adjustments. That's the way I did my old Redfield 4x on my Marlin 44 mag. No other way it would have worked as far as getting the eye relief distance.



Have gone back to the scout setup with a 2x pistol scope on this one, though. I like having the receiver clear and nice having the scope where it can't come back and bite you. The 44 mag with this little carbine tends to have a lot of bounce. Gun also seems to have more of a natural pointing ability with the scout setup than with a receiver mounted scope.

I've never used a scout scope. Is that a cantilever receiver mount or a barrel mount?

Just a quick update here. Took these back to the range today. So I had to snap a picture after I came back.

I agree, great pic. Has a very old west flavor to it with that six gun and lever gun.

Thanks folks, that is the closest thing I have to a cowboy hat. I posted a range report. It's a little long winded. But I did have fun along with a little frustration. A few self imposed obstacles to get past. but any day is a good day when I can shoot something.

Nice picture, Seabee.
That's a good lookin Indiana Jones hat, but it might be time for a Stetson.

Wow! I'm very impressed with that picture. Everything is in its proper place and that fedora fits in perfect.

Looking for a Stetson in tan that will block out the sun and travel well. Just haven't found the right one yet.

Now that's high praise indeed!



It really is a nice picture. The hat makes it.

The guns aren't bad either.
