First topic message reminder :

Can you guys recommend a scope for my Rugar 22/45 ? Something not too expensive but still decent.

The scope arrived early this morning and looks to be in great condition, only a couple tiny marks on it that hardly show. Looks like it was either used very little or well taken care of. I am going to look online and see if I can find a manual for it.
LenV thank you for finding this scope, I appreciate it.

wow I see what you mean about threading a sewing machine while it is running. This is going to be for bench rest shooting for me. It really magnifies the movement of a shaky hand. lol But I can see the cross hairs fine and I think it will be better than the red dot I was using. If not I can post it on ebay and pass it along to someone with a steadier hand tyhan me.

Pistol scope

Post by Dipnet on 1/29/2017, 3:05 pm

I have a Matchdot II and an 2 moa Aimpoint and like both of them. However, the Matchdot II has an elevation knob that can be loosened and zeroed, which is super handy. For example, if you have a different long line load, you can zero the scope for one of the loads and with a quick turn, you are dialed-in for the short line. I use the Matchdot II with a Pardini SPBE and that feature makes it possible to use one scope for two calibers. I know a Pardini shooter who shoots both calibers, but uses the accessory scope rail and two scopes, an extra $450+.

For my 45, I have developed long and short line loads that don't require any adjustments. Before the magic dot, shooters often painted marks on iron sights for different loads. If I had to recommend one over the other, I'd go with the Matchdot II.

Importantly, mount your pistol in a vice and get it level before tightening scope rings. This eliminates need for all but minor windage adjustments (if the windage knob is centered). Cheers, dipnet

I have MatchDot IIs on 3 of my BE pistols and one on a Ruger 10/22.  I also have scope levels on each of them.  A hold over from rifle shooting.  Don

Rebs, did you ever get that scope to work? I have not seen it on Ebay so must be working for you. Another one showed up there last week and I grabbed it up. I was hesitant because I probably have enough scopes but this one was unique. It is a Tasco Pro Bow scope. Almost identical except it has three vertical dots instead of a single crosshair. Going to be fun to figure out.
