Left Overs

The scope that was on the Winchester Model 70 has been transplanted to Willard's Savage 93F.

The old Bushnell Sportview 3-9x32mm is a good fit.

Used new Weaver #16 mounts (from Marv) and Weaver rings (from Wal Mart) to stick it on and viola!

The more I play around with scopes the more I see that there's not anything actually wrong with most old glass.  In many cases cheap glass from days gone by is better than cheap glass today with regards to color transmission and distortion.  The exit pupil is HUGE on this Bushnell, and a better field of view than my Vortex 2-7x32.

It's worth noting that these old Bushnells are out there for almost nothing on ebay.  It's a decent alternative to cheaper glass, if you can stand being unstylish about your scope.

I forgot to take a picture...  Maybe an update in a bit.
