Hey guys, I'm from South Africa and recently received an old auto range realist scope from my uncle without the rail. I don't even know where to start looking for this rail. Any help would be appreciated. Herewith a piece on the scope. The scope was invented/designed by Leatherwood. the info on the scope is limited, so if anybody knows about this scope, please advise.

Realist was from Menomonie, Wisconsin.  I guess they got together with Leatherwood in the 60s to built that bullet drop compensator deal.  They had been making regular scopes for a while by then.  They say USA on them.

They're gone now.

I have a completely refurbished military version of that scope… made by Redfield and Weaver for Leatherwood.  It is in my least favorite variable range… 3-9.  I've tried it on a few rifles… works very well.

Thanks kickboxer, would it be possible for you to send me some pics on the rail and how it work? I would like to see how the scope fits in the rail and then how the cam on the scope use the rail.

Thanks in advance.

Apologies… I ended up going on an unexpected trip and have had some wildfires to put out since I got back:

Two photos… the objective bell barely clears the rail, but it IS clear… I had to remove the front lens cover, but it can be filed down and will fit.

Thank you very much!

I now know that I would never be able to use the scope the way it was intended to be used. I will swap my wife for any rail system should you know were I can get one....lol


What fire arm is this? Some parts on the photo shows resemblance to the old SA military issue R1.

I really like that scope... I don't use it enough.

Rifle is DPMS LR-308 with some mods... Geissele SSA-E trigger group, nickel-boron bolt carrier, PSG-1 style grip, quad-rail, has worn several different scopes.  Pretty accurate, reliable as long as I use 168gr+ ammo.  I've thought of selling it, never seriously...  I have an FNH FNAR that I like much better.
