Hey guys.... I recentely bought a Thompson Center rifle / pistol with the ackley improved .223 bull barrell. It has a FM 3x9x26 with the blue illuinated reticle. But the eye relief on it just does not give me the clear site picture I would like. I don't know if it is the scope or me. Nevertheless I want to put a good scope on it that will but break the bank. Something along the same size and power would be nice to keep it light. I will be hunting whitetails with it. My normal shoot range will be from 100 - 200 yards, with the rare 350 yard shoot. Any suggestions are welcome. Sorry if this post should have been in the handgun area... wasn't quite sure considering. Thanks in advance.

First a word of caution - if you registered it as a pistol when you bought it you can switch it to rifle stock and 16 in + barrel.  If you registered it as a rifle when you bought it you can NOT switch to pistol grip and 15 in or less barrel. Also a note for barrels under about 21 inches when used with the folding stock - a rifle MUST be 26 inches + overall that means stock folded short  with a factory made rifle barrel that is a 20 in barrel will send you to prison.  Now for scope suggestions:

All of the above will work for a rifle and the aimpoint will work for a pistol as eye relief is not a factor.  If it is a pistol and you do not like the dot a low power pistol scope is what you need.

I am not quite clear here.

Are you looking for a rifle scope or a pistol scope?
Also, what price range are you looking at?

Thanks for that bit of information. I will have to read up on the laws in my state. I bought it from an individual so it is currently not registered in my name at all.
