OK - here's the problem:


i mounted a 4x32 simmons 22mag scope on my ancient glenfield bolt action single shot 22 LR.


i made sure to mount it far enough back to not interfere w/ the bolt throw. BUT.........


i realized that now i cannot fully slide the bolt out of the gun for cleaning because the eyepiece bell is in the way. oops.


do i need to remount it? do i really need to take that bolt out for cleaning?


your advice is appreciated. 




p.s. - for the price, the 22 mag is an EXCELLENT scope for a plinker.  i am getting 5 shot groups at 25 yrds you can cover w/ a dime w/ CB caps. fun fun.

I always like to remove the bolt personally to clean the chamber.  But, its not that big of a deal if you like it.  My son's bolt action Marlin 22mag. with some cheap scope will cover a quarter all day long at 100 yards.  Its a great little rifle.  I still have my Glenfield Marlin 22lr auto.  I pulled it out last year and refinished the stock.  Unfortunately, it had a minor crack at the pistol grip that I worsened, when I ran into it while I was letting it dry, falling to concrete.  However, I did a nice job repairing it and it is stronger now than it was before, with the minor crack.  Nice little gun.  About 37 years old and shoots well.  Not like the Marlin my son has.
