so im looking for a fixed 4x for my .375H&H. my original thought is an ior. my question is this, will i be able to mount it on the h&h without ring extensions? other than a zeiss 4x is there anything else comparable out there?? im certainly new to the fixed power scene, 3x9's have always been my game. any extra info would help me out a lot. thanks

 My sense of it is that it would work fine, given that the IOR's eye relief is supposed to be generous and non-critical. but I don't think you'd have a LOT of leeway to move it back and forth. There isn't too much extra of usable tube on that scope, looking at the pics of it.

all i care about is that it fits on the rings without extensions. the 3x9 4200 just barely fits.

 I don't much care for the looks of extension rings either, so I know where you are coming from.

 Would you consider a Picatinny rail?

By the looks of the IOR and Zeiss` longer objective funnel lengths which decrease the mounting tube length,,,,,NOPE!.......... It doesn`t look like you`ll have enough mounting tube length for your H&H.......It appears you may need the offsets using either 4X......

This is the scope I have on my .375 H&H and I like it real well for that rifle. I also really like the long range duplex scope.  I think 6x is low enough to get on target the reticle heavy enough to pick up in low light or in a hurry and really a more suitable optic than a 4x if you will use the rifle at 200 to 300 yds  but still low enough to get on target at 50 yds plenty bright and good glass.

 It looks to have a good deal more tube than the IOR 4X...

As for the scope I wish I had two or three more of them but in the long range duplex for hold over marks.  The heavy duplex works for the .375 because you could wind up using it in very low light or defensively at night because the big critters will hunt you back.  A friend of mine has a lioness mounted in his den that came into camp at night. The real dangerous game guns are the double rifles with express sights and you are way too close for comfort. When I think of .375 H&H I'm thinking Elk Moose and uh oh we just rang Mr Grizzleys dinner bell.

How about you just ask someone who has one? For example, Rancid Coolaid has one on his 45-70.

I am not particularly "plugging" the Pentax, but it has held up to the punishment of the .458 Lott (read Mr. Barsness article on scoping dangerous game rifles) and the .458 WinMag.  The glass is better than average and the BDC works well for me.  I like it, but would also like to try out a 4x IOR on the Lott someday.  The IOR glass IS better.

ive been thinking, and maybe i should look at the 6x stuff too. ior makes a great looking 6x scope and its about 2" longer and has more moa of travel available to boot.  the 6x just worries me a little in close quarters.the one thing the the fx3 has over the ior in  the 6x class is about an inch of eye relief.
