Im building a varmint rifle on a martini cadet action and because of the nature of the action, i've sort of decided on an intermediate eye relief scope, with intention of getting it as close to the barrell as possible.

 

ive been looking and cant find what i really want, which is a 2-7 variable power scope, to keep the scope away from the breech eye relief has to be at least 7 inches, i would prefer to have it as close to the breech but not directly above it.

 

Is there anything in that form, or around that form or should i go to handgun scopes. Can anyone point out any scopes that would be suitable or that in your oppinion would be suitable.

 

Any advice will be appreciated

 

cheers

Nikon makes a 2.5-8 X 28 EER (extended eye relief) scope, model # 6567. The eye relief varies between 9-30" depending on magnification setting. Leupold and Burris also make "scout" scopes with extended eye relief but they may be only available in fixed powers. Not sure who else makes scout scopes.

I thought long guns were outlawed in Australia?

Does anyone else know whats available, having a look around and no one seems to have one in 7 inches, all about 9 or more, which would upset the balance a lot.

 

Rifles havn't been banned in australia, just semi-auto and full auto rifles.

Most variable scopes with extended eye relief are designed to be used on pistols, so the eye relief would be a bit longer than what you are looking for.  Also, keep in mind that these scopes typically have parallax set at 50 yards, so you really need to consider getting a model with adjustable objective.

I have used a Burris 2-7x32AO pistol scope as a scout scope with reasonable success, but I think the eye relief was not much longer than 7", if at all.
