Hi, found this scope and forum and I am interested in getting one for my RGS rifle that I am in the process of buying along with a Thompson Machine THIRTY can. My one concern is with the eye relief. Is 6.75" of eye relief on high power enough to clear the front of the action? I can understand if the ocular is over the receiver ring, but photos of the RGS that I rind with scout scopes make me think that the eye relief will be insufficient to clear the ejection port.
Here is one with a Burris 2.75x20. That scope is rated for
14 - 8.5" of eye relief and even that is mounted over the receiver ring. Assuming the Burris is mounted at 8.5" of eye relief, that would put this scope about halfway over the ejection port.
Does anyone have one of these scopes mounted onto a RGS? Where does it have to sit in order to be able to use the highest power? Would I be better off with a Leupold 1.5-4x28 and give up the dot? (I'm still kinda debating between a scope or a dot sight.)
/Figured it would be best to ask this in this thread, rather than start a new one, since I'm sure I won't be the only one asking this question.
