Hey guys, I could use some help here. I have an older hastings slug barrel for a remington 870 and it has no rifle sights just two scope mounts about an inch long apiece that come up way in front of the reciever. I want something with a really wide field of view to use while driving deer in the timber with a party as well as something that will magnify a lil bit for settin on a field edge. I am thinkin lime a vx3 1-5x30. The problem is it has to be a extended eye relief scope, leupold is the only company i can find that has anything and it has to come from thier custom shope and thats like 550.00 does anyone know somehing else that might work.

How about the Nikon slughunter 1.65 - 5X 36? It has an ER of 5".

If we're not suppose to eat come they're made of meat?

5 inch isnt really long enough i need about 8the inc. A pistol scope is to long. I dont know what the eye relief is for scout mount scopes but im thinking after tryin to mount the pistol scope they may be to much as well. I been tryin to find a store to take it to that has a large selection of optics and just try different scopes untill i find something. No stores on iowa have anything though.

Have you looked at some of the handgun scopes?  I shoot 3 bolt action pistols (221/22-250 and 7mm-08) with 2X7 and 2X8 scopes with eye relief out as far as arms length.  Bushnell, Burris and Tasco I know makes them. Hope this helps.

This has a very wide eer range (8-14) and may be your best choice

We measure it with a micrometer, mark it with a crayon, and cut it with a chainsaw.
