My new Super Sniper scope is mounted on a Bassett Machine mount (Springfield Squad Scout M1A-A1 rifle, Badger rings). Any suggestions as to how to store it when not attached to the rifle?  I want it secure when going to and from the range if it's not mounted.
Thanks in advance.

Craig

Sure, you can get a pistol hard case and convert it for the scope.

Welcome to Optics Talk, Craig.
 
I honestly don't know how to answer your question.
 
I've traveled by throwing mine in the floor boards of my pick up more times than I can count. Thats the only real answer I can manufacture at this time. Bucky
 
I have also left it lay loose in my range bag, gun cases (both hard and soft).
Damn near impossible to mame a Super Sniper, my friend.

But a pistol case is a good idea, or a padded camera case.  Either could work, and you don't need a super expensive one either.

Thanks for the replies. Pretty obvious solutions, guess that's why I'm the FNG.

I guess my question is why would you dismount a scope that's zereo'd to the rifle, only to have to re-zero when it's re-mounted?  It's not going to return to zero despite what you may have read.
 
You can store the supersniper in a fish bowl with no ill effects.  I stored one of mine in 12 feet of lake granbury for a month with no harm other than fish doodoo on the glass.

I'm wondering how this happened. I mean I don't think that it was an intentional thing, was it? If the story is anything nearly as good as the Armadillo story, we have got to hear it Mike.

Original poster is "probably" shooting irons at times, then switches to scope, then back to irons, hence the need to store the SS.
I do the same with my AR15.

The Bassett M14 mount does not lose zero after remounting that is one of the main reasons for using it.  Its like magic.
