Re: Philny1, rockchucks and divine intervention

I thought that was an SS. I just wanted to ask before I made an assumption. Is that a pre-SWFA buy out, or after they bought the patent on the scope? I know they had some rough years with that scope.

It is after the patent.
I have a buddy who has one and thought what the heck, i'll give it a try. I have other very high end scopes on other rifles but i wanted to try the SS.
The glass is mediocre during darker moments but i am super impressed with the durability and reliability. So far, it has always returned to zero with the same POI.
There is just no way to beat it for the money and even that aside---it is a great scope.

Randy~

I have a set of 30mm Leupold Rings and bases that are off your rifle. They're squirted in the same green as the barreled action. Phil must have replaced them with a rail and other rings while he used the rilfe. If you want them, I'll send them your way.

Joel, yes, I would love them and just let me know what you need for them, AND
Keep me in mind for any lefty rifles that come your way.

Take care, Randy

I don't want any money for them, they belong with you.

I'm out of town until the weekend. I'll send them your way as soon as I get back.
