Schmidt & Bender

Is Schmidt & Bender worth the price? I have an opportunity to buy a used Schmidt & Bender Long Range 4-16x50 scope with A8 reticle. What is a fair price for this scope? Would it be suitable for hunting elk and mule deer? What rings or bases should I use to mount it on a Model 700 Sendero SF II (7 Mag)? The gun is a gift for my son and I am looking for a good scope to match to it for all around hunting. This one caught my attention since it is used and I believe Schmidt & Bender makes good scopes and I can get it for a pretty good discount, or so I think I can. I would appreciate any help you guys can send to me.

Re: Schmidt & Bender

Yes depending on the price. Schmidt & Bender is widely considered to be the best scopes and glass made. Im sure your son would be more than thrilled to have that set up.

I assume you mean the 4-16x50 Klassik. A very nice scope. The resolution and contrast are excellent. The A8 is a heavy plex reticle design - not my first choice for long range. if you can get it a good price, it would be a fine scope to own, even if your son eventually switches to something with a milling reticle.

Any quality Picatinny base and fully machined tactical rings would work fine. Leupold, Nightforce and Seekins are good ring choices. There are several others.
