Re: NTS Custom XP100 in .243 Win.

I'm trying to understand why its good to have that custom eye relief so far aft when its a pistol scope. ??

Re: NTS Custom XP100 in .243 Win.

it is because this is pistol/scout scope (not a true pistol scope). scout scopes are made for use on pistols and lever action rifles when the scope is mounted in front of the action. I still use an extended mount on my other pistols since I shoot in the Creedmore position and have a need to ge the scope closer to my eye in order to see full field of view at 7 power etc. some folks mount the scope in the traditional rings and it works for them.

Re: NTS Custom XP100 in .243 Win.

how can that set up be as accurate as putting the scope on a stiffer mount?..I don't mean to be "smart",,, but ...the ' see-thru' mounts on top of a piece of aluminim rod...cantilievered back off of two rings.... seems different ..at best...I'm just asking....I've been shooting hand guns for years,,,,read about useing rifle scopes on handguns,,,,never seen it.... please let me know the thinking behind your set up....


thanks,
Alan.

SEE ABOVE REPLY. it is not permenant, if you don' t like it don't use it. It works for me. You ever see a Ken Light "Extended Mount"? or a high rise mount?
go to www.kenlightmfg.com check 'em out.

Set up for IHMSA, shooting on your back with the gun resting on your leg. Very stable.

Re: NTS Custom XP100 in .243 Win.

thank ya'll,,

I educated myself a little on 'creedmore handgun shooting'....and realized that it's about comfort and eye relief....Stability in the creedmore position would dictate a longer aft base mount....but.. does the 'high rise' mount cause a problem down range at multiple yardage?.....ie. kent mounts..I assume those mounts let the shooter hold the pistol close to the torso .. but lower than' line of sights',,..and allow the use of a rifle scope...

let me know if i am on the right track guys!!

thanks

Alan,
