My Striker should be done in the next week or two, and now I think I want to get a new scope for it. I have a Burris 3-12x pistol scope that was on the gun before. But I want to get higher quailty optics, and high magnification.
My concerns right now, are eye relief and durability of scopes in my price range of $800 (this budget includes any money I get from selling the current Burris scope). The gun is chambered in 338/375 Ruger and will (obviously) have a muzzle brake
, and will probably weigh about 10#. I just want a scope that is durrable, has good eye relief and good optics.
If I had the money I'd go staight for the Nighforce or Mk 4 scopes. As much as I hate to admit it though, they're just out of my budget. Even the used ones are out of my league. So that brings me to the next level down. I can probably get a VX-3, Bushnell 4200 or 6500, Burris Signature, or Nikon Monarch. I have a few Leupolds (VX-3s and Mk 2), a few Bushnell 4200s, and a Nikon Monarch. I'm happy with the optics on any of them, I just don't know how suitable they are for Specialty Pistols.
So what do you more experienced SP shooters think? This would be my first rifle scope on a handgun, so I'm starting from ground zero.
