I've been piddling around looking at scopes on sale, Amazon, Ebay, Academy, Dick's, Bass Pro, etc, I found this at www.amazon.com

NcSTAR® 3 - 9x50E Red Illuminated Reticle Shooter Series Scope

NcSTAR Shooter's Series Variable - power Illuminated Reticle Scopes. BRIGHT targeting comes to your shooter at a GREAT BUDGET PRICE! Don't drop your whole hunting budget on an overpriced scope... Shooter Series Scopes by NcSTAR feature a red illuminated reticle with adjustable brightness settings to match light conditions. Details: Variable power for easy scan-and-shoot targeting, your choice of sizes; P4 Sniper reticle illuminates in red, with multiple brightness settings to match conditions; Multi-coated optics for enhanced clarity and a clearer sight picture; The front lens is coated with a ruby finish to reduce glare for maximum light absorption. This does not mean that when you look through the scope it will have a ruby or "red" tint. When looking at the scope lens exterior this red tint is visible. When a user looks through the scope when targeting the sight, picture will appear clear. Quick-focus eyepiece for fast targeting. Rings not included. Magnification: 3X-9X; Objective Size: 50 mm; F.O.V.@100 yds.: 34.6'-13.6'; Eye Relief: 2.9"-3.3"; Click Value: 1/4 MOA@100 yds.; Size/Weight: 7.4"/15.2 oz.

never heard of that brand

to be perfectly honest with you, I would not buy a scope unless I could hold it in my hand and look through it

I thought I'd get your opinion and look up some reviews, and trust me the reviews haven't been good. So I'll start looking around at Dick's and Academy and see if they have any on sale.

So, I get to choose a gun as my Birthday present, I choose this:



It's a Pietta replica 1858 New Army .44cal Blackpowder, 6 shot, like what Clint Eastwood used in Pale Rider(the phrase in my signature is what played a mysterious role in the movie) which happens to be one of my Favorite movies along with the gun being a favorite, ever since I was 10 the first time I saw Clint Eastwood drop the loader and pull out the centering pin and change cylinder's, I wanted that gun. I may shoot it like it is, or Midway USA has a .45 L/C conversion for $268.

its a CVA .44, I built from a kit in 1979
CVA used to sell alot of kits, back in the day

I still have a 12ga double barrel black powder kit & another 1860 .44 Navy Colt both New in the box never touched, from around the mid '70s
each part has to be hand filed fit & finished (blued) I blued the one above with oil and heated it up with a torch; turns out much better than the blueing/brown kits
spent about 30 hours on the brass it come very rough, and the wood has to be trimed and sanded its comes nothing more than a formed wood block, the pistol kit only cost about $80 back when

one day when I find time I'll put them together, may wait till grandson is old enough to help; something he will always remember and pass it on to him when I'm gone
