Help! I have a K-98 that has Luepold mounts and Rings. My problem is I wanted to put something a little bit better than my 60 year old 30 mm objective lens Herter's but I cant find a 30 mm main tube longer than 6 inches on a 40 mm objective lens. The distance from the front of the front scope ring and the back of the rear scope ring is just under six inches. The upper handguard on the rifle is custom and I don't want to change it, so that means I am restricted to a 40mm objective lens. Does anyone know of a scope that will solve my problem? Thanks

I had this idea come to me and thought we could give it a try. The question "What scope should I get?" comes up here all the time. Now obviously what I'm running and what dude over there is running, doesn't mean a new shooter has to run it. But if we can have a database of what is used by those of us who have been shooting for a while and our thoughts of what we run, could really help out a new shooter. We have a diverse group of shooters here, so I'm hoping that as time goes on, we'll have a good range of prices, uses, and features.

I don't want this to turn into a discussion thread. I really would like to keep this thread just as a database. So if you want to contribute please copy and paste the format below into your thread. If there is something you thing I should add or take off, shoot me a PM and I'll take care of it. Please tell us what scope you have, the MSRP (not what you paid for it), the style of shooting you do with this setup, the gun its on, and some of the pros and cons in your opinion of the scope. If you want you can also include any pictures of the scope.

Gun you use it on:
Style of Shooting:
Scope: NightStar 2x50
Style of Shooting:Tactical
Pros: Not to big east to use
Cons: none yet
