Default Genesis gone Scope needed

Well the local steel plant closed a while ago and a friend lost his job. As time went on he sold off most of his hunting stuff to support the family. Now its better days with a steady job and he is trying to replace what he sold. Hence Genesis gone. Made him an offer he couldn't refuse with scope included. Now with a little money in my pocket I need to replace the scope. On Natchez they have the Weaver 40/44 on sale for $99 regular $300. Anyone use that brand on a muzzleloader? Only has 3.5" eye relief my only concern.

Might take a look at the Redfield Revenge - I have a 3x9x42 with an Accu-Ranger reticule - So far it has been outstanding and I think the $40 off cupon from Redfield is still available...



Watch the videon on this page - go to the bottom of the page right hand corner..


Your question about 3.5" eye reliief - and remember that is at the highest power and gets a little bit longer as you reduce the power.

Personally 3.5 is easily good for me but that does not mean it is easily good for everybody...
