The great scope era

The good old days of gun collecting are now.  The well built production rifles created in the last half of the 20th century by iconic rifle makers are really coming into their own.  But, the rich bluing, quality wood and high gloss finishes of these guns were complimented and sometimes even overshadowed by the beautiful, American-made, gloss black or blued matching steel tubed scopes that were paired with each one.

When scopes were finished to match the rifles of the day, the combinations created were each uniquely beautiful and classy.  The unique features like Redfield's Accu-Trac, Accu-Range plus TV Screens and the various retro reticle options added an element of fun to shooting that was previously missing.  Pictured above, a Browning BAR Grade IV in 7mm topped with a rare round view adjustable objective Redfield 4x12x Accu-Trac, Accu-Range.  Below is a 1949 Remington 721B in 30.06 with Weaver mounts which were introduced in the same year and a slightly later made V9 AO.

Let us help you with those naked and mismatched vintage guns.

Whether we bought it or inherited it, we all have a vintage gun (or 20) with either no scope or a bad mismatch.  Vintage Gun Scopes makes fixing a mess like this as easy as 1-2-3 on our 3 step build page.  All you have to do is turn a few screws.

Uncle Ed's Rifle

Sometimes a gun doesn't remind us of our own hunting memories but of those we have shared the field with.  Building a vintage combination from inherited guns, or our own collection that reminds us of our hunting mentors is both fun and rewarding.  Visit our build of the month page for ideas and some of our favorite vintage builds.
