Malcolm 8X (Gen II) Vintage Sniper Competition Scope

It's finally here. We've listened to shooters on the forums, online and at the National Matches. For a limited time, we'll be honoring the pre-order price and offering $50 off MSRP. 

The Malcolm 8X Vintage Sniper Competition (VSC) rifle scope is the embodiment of years of constructive feedback and improvements to the Malcolm 8X.  The Malcolm 8X VSC rifle scope is purpose built for vintage sniper matches on the 1903A1 Springfield. 

Most notably, this scope features the Unertl style competition micrometer adjustments. These adjustment turrets allow for zero backlash in between clicks and dial precise 1/4 MOA adjustments when the mounts are spaced 7.250" from center to center. The turrets can also be reindexed to "zero" after initial zeroing.

All threads on the rifle tube and objective are significantly improved from the previous generation. The threads turn easily and feel super smooth.

The pope rib on the body has been laser spot welded on to the scope tube for straightness and strength.

All screws in the scope and mounts are hardened for optimal durability.

I am very pleased with the scope, but have not had an opportunity to take it to the range yet.

Malcolm 8x Gen II

This scope is a vast improvement over the Gen I
Threading improved , Great Glass, Form Fit and Functionality, very good. Comp Rings adjustments excellent, however with that said, more attention to the styling of the rings to a more vintage look would be better, I am sure this makes no difference to comp shooters,
Mine is mounted on a pre 64 Winchester model 70 Gov’t 30-06, using my Unertl blocks, I will say your blocks are improved, even though I did not use them, only had time to shoot at 100 yards, sight in was quick and efficient.
I replaced an aging and tired Lyman target spot 8x with this new scope, I have the Unertl 8x on another Winchester Model 70, The new Gen 2 is competitive with the Unertl in use.
With the Unertl’s being very hard to find in good condition and very Costly, I believe the Malcolm 8x is well worth the price for the person who wants to use this style of optic. Thank You

Gen 2 Malcolm 8x

Finally had a day to get to the range and try out my new scope. So far all my thoughts are positive. The focus ring on the objective end is very tight and hard to turn but it will probably loosen up with use. Its bright and clear, knobs tract well and are tight. Very happy so far.

Gen 2 much better

Fit and finish much better than Gen 1, optical clarity much better than Gen 1, all in all the scope is what Gen 1 should have been from the start, at this price. This is still not Nightforce quality, but you are not paying Nightforce prices either.

Great Job Guys!

Great job on working the bugs out of the original Malcolm 8x. Prior to this Gen II, I found it necessary to return 2 Original Gen I examples to a vendor for sub par threading at both the ocular and objective ends of the main tube. I was also "on the fence" regarding the mounts and associated mounting blocks as well as the method of securing the Pope rail to the main tube. The originals items were indeed functional but still lacking that precision feel, execution and overall sense of quality.
Rest assured, these items have been fully addressed in the Gen II. Chris and Company have truly knocked this one out of the park! The new scope, mounts and blocks are all Top Shelf, the Pope rail is now welded in place, the poor threading has been totally eliminated, resulting in precise fit and finish, adjustment tracking and superb overall quality now. Again, Great job! Very happy with this purchase!
