Wm. Malcolm Rifle Scopes

In 1855, William Malcolm embarked on a journey of crafting rifle scopes, driven by his commitment to surpassing existing standards. Incorporating achromatic lenses to minimize color fringing, adjustable diopters, and precision mounts with fine elevation and windage adjustments, Malcolm scopes gained prominence, establishing William Malcolm as the leading U.S. scope manufacturer by the 20th century.

These scopes are ones of classic U.S. military history, found often atop a Springfield M1903 or to the side of a Garand. In modern days, they find their place in competitions (such as the CMP Vintage Sniper matches), as replacements for old and worn-out originals, or in the hands of anyone looking for a taste of tradition.

Malcolm 2.5X M73G4

Externally, the Wm. Malcolm M73G4 is the spitting image of the original. Internally, this scope is far superior due to the vast improvements in modern optics. Additionally, the M73G4 offers more windage and elevation adjustment than the original, with a total of at least 60 MOA adjustment from optical center. We also offer a mount for the M1903A4 rifle.  Hi-Lux has totally re-engineered this scope's optical design from the inside out, maximizing the image clarity and light transmission. Our goal was to bring to the Vintage Sniper Rifle competition shooter a top quality scope that surpasses the quality of the...

Malcolm 2.5X M82G2

By 1944, U.S. troops had been adequately armed with the M1 Garand, which had proven to be an excellent and reliable combat rifle. Efforts were then turned to transforming some of these rifles into sniper rifles - and the M1C was born. Since the Garand is a top eject semi-auto rifle, a mount was devised that off-set a scope enough to the left side of the receiver to allow empty cartridge cases to clear without hitting the scope. There were two versions of M1C scopes - the M82 with a tapered post reticle, and the M81 with a cross-wire reticle....

Malcolm 8X (Gen II) Vintage Sniper Competition Scope

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...

Long Scopes

In 1776, the first "Riffle with a Tellescope to it" was born. Roughly 80 years later, William Malcolm began assembly of his Rifle Telescopes, a far improvement over the original concept. We've carried that tradition forward with barrel-length scopes that are a step ahead of the classic telescopes.
