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.
Based around the classic Unertl 8X
Built around the classic Lyman Alaskan, at home on the 1903A4 or Garand

The Malcolm 8X Vintage Sniper Competition (VSC) rifle scope is the embodiment of years of constructive feedback and improvements to the Malcolm 8X Gen I. The Malcolm 8X VSC rifle scope is purpose built for vintage sniper matches on the 1903A1 Springfield.
Externally, our M82G2 scope is the spitting image of the original. Internally, this scope is far superior. Those improvements include high quality multi-coated lenses for superior light transmission and exceptional clarity. The M82G2 scope also offers more windage and elevation adjustment than the original.
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 WWII originals used on the M1903 sniper rifles.
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.
The Malcolm 6X long rifle telescope sits right at home on muzzleloader, black powder cartridge, and modern smokeless rifles. Brass accents make a nod to the original brass-tube scopes that Malcolm replaced with his drawn-steel designs. The height of the elevation adjustment allows adjustments beyond 1000 yards with a .45-70.
