In 1855, William Malcolm started building riflescopes. William Malcolm elected to design his scopes to a higher standard. His scopes used achromatic lenses to reduce color fringing, included an adjustable diopter and offered mounts with fine elevation and windage adjustment. By the turn of the 20th Century, William Malcolm had become the leading scope manufacturer in the U.S.
As a tribute to William Malcolm, our Malcolm vintage scopes are built to a higher standard of requirements. While the exterior of the Malcolm scopes resembles the general look and feel of the original scopes, the optics are superior to the originals. To give modern performance and clarity to these old style scopes, we utilize modern lens coatings and manufacturing processes.
