In 1855, William Malcolm started building riflescopes. He understood that a riflescope must be properly constructed to hold zero. By the turn of the 20th Century, Malcolm had become the leading scope manufacturer in the U.S.
As a tribute to William Malcolm, our modern Malcolm vintage reproduction scopes are constructed to same specs with the general look and feel of the original scopes. The only difference with our Malcolm Optics is the glass. To give modern performance to these old style scopes, we have utilized modern lens coatings and manufacturing processes.
