Love it
I am mechanic and the instructions are a little hard to follow. Need better images. But I got on and it is beautiful and my rifle is complete

Nice scope ehhh rear mount

The scope itself seems good. I tried sighting in my 1874 pedersoli sharps over the weekend. Was able to get on paper easy enough but fine tuning windage was a pain and i ended up running out of ammo had about 50rds with me. It was shooting 3 inchs to the left of aim point and I try to adjust windage it goes to far to the right, i try to split the difference with marks on the front and no movement then go little more and then it's back on the left 3 inchs and elevation would not hold no mater how tight the knob after 4 or 5 rounds started moving. Ordered the fine elevation adjustment hopefully cure elevation issues, going to take every apart put it back together hopefully I didn't miss something and go back out to see if I can get that windage to respond correctly.

I love it

Works and fits perfectly

Malcolm 6X Long Rifle Telescope

I like this scope very much for the far I have shot it once and it seemed to function fine. it would be great in a mid-length for 23" barrels and higher mag offerings would be nice too.

Glad with the malcolm LR 6x on pedersoli sharps 1874

Ordred my scope on wednesday and arrived on monday ( very fast for me) due to customs in france, without it had been at home on friday.
The scope had fitted perfectly if I had controlled the dovetail size. So, it was too small, but Hilux send me directly the correct one
On the range after a bit of trying it shoot a group so nice I never shooted with iron sights!
