Malcolm 6X Long Rifle Telescope

Fine Vintage Riflescopes for Fine Vintage Rifles

William Malcolm is the oldest name in scope manufacturing, established in 1855. Malcolm Optics has stepped back in the time to redesign this historic line of telescopic rifle sights, providing today's vintage rifle shooter with period correct styling and modern optics.

The Malcolm 6X long rifle telescope sits right at home on either 1840-1860 style long-range muzzle-loaded bullet rifles or a wide range of late 1800s black powder rifles.

An ever growing selection of the mount bases now include the side mounts for various sharps rifle models, the off-set mount set for the long Malcolm scope on a round barrel Percussion rifle, Remington rolling block rifles, Winchester Model 1885 rifle, H&R “ Buffalo Classic”, Winchester ’73, ’76, ’92 & ‘94 models, Henry “Golden Boy” .22, Marlin ’94 / ’95 models, and others.

The Malcolm 6X long rifle telescope's glass lenses are fully multi-coated for optimal light transmission and nitrogen purged for fogproof performance.

The Standard Front Ring that is included with the Malcolm 6X long rifle telescope is designed to be zeroed at 200 yards. If you would like to zero the Malcolm long rifle telescope at 100 yards, you will need the Higher Front Ring.

Don't want to Drill and Tap your barrel? No problem, you can use the Dovetail Sliding Mounts and mount this scope directly to the front and rear sight dovetails. Please indicate the size of the dovetails on the barrel or the make of your rifle in the notes on checkout.
