The Malcolm 6X Long Scope comes with the necessary mounts and dates back to the 1860's-1870's. True to the originals, the long-tube model features a graduated “rabbit-eared” rear mount. Both are adjustable for the windage and elevation. The Malcolm 6X Long Scope measures approximately 30.5" in length with the standard 5" sunshade.
The Wm. Malcolm 6X Long Rifle Telescope sight comes with a fine crosswire reticle.
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 like this scope very much for the look.so 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.
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!
Just purchased a long Malcom scope for my new Uberti 1885 highwall 45-70. The scope is beautiful but the 5 inch shade tube extension sticks out almost an inch beyond the barrel. Looks kinda odd and likely could more easily damage it. I wrote them as they knew exactly my gun and barrel length.They said I could order a 3 inch. Only a 4 inch would work to fit the dovetail. Don't make a 4 inch. Then the additional rear site mechanism (made in China) had to be remachined to work. My gunsmith did the machining and now it's great. So I'll live with a scope that's longer than the barrel as I have no choice. This disappointed me.
