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.
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.
Just got it mounted and sighted in by a great gunsmith! Proud as a peacock!
The scope it's self is great along with the fine elevation kit the only thing to inprove on the scope is the windage adjustment You have to move the scope up to get to the windage screws. The only problem I found was with the Higher Front ring kit the dovetail is very large and the only way to get it to fit is to have the dovetail enlarged on the barrel. Would have been good if it were the same size that come with the scope
I purchased the scope, hood and elevated front mount for my Shilo Sharps Quigley 45-70. Installation was straight forward and required no new holes in the barrel. I was surprised to find the windage control on the front of the sight and the elevation on the back. After sighting in at 25 yds, I moved to 50 and then 100 yds. Adjustments were easy and groupings were all very good. I am ordering the FEASET option at this time, My 4 start rating is because of the windage adjustment location. Fit and finish of all pieces is very good and the scope looks great on the rifle. My calls with questions were answered promptly and professionally. This setup has my recommendation.
