Leatherwood / Hi-Lux Optics is proud of their new "old-style" Recreation of the traditional "Wm. Malcolm" line of Telescopic Rifle Sights. This production scope is available now!
(Reprinted from a Leatherwood / Hi-Lux Optics announcement:) The Wm. Malcolm telescopic rifle sight will look right at home on just about any black powder cartridge rifle from that era. These scopes closely duplicate the original "rifle telescopes" that were produced by the "Wm. Malcolm" Rifle Telescope Company during the late 1800's, and which were considered the finest of their day. And Leatherwood/Hi-Lux Optics has made this old design even better by incorporating fully multi-coated lenses and a nitrogen-filled tube to prevent fogging. Our new-made "Wm. Malcolm" scopes come
complete with precise external adjustment front and rear mounts with 1,000-yard capability with the standard .45-70 rifle cartridge. The scope tube measures 29- inches in length and features screw-in front extensions, which permit this scope to be mounted on a wide range of barrel lengths. And thanks to a well thought out mounting system that utilizes the existing dove-tail cuts for the front and rear sights, the Leatherwood/Hi-Lux Optics "Wm. Malcolm" scope can be installed with a bare minimum of gunsmithing. The scope is currently offered with 6x magnification, and comes with a five-inch screw in extension, which makes it ideal for most rifles with a 30-inch barrel length. The scope features a full four-inches of eye relief for protection from the recoil of large bore black powder cartridge rifles.
THIS IS THE TYPE OF SCOPE THAT WAS USED IN THE MOVIE----3:10 TO YUMA.....VERY RARE SCOPE TO SEE ON A RIFLE.
