Hi-Lux Replicates Classic Glass
SHOT Show is huge. Between appointments I try to walk the floor and look for stuff that catches my eye — and hopefully yours when it gets written up and posted here at GunsAmerica. This is one of those finds.
I was walking the aisles down in the far reaches of the basement when I looked over and saw what looked to be an old M40 Marine Sniper Rifle. And it was. I had stumbled upon the Hi-Lux Scope booth.
Hi-Lux had a number of cool vintage or reproduction rifles displayed with some of their historic optics mounted. A lot of these scopes are branded as William Malcolm. Check out the photos below for the scopes they had displayed.
The lighting isn’t the greatest at SHOT Show, and it’s even more spotty in the basement. But even in the crappy indoor light, the optics on these scopes where very bright and clear. My wheels are turning on a fun historic or retro build that could be done with some of these. Hipster rifles!
