1. For reasons unknown to us at SCC, it seems that SCC members who are AT&T users experience issues with emails and personal messages when using our forum. This is not unique to SCC and several other internet sites are reporting the same issues. Todo10, the company who helps us with the forum and hosting, have file a complaint with AT&T but we are not convinced AT&T will do anything about it. The only way around this is to register and use another email address not connected to AT&T. We are sorry for any inconveniences this might cause!

    I have a little Sako with a Leupold Compact 2-7 and the eyepiece diameter is 1.3" I tried to put a 1-4 Leupold on it but the eyepieve diameter of 1.56 and the bolt won't clear the eyepiece. The rifle is a little L-416 Full stock and I would like to put a scope with more FOV on it(coyote calling rig). The rings are original Sako lows and would prefer to keep those and they give me a perfect cheek weld so the hunt for a smaller eyepiece diameter 1-4x20mm scope.


    Thanks for any help.

    Forget "Cheek Weld." Your ability to see through a scope another 1/8 of an inch higher to accommodate medium rings and a better scope, is more important. Restricting the improvement of the optics and potential of the rifle and what it can do for you for the sake of low rings isn't worth the limitations.

    If wide FOV is what you're after then you should look for a Leupold 2.5 Compact. Same ocular diameter at the 2-7X, but about the widest FOV available (and most generous eye relief). I think this scope has been discontinued, but there are lots of them out there on the used market and Leupold will guarantee them to any owner for the life of the scope.
