Lyman rifle scopes are like hens teeth in New Zealand and I was lucky to buy this as new six power from an Estate sale and put it on my BSA 5.6x50R Martini.
I find a six power ideal for most of my hunting, in this case one to two hundred metre rabbits.
Most modern scopes I find have too large a bell at the rear end for ease of inserting and ejecting a cartridge on Martini's
Great glass and a duplex reticle.

I also wish I'd bought a boxcar load of Leupold Alaskans instead of the single 6X I got to fit my Savage .25-20, which had been T&D'd for a Weaver mount and "Savage" marked 7/8" rings and then fitted with a no-name Japanese 4X ".22" scope.

The Alaskan is clear and bright for such a small scope, and fits the 23B well in balance and appearance. Needs no suppressor: makes less noise than a .22 LR high speed. Kills stuff.

Nero, do you shoot deer with that 5.6x50R?

No I have another BSA Martini 7mm Waters for deer.
Generally use the iron sights for the bush and put the scope back on for more open country.
The gunsmith I bought my sleeved barrel H&H Rook rifle in 5.6x50R used to use it for deer.

Neat conversion jobs on your Martinis! I only have one left, a .25-35 (or 6.35x52R if you prefer).

When I started shooting Silhouette many years ago several Lyman LWBR scopes on the line. Good friend of mine had a 24x LWBR on his Anschutz 54 MS. Tried to buy it from him many times. I was using, and still own, Weaver T's thought the Lyman was the better scope.

Always thought LWBR stood for Light Weight Bench Rest. Built to stay within weight rules. May or may not be true.

Awhile back, I got a Lyman Alaskan off of ebay. It was on a partial Stith mount that obscured the serial number,
I was fiddling with it today and removed the mount. The serial number is 1550, it is an All-Weather scope, but here
is the strange thing. It has an alloy tube. I googled and found that the early Lyman Alaskans had alloy tubes.
Wow, this is one of the those days when I did learn something new.

I have shot deer with my 5.6x50R ( Brno not Martini). I load it with 60 gr Nosler Partition bullets. They work great, they are simi-spitzer so are not too long for the twist. Even 1 in 1`4 twist in 222 will stabilize them.
