It's not like a Leupold in a one piece mount, but it's a lot more robust than you might think.
Zero is zero, and the adjustments are right there for you to see and verify.

I have and use different other rifles here, some modern things with rocks and mud durability.
This one is a lot of fun for the vintage aspect of the setup.
I like it. It's not a 35mm tube Steiner Military, but it's right for an accurate and handy field rifle.

I think I would like it, too. Like you I have other tougher rifles/scope combos. In reality tho', all of them can have their issues. My ATN Thor thermal recently "crashed". I think the core is shot. That's a lot of money gone with the wind, because it was out of warranty.

I need to look closely at the spacing for the bases on the Husky, and see what it is. I'll snap a pic or two and put them up here. Perhaps someone could help further with mounting suggestions.

Thanks, SRH

The scope mounts should ideally be 7.2" apart, center to center.
With proper spacing, the knobs yeild properly graduated MOA adjustments.
With other spacing, the values will be different.
Lyman addressed this in their product guide for the 5A

You will probably also need 7.2" spacing to reach back far enough to prevent stock crawling. The next width is 10.8" which is a bit less convenient (3 units per C" at X00 yds) and moves the rear most scope position 3.6" further forward.

You do not need and probably don't want a recoil return spring, thought I suspect in a .220 Swift recoil is pretty minimal.

Try http://unertl.alexweb.net/for_sale.htm. He usually has a pretty nice selection, including Vultures.

He must have changed his pricing philosophy then.

The Alex Web site has not been active in years, and he hasn't updated those scopes and prices in years. I'd not plan on getting a scope from him, or especially not at the prices listed.

Pic of the Swift. With only one dovetail in the barrel would I be better off just to stay with a vintage internally adjustable scope, like the Weaver K8 skeetx mentioned, and use the bases I already have mounted? The barrel dovetail is 6" from the front action ring base, ctc. The two bases on the action are 6 3/16" apart, ctc.
