Thank you for the info.Can’t tell from the picture, but is that the Redfield widefield 2-7? If so, that is a fantastic scope. Had one on a Ruger 77 years ago. Wish I never sold both. Anyway, the stocks are compatible, sometimes the older stock bearing plates are a little thicker than the newer ones. Just switch them out if the buttstock doesn’t sit flush to receiver.
Yes, a 2-7 Redfield Widefield on the 308, pictured alone. Also a 1 3/4 - 5 , Redfield Widefield on the synthetic stocked 35 Whelen carbine , I bought it used a year or so ago. Very good condition. I was a little unsure if I should put it on a brand new rifle, with all the great new scopes out there. It seems very bright and fits the rifle nicely. I did not get it sighted in before this season, but shot it yesterday and have it grouping nice at 50. Will do a little more tweaking at long range. Thinking of using it next year in Maine.
