Hi garfieldx2; Pistol scoopes are not EER (Extended Eye Relief) They are LER, Long Eye Relief. Thats why you had a problem. Scout scopes as made by Burris and Leupold are EER. There may be other companies making EER scopes but I've got mine so havn't been keeping up. Redfield made the first EER scope long before Jeff Cooper came up w/the scout concept. Back in the early '70's as I recall. The whole system, base and scope was designed for the Win.94. Bad timing. I agree that one of the new red dot sights ought to be the cats meow on a 16" carb. Don't have too much fun. Pepe Ray

The Steyr is a nice rifle, but has odd looks and would be priced out of the range of many buyers. I doubt you'll see a scout package on a levergun, but it would be a nice option. That much is for sure.
The scout concept is really a fancy set of ghost ring sights. You have your regular open sights, then semi-buckhorn and then full buckhorn, then ghost ring sights. Each time you you acquire a better sight picture (Keeping both eyes open). HEY, I just remembered. Numrich has a ghost ring sight you can install on your regular rear sights.MikeG said:I just don't see the advantage of the 'scout' concept, honestly.
I can put a low power variable on either a lever or a bolt gun and it seems like it has all the advantages of either type of setup .... say 1.5x5 or 2x7?
Haven't shot a true 'scout' so maybe I'm looking at it all wrong.
