Hey,guess what? The Santa Fe Special got another facelift, again. I put that RSM aftermarket Sniper scope mount on it,and then added a Simmons 3-9x50 scope. The coolest thing was that I did not have make any major adjustments to the scope. 8 clicks to the left,10 clicks up and done. Good for 100 yards for right now.
Thank you for putting up with all my,"look what I did this time," projects...

Goosic. Big fan of all your projects. In my humble opinion, in regards to the Enfield Battle Carbines (my new name for the No.5) a straight tube scope would be more appropriate. I think it fits the lines of the rifle, and probably, a "Sniper scope" is "over kill" for a 100 to 150 yard rifle. Just an opinion, as obviously your gun smithing skills are vastly superior to mine. I like to think I have an eye for art and form. Please, keep on producing stuff on the "cutting edge!" I've got many ideas from your projects.

Goosic. Again, in my humble opinion, you nailed it! The tube scope follows the weapon lines, not over powering but enhancing! Awesome!

As we're pretty much non-traditional at this point I have no problem with also using a non-traditional scope as well.One of the better things to happen since the 40's & 50's is a huge development in optics, so I take full advantage of them!
My only thought is to proportion the scope so its not "a big scope wearing a small rifle"!
That's one of the reasons why I like the the compact 2~7 or 3~8 X35 ones, or a smallish 3~9X40, like this:


No4 Mk2 with a Nikon 2~8X32, NO5Mk1 with a compact 3~9X40

I've since replaced the Nikon with a Leatherwood 3~9X40 ART Camputer II but that's about the upper limit for me.

That's "Bert & Ernie".

Yes the rear is a P-H 5a. I'm still looking to find the matching  front globe sight, but he's a rare beast indeed.
