woo Hoo! just got my new baby home, out of the box, cleaned and the first 50 rounds fired. Love it. now.. i gotta start making it Mine.
since i wanted it for 100-200 yards (maybe a few squeaks past), and creeping up on my 50th birthday i'm going to be needing a scope. having always used iron sights i'm kinda lost with where to start. thinking economical(not Cheap) but not top of the line. for coffee cans to coyotes with a few bunnies in between. suggestions??
as well, the stock feels 1/2-3/4" short but, the plastic butt plate's glued on. how am i supposed to make or buy spacers?

Contact Henry. They may be able to advise you on the best way to defeat their adhesive. Might also look into a personalized leather cartridge cuff. Might look classy on a lever gun.

As for scopes, I like the generous eye box of a Leupold. A Rifleman or VX-1 would be nice. Burris would be a good choice. I like a small variable for your application. A 1.5-6 or 2-7x33 34 35 ish. The small ocular would allow low mounting. Very handy on a rifle with a bit of drop in the comb. Light too. Around 10oz.

thanks a lot!
i suppose i hadn't considered mounting height(damn, close one). and it's nice to have an idea where to start.
i'll also be firing an e-mail of to ol' Henry
again thanks

I've had good luck with Nikon scopes on rimfire rifles. I have a 4X Prostaff on a S&W 15-22 that is a great little scope.
