SMLE Scope suggestions

Recommended Posts

I now have a scope mount on my SMLE. Anyone got any suggestions for a decent scope?

-It needs to be mountable as low as possible, so probably no more than 32mm objective.

-Ideally not too fancy. No rubberised finishes and ideally straight lines not curves.

-Low magnification, I'm considering a 4x32 or if I could get something zoomable from 1-5-ish that would be even better.

 

Scopes I am looking at:

Have a look on www.scopesdirect.co.uk and at the Bushnell Elite range. Second one down should meet your requirements and not look too modern on an SMLE, as it's fairly straight and not overly magnified, which you really don't need at airsoft ranges. I did try to add the link, but the forum will not let me paste it into the reply.

£350 is a little over my budget. I could have bought an actual WW2 scope and mount for that!

I use a simple Tasco 4x40 scope on my sniper gun, very similar to what you've linked and it's very-very good. And cheap. I had a 4x32 but it was a bit small for my taste.

A bit of brass coloured paint should make most scopes look a bit older. The Strike scope is looking like a good bet as it's small and magnification from 2-6X seems to cover everything that will ever be needed in airsoft.

Maybe paint all the knurled areas a brassy colour and then dry brush some weathering.

Simmons wtc 1.5-4x20(?), should get one for about £90 and the optics are utterly superb, I wanted one but I came across a Japanese 4x40 for my svd but still waiting for my mount to arrive at my local retailer!!!
