I have a CVA accura V2, and now that Minnesota has made it legal to hunt with a scope, I am looking at mounting one on my V2. What does everyone suggest? Need suggestions for rings and bases also.

Hey BigDaddy, I would suggest you run over to Cabelas.  Then you can look through a variety of scopes and judge for yourself.  On scopes you get what you pay for.  You'll definitely see a difference at dusk and dawn with more clarity looking through a better scope. 

As far as a scope mount, my strong recommendation is the DNZ Game Reaper, (check out at Optics Planet for best price).  They are 1/3rd the weight of the steel mounts and hold your riflescope secure and tight, no slippage.  Don't get the small for your V2.  I always get the medium unless you have a large scope then you might need the tall.

Well, I’m in luck, I just went thru some of my old stuff, and I found a DNZ medium mount, so that saved me a little. Marty, my longest shot would probably be 100 to 125 yards. I know you get what you pay for, but I am not looking to spend a ton. Would prefer under 200.

Do you think he last 10 or so minutes of the day's season, is worth the price of your gun? If so. maybe you want to pay the price.  I've hunted 50 plus years with bp and if I can't say  positive yes, I just won't shoot, and no scope is gonna make that call for me . Things are just not that dire. When I taught hunter saftey , the thing that used to T me off was , the wardens never told the kids why they wanted you to quit for the day., they just told them how much it could cost them.I can't say I would spend that much more to see a few more minutes.

BigDaddy check out the Nikon ProStaff 3-9x40 Rifle Scopes.  They are under $200. I had a BDC model which was very nice.  I didn't really need the BDC for my shooting but I was impressed with the scope.  They have an "inline" model also.
