I just ordered this muzzie from Carlos and will send it to Jon for full cleaning, mounting of scope, and sighting in. I plan on installing the KONUS PRO 3-12x50 and DURASIGHT mount. I do not have the capability to sight in. Any experience with this scope would be appreciated. Some will say the 50 mil scope is not needed, but my eyesight is not that great anymore so I am going this way. Any comments will be appreciated.  
                  
                    THANK YOU VERY MUCH CARLOS, you have come through as usual.

I dislike high-power variable scopes but it seems that's all they're making nowadays. I like a fixed 4x or 6x scope due to the lighter weight and lack of variable powers. It seems people try to use a scope to substitute for a pair of binocs, then have the power setting all the way up when they jump an animal close by. It's very difficult to find a running animal in a high-power scope at close range.

With failing eyesight, the 50 mm is probably a good idea.

I just did some reviews on the scope & there have been some issues including crosshairs shifting after a few shots which since they are etched means the glass can move. To be fair it was an older report on that particular problem. My main concern is only having 3" of eye relief on a fairly lightweight gun. Not enough for me, but that's me. If you can I would go with a higher end scope. True high quality glass throughout a scope will transmit more light to your eye than cheap glass with a large objective lens. I found this to be very true when I purchased my Steiner 8x32 binocs years ago. Just an incredible difference. The 50mm is massive & it's benefit is taking in more light in very low light conditions. It won't actually help you 'see" better If light transmission is your main concern then I would be looking at a 30mm tube as well. Of course money doesn't grow on trees & you have to find the scope that fits your budget the best. As for the gun, I have no issues at all! Good luck & hope it all comes together for you - Greg

I have decided to use a Burris 3-9x40, with the DNZ medium mount. Am selling the KONUSPRO 3-12x50 with the DURA SIGHT HIGH mount for $115, with free shipping.
