scoping delema

i'm planning on scoping my old savage 42V,have to,the sights were removed and lost! thinking it should get a shotgun scope with the 20 guage. question , will a rifle scope hold up to slug shooting on occasion? hope to hunt with it next year

if you bought it, a trucker brought it

Re: scoping delema

A good quality scope should have no problem. I had a Leupold 2.5x8 "rifle" scope on my 12 guage slug gun for years with no problems.

If you look at a Leupold "shotgun" scope compared to their "rifle" scopes the main difference in the parallax is set for 75 yds and they have a longer eye relief. Other than that they are built the same as far as I know. Remember there are alot of rifle calibers that recoil more that a shotgun slug.

Good luck, Tony

Re: scoping delema

I suspect you meant the "24V".

But the choice of scope depends upon use. If you plan any wing shooting, try a 1 x red dot. It will work for the rifle out to 70 yards of so. You could also merely put the sight on,

Any good quality rifle scope will work on a shotgun. The 1-4x Leupold is very good and the 1x gives it the bes field of view of most anything on the market.
