Just picked one up at a local gun store. Has am old R.A. Litschl scope on it. Never saw a scope tube that skinny. Wondering if anyone has one of these rifles and what they think of it.

I think the scope is probably an old long tube RA Litschert Spot Shot? They were decent scopes, however not quite up to the quality of Unertl, Lyman, or Fecker......

Buckshot, that is exactly what it is. hoping to find some new rings and base for it would like to modernize the scope.
I cant wait to get an opportunity to take it to the range. Also picked up a rem model 572 for my daughter. We are both anxious to try our new toys. Are you familiar with this modle rifle at all the 23d

I am not familiar whatsoever the gun, only the scope.........is the scope external adjustment? IE, the adjustment is on the rings, not on the scope itself??

I do not necessarily collect them, but I have several of them, I have a lot of vintage Winchester, Anschutz, and Remington target rifles, and they were all designed to use scope in that style...........if it is an external adjust scope, there isn't a whole lot you can change on it, and may have a hard time finding parts....I'm not sure how prevalent they are for the Litschert's...........if it is external adjust, you will have to leave it how it is, or you may be further ahead selling it, as they bring fair money, and going with a modern scope.......
