It's time to put my recently acquired birthday gift cards to use! :grin:

For the V2 owners out there which mount, rings, scopes are y'all using? What do you like and what don't you like?

Any ML owner can chime in to help! ;-)

Thanks!

Almost ready to get out and start shooting!

I just got the "dead on" scope mount on my AccuraV2. it's a 1 piece. they have 3 styles (high, Med, and low, I bought the low and put a vortex crossfireII on it. so far I seem to like it. Seems to be shooting good groups too

I think its called "dead on"
its not that expensive

I like my vortex scope, its pretty clear. also I wasn't sure about the 1 piece scope mount at first, but once I put it on it sat real well with me and I like it

I just bought the v2 a few weeks ago and it came with the one piece dead on mount already on it... I also have the Vortex scope, but haven't had time to mount it or shoot it yet. :-x

I was planning on just using the sights on my accura for this first season due to the cost of tuition.. But I have come up with a little extra money to get a vortex 1x24 and mount.

Now... Is it worth the wait to order a Dead-On from amazon or will any mount from Sportsman's work just as good?

I honestly dont get spending alot of money for a 1x scope... I mean, its 1x. As long as its sturdy enough to handle the recoil and not fog, what are people really paying for? Fancy name on the side?

I'm with Dallan... not much sense in spending a ton of money on a 1x scope.

I put a 1x on my muzzleloader last summer after shooting iron sights since 2009. I went with the Traditions 1x32 Hunter Series scope for about $50, a Weaver top base mount ($7.50), and some Weaver style rings ($10). Total on the invoice was $67 & change, but all of these items are listed for less right now.

Scope:

Base:

Rings:

I've been pretty happy with this setup. I compared the Traditions 1x32 and a Cabela's Pine Ridge 1x20 side by side last deer hunt at last light just to see if there was a difference between the two scopes & there was a noticeable and considerable difference with the Traditions 1x32 being superior to the Pine Ridge. I've not had the opportunity to look through a Vortex yet, but I'll be buying another Traditions scope for another muzzleloader that I have recently acquired.

Best 1X I owned is a Simmons 1x shotgun scope, for $80. Thompson Center later bought the rights to it and now they sell it under their brand name, but its the same scope... just $40 more.
