I'm with Vince, I use a scope or red dot for hunting guns because I can't see iron sights well enough. I don't mind punching paper or popping plates with fuzzy sights but won't do that to game.

As for the "jack handle"... Here is my Win 94 .44 Mag with a 1X Nikon scope mounted on an XS System base.

Pistol scope Redfield Golden Five Star 4x fixed. Is it good enough for T/C Contender .357 Rem Maximum? Kauko.

From the posting on Redfield's web site it appears the brand has been purchased by an optical speciality company and the products are being redesigned. The 357 Max isn't a real firebreather in a 14" Contender. So, if you like the scope and are getting it cheap, it would be worth a try. With this reorganization, service may or may not be available on the previous product lines.

Redfield Web site


For a game hunting pistol scope, I'd get something like a 1.5 - 4 X from a good brand.

I figured that might be the case Hoffy. Nothing worse than goin' fishin' and not getting a bite...so I thought, yeah, why not...CHOMP Very Happy Laughing ROFL

Mike, you must have a long eye relief on that Nikon.

Glockman, I believe the scope was intended for muzzle loaders and has at least 9" of eye relief.

As for glasses... I wear glasses but it doesn't help me get 3 objects at different distances in focus.

Personally, I still shoot the Bushnell Trophy 2X-6X variable handgun scopes on all my handguns except a Super 14" Contender in 444 Marlin and that one wears a straight 4X, also a Bushnell Trophy. These scopes also do pretty well at dawn and dusk....

Check out the Burris 1.5 to 4 scope, I have one on a encore 444 Marlin pistol barrel. I like the way it works, would recommend it for your 357 Max barrel.
