    Leupold M8- 2x20 EER Scout scope

    I got a Leupold M8 2x EER Scout scope a few years ago for my double rifle project
    But it got burgled and put on my main hunting muzzleloader after I missed a very good red drag last roar

    Sorry no photo of the stag. I missed !

    So my double rifle build is back on at pace
    ( at pace for a double rifle build is still painfully slow ) and I now need to find another M8 2x EER to go on it for when I regulate the barrels

    Any vintage but EER and not LER ( made that mistake before )
    Something like this

    Also interested in any low power normal eye relief M8 scopes 2x 2.5x and 4x
    Or any older straight tube scopes

    Still looking !
    Double rifle made a little progress and then a couple of single shot restorations jumped the queue

    One of them needs an M8 2x EER Scout scope also
    So any out there that would like to live on an 1873 rifle ?

    Might be able to finally get something from USA when things start moving again

    Still looking
    Just thought i would refresh this post

    The one I had for my double rifle build them got used on a rolling block 12.7x42R
    And then the double for parked again

    Now I'm building a 577 Super Snider on an 1869 rolling block action with a new 577 Vulcan barrel
    And I think a 2x scout scope will be perfect on this rifle build
    Scout will be forward of the reciever ring ( as per my 12.7x42R ) and can be mounted ultra low to the barrel when it's out of the way of that huge hammer
    Also makes it easy to feed the big snider rounds into the chamber

    So if anyone has an M8 2x EER scope put aside for a project and it might not be happening and wants to sell please pm

    @Bill999 No problems there

    If you look carefully at the first image you will see that this is my winterised muzzleloader and it is running on 209 shotgun primers so no smoke at the ignition area
    I found it really challenging running that rifle tahr hunting and did get slow ignition at minus 10 degrees and missed one of the bulls I was able to get within range of
    And now that #11 caps are hard to find I'm running it like this all year round until 209s run out also
    Keep the #11s for my .72 musket
