I might be jumping the gun a bit (pun intended) but I'm trying to decide what to get scope mount and optics wise.

Option #1: Sniper Variation.

+ Rear Mounting - Requires Milling or Drilling - Restricts use of a stripper clip + Uses Regular Scope

Option #2: Scout Variation.

- Forward Mounting + Requires no Milling or Drilling + Allows Stripper Clip use - Requires Long Eye-Relief Scope

Dunno a shit about weapons but the scout versions looks cooler

Yah, the scout version does look cooler. Even though that isn't a pick of a stock K-98 it is a Mauser.

And yes on the second count, the sigs are working again!

Sniper looks better, imo, and it's not too far from the eyes. Seems like you have to look too far down for the scout varient.

Since pistol scopes are high relief as well and are often used on Scout rifles I'd be interested to see what killor has to say about using these types of scopes.

although his pechant for the simplicity of 1911's makes me think that he wouldn't be a fan of scopes on pistols.

KillorLiveWell, for scout rifles, like the Steyr scout which was designed purposely to BE a scout rifle, they're nice scopes. For handguns, I do indeed prefer simplicity. However, a .44 mag with a 2x20mm wouldn't be a bad thing to have, you know, when you want to hunt with a handgun. Putting something like that on an ottermatic would be pretty blasphemous, though.

But are far eye relief scopes (like the ones on pistols) gonna put me at a disadvantage?

If a typical rear mounted scope was rated a 10 out of 10. What would a far eye relief scope be rated out of 10 in comparison?

(sorta ignore brands, just assume they're both generic or typical)

KillorLive For anything scope related, I always go with Leupold. They cost more, but they're the best (IMO).

Plus you can get the German #1 Reticle! A must for any K-98 Rifle! Problem is that Leupold scopes cost more than the rifle I will be shooting with. not an option for someone who will be in school for another 2 years.

I'd rather get a Mosin w/ PU scope. Now to find the right redneck state to move to...

KillorLiveThat's true.

type in LEUPOLD on ebay and see how amny no-name scope pop up! I'm betting a few people buy one of those thinking that they got a LEUPOLD for less than 1/3rd the retail price.
