Thank you Buckmaster, I heard the sights are crap, any idea where to get a better set? Also I want to put on a scope with see thru mounts, any thoughts? This is my first go at this and its a little confusing. Regards - Gordy.
I had a see-through scope mount on my .30-06 at one time. Got rid of it. It sets the scope too high. I came to the conclusion that I had to decide if I wanted a gun with a scope or a gun with open sights. Now I have a scope mounted down as low as possible. Much better.
One of the most important pieces of equipment that you will take hunting is a good quality pair of optics and they take some care to give you the performance that you want. So here are a few tips.
Use some alcohol and cheese cloth to clean the lenses. I will usually pick up an extra cleaning kit from my optician when I have my eyes examined.
Don't touch the lens with your fingers. If there is a stick or a bug on them blow it off.
Use the lens covers. They are there...
