I'm looming at a Schmidt summit 2.5-10x40. Does anyone have one of these on a CZ 550 375 length action? Trying to figure out if it will fit before I drop the cash on the scope. Also any first hand experience with this scope would be great. Anybody run one of these?

It should fit no problem. Tube is quite long. I love my S&B's but really??? I'm disappointed in mine. Have it on a M70 SG 30-06. It works but acts more like a Leupold than a S&B. You make an adjustment and it has to shoot in-then reticle is stable. Never had this in the 30mm S&B's. Eye relief is very good though better than the 30mm models, also you get this donut in the eyepiece and not so forgiving. I do recommend S&B but not this model.

This was not one of their finer products. Just my opinion so make of it what you will.

The Schmidt Bender Zenith 3-12 fits, with not a lot to spare but man what glass. I have never seen the summit . You should.be able to compare the dimensions of the two on their website.

Thanks guys. I ended up passing on this scope because it only had 25 min internal elevation.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
