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.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Sold a Blaser scope mount to him. He was a pleasure to do business with.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.
