Bullie, I Was Really Impressed

with that nifty scoped auto pistol you carried on our Hunt Above outing in which you and Jiggs so graciously hosted so I've been watching for one for myself when I came across this a few days ago. I made an offer on it which the previous owner accepted today. It currently has an unmagnified red dot which I will remove. The bipod has a quick release so I'm hoping to find some glass that is holster friendly. Any ideas what to top it off with?

Nikon Monarch handgun scopes are not inexpensive, but they are a good investment.

Todd,
That is a cool little gun. I have seen them in gun shops but never had the opportunity to shoot one. Congrats! Should be a lot of fun. You will have to figure out a way to sling it.

Anyway, I do not have a quick and fast response for you concerning a scope. Since I have never held one up in firing position I really do not know what eye relief will be necessary. Ric was right about Nikon making great products...you couldn't go wrong there, but I think the first thing you will need to determine is how you are gonna hold the gun, while you are standing, before you start deciding on a scope.

It might be difficult finding a scope with eye relief to accommodate both bench and offhand shooting. It may turn out that a red dot will cover all your bases. Have you shot it yet?

Not yet. I did handle it for a few minutes and determined that the red dot throughout its settings was large enough to almost entirely cover smaller targets at anything more than a few yards which I why I feel like it needs to be replaced with something commiserate with the accuracy I expect from it. It appears to be most comfortable and steady when held by two hands in front of my face with the scope at a distance of about 11 to 13". I probably need to look online to see if there is a recommended stance and aim position for this type of firearm. Once I find the right scope for it I hope to be able to find a soft holster that can both strap to my leg or across my shoulder or back. It's exactly 19" from the crown to the back of the grip.

I'm really looking forward to carrying it next season for shooting the wooly boogers off them!

Ok. Todd, you might want to look at "Scout" type scopes or shotgun scopes if you want magnification. I would also look at a good quality red dot a smaller dot or reticle.
