What determines eye relief? Also, recommend a scope.

What determines the proper distance from the scope to the shooter's eye?

Also, can anybody recommend a good pistol scope for my 2240? Most of the pistol scopes that I have seen have parallax set at 50 yards... Not good for an air pistol. Red dots are out. I want a conventional scope with medium to long relief, and at least 2x magnification.

Sweet - but expensive!! Burris is the only quality manufacturer that I've found with all the requirements that you've outlined.

Ouch!

Hmmm... Maybe I'll have to re-think this a bit. Perhaps a shotgun scope? They have medium eye relief if I understand correctly. I'm not sure about the parallax though. I seem to remember that Jim Chapman uses them on his 2240's with good results. Any thoughts or experience?

Optics are always a tradeoff.....

At 2x, I personally don't see that much of a parallax issue with a 2x scope inside of around 15 yds. I'm sure it's there, but......... The higher the mag, the more of a factor it becomes.

I've got 3 of the BSA 2x20 pistol scopes. They let me shoot my pistols like a pistol. The closest I shoot is around 15 yds, and at that magnification and range they do good. You can get them for about $40 at SportsmansGuide IIRC.

I'd really love to have one of the Burris scopes. I just can't justify it. For the way I shoot my pistols(15 - 30 yds), the BSA's work well.

Pick you pistol up and sight it like you normally would. See how far away the scope would be from your eye - purchase accordingly. There's a lot of hype out there.

BSA makes an inexpensive little...

2X20 scope If you want to hold it at arms length. I use rifle scopes on some of my pistols as well because of the adjustable objectives available for way less money. Some of the shotgun scopes are parelaxed at forty yards. So should be OK. Just have to pay attention and see that you look through the middle of the scope and then parrellax is not such a big problem.

Bingo!

I assume you're referring to this one...

http://www.sportsmansguide.com/cb/cb.asp?a=70786

If there aren't too many problems with the parallax error, I'm going to get that one. Does it come with rings? The website doesn't specify.

Thanks for your help!

I've been oogling the Swift 2x 663 scope because...

it's only 7.2 inches in length--the shortest I've found so far (and over an inch shorter than the BSA.) Does anyone have experience with this model? It sure would look good on a 1740.
