Looks good....not to big, not to small. Should balance well.

In my humble opinion, that is exactly what a hunting rifle should look like. Walnut and a gold ring will never go out of style.
When the season is over, you can just gaze at it lovingly.

Nonsense.  This is 2020.  Deer are evolved.  If your rifle doesnt look like this and weigh 15 lbs, with a 30x scope, it cant kill a deer.  It is impossible to get any closer than 700 yards to a buck.

Dang it where was this stage advice before? My new scope doesn't go anywhere near that high, I'll never kill anything with it

As I confess to having scopes with high end mag of 24. 25, and 32, I also confess to be enroute to coming full circle refinding the beauty in simplicity.....

I personally donít have any use for a hunting scope below 5-6 power. To me it looks further away through very low scopes than without.  :chuckle:
I do practice hand eye coordination and target acquisition though so the limited field of view isnít a hinderance.
