Bob and Tenkara, I bought the same scope, the Traditions 1x32 for 59.00. The very few reviews I found are positive for the most part. What worries me is that it only has 3 inches of eye relief. Mine arrived already and it seems to be a good scope

Where did you get it?

Given that it's 1x is should have a wide field of view? Could you look through it from 3.5 inches away and ignore the black ring around the edges of view?


Holding it up towards my eye l had my son-in-law measure the sweet spot which seems to be 3.25 inches. There is not much wiggle room, maybe .25 inch. If you can handle some gradual distortion around the objective lens you can increase the relief to almost 4 inches
BOOM ...That's funny ....BOOM !

There are 1x scopes to be found with some looking. I just bought a brand new Vortex 1x Crossfire II.  Crystal clear glass very impressed.

I quit the primitive muzzleloader season many years back due to the large increase in hunters. I believe that was in large part because the availability of increasingly lethal inlines. Question is, if we want to revert back to the spirit of the season, where is the cutoff on technology? Every gun seems a technological advance over it's predecessor.

Scopes. Scopes are the cut off. All the rest is just another way to go boom.

Well, my super duper $59 1x scope arrived today!

When I first looked through it I was disappointed. It actually seemed like the image was less than 1x. I couldn't see much value in using it in distances over 50 to 75 yards. Then the light went on and I realized I was was looking through it backwards. :chuckle:

Once I got it turned around, I realized that it is actually a little more than 1x: maybe 1.5x. The image through the scope is slightly larger than the naked eye sees. The scope does read "1x32" right on it, so I assume it would be legal.

I don't think there's much doubt in my mind that it is a rather significant improvement in the ability to sight.  At distances up to 150 yards on deer and maybe 200 yards on elk I would be quite confident taking a shot, nothing else not detracting.

It's a game changer.

Next stop the range.

Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.
