My comment about fixing a variable scope on 1x was mostly a joke.  The optic I was talking about is a $2k optic, so putting JB Weld on it kind of followed the joke theme.   :chuckle:

I did order the new CVA Paramount HTR in .40 cal, so if the law changes, I’ll get something figured out.

or scopes not exceeding 1x magnification. Fiber optic sights are legal. Telescopic sights ((or sights containing glass)) are prohibited.
(c) It is unlawful to have any electrical aiming device ((or
equipment)) attached to a muzzleloading firearm while hunting except
for red dot or other similar electronically powered scopes not exceeding 1x magnification
. It is lawful to mount a video camera to your
muzzleloader while hunting provided it cannot be used for aiming the
firearm

Unless they clarify, I personally wouldn't want to risk moving that discussion from the field to the courtroom.   I'll just spend the money on the 1x.  They are available.  ;)

How Is a scope pinned at 1x capable of exceeding 1x?

Similar to a plug in a shotgun. Removable but meets the criteria..

By what it reads on the scope?  :dunno:  I'll do what I'm comfortable with.  Let others work it out their way.  Maybe the final print will clarify.   :dunno:  :brew:

It’s all been done before in Utah.  G7/NF came out with a 1x, Leupold “fixed” variables @ 1x from the factory.

I would believe a PERMANENT pinning would qualify. Not just a set screw or safety wire or glue.
Sort of like a barrel extension or blank gun conversion. It must be permanent.

If they will let a plastic plug be legal in a shotgun that can easily be taken out in the field. To change a legal gun to a illegal gun.

I don't think they are going to fight a guy over a glued/epoxy scope fixed at 1x.

If they grab it and it turns your going to get hammered. If they grab it and cant turn it, I think you will be ok.

Exactly. I mean you can paint over the numbers 1,2,3,4 ext if it makes them feel better. But you scrape off the paint on a scope and jb weld that sucker it WILL be permanent lol
