513S Photo Shoot



Log in to see fewer ads
I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to take her out for a cleaning but I am sad that I wasn’t able to run a few rounds through her. She originally wears a rear Redfield 75 but I figured I’d put the Stith mounts on her to see how gorgeous she’d look and to give me a jolt of motivation in continuing my search for finding a worthy 7/8” scope that would pair nicely with her.
Between managing my work schedule, spending quality time with the wifey, having a 2 year old, coaching my oldest daughters soccer team, getting my other daughter to her club soccer activities the opposite days, getting the girls to their school volleyball practices and games and then having soccer games all weekend, there is very little “do what dad wants to do” time

Soon enough….

If anyone has a period-correct scope that is comparable in condition and would pair nicely with her, please feel free to send me a private message. Thanks in advance

Very nice!!!


I own three 7/8" (22mm) scopes. One of them is a Norman Ford Texan. They're nice scopes and would pair well with your 513S and Stith mount. Especially since they were made in Texas.
Others that would be worthy are a Lyman Alaskan, Noske or Maxell-Smith G88.

I have a 4X Texan scope that I won off of eBay with the intention of sending it off and getting it completely refinished but I haven’t had time to look into that either

If you’re interested in getting rid of it, please send me a PM as I’d like to see some pics
Thank you

I have looked into the Lyman Alaskan but in the condition I would like for it to be in, too rich for my blood

I haven’t even heard of the other, I’ll look into that one
Thank you for the info

Yes, they're proud of all the quality vintage scopes these days, but that 513S really deserves a good steel scope, not some cheap, flimsy thin aluminum kid's scope.


But there are deals still out there if you're patient and alert. I just picked up a German Pecar 2.75X 22mm scope with post and crosshair reticle at the gun show on Saturday for $40.
It is now sitting atop my Mauser Mm410b sporter in Weaver 7/8" see through rings- a perfect combination in every way!
