I have got a Weaver GS 6X20 fine/dot on my 77/17 works great, I have 2 V-16's, one on my SVT Kimber and one a Mini-14. Great scopes for the $$$$$$. I have used the GS and the V-16 on my 257 Weatherby with no probs. Check the eye relief on the weavers, it works for me but it's tricky for some shooters. Good luck to you.
