WM Malcolm Scopes

Produced by the Wm. Malcolm Rifle Telescope Company during the late 1800s, the company’s rifle telescopes were considered the finest of their day. Taylor’s & Co. is proud to offer the finest rifle telescopes of our day, close duplicates of the Wm. Malcolm originals. Two basic models, the long 1860s-1870s style and the shorter 1880s-1890s style, cover all scoping needs. These scopes work for every rifle from late-model percussion muzzle-loaders, through the black powder cartridge rifle era, to the early smokeless cartridge rifles. True to the originals, the long-tube model features a graduated "rabbit-eared" rear scope ring and the short-tube models a "caged" rear scope ring. Both are adjustable for windage and elevation.
