Hi guys, how's it been?
What do you guys think about a clearidge 4.5-14x40 on an s200? Purpose, I would say 80% non-competitive target shooting and 20% hunting.
Too much scope? Too large? Too heavy?
Length = 14.5 inches.
Weight = 19.4 oz
Never owned anything larger than a x32 bell size
... perfect for my CZ 200S (same gun). It's about 12 inches and 12 ounces.
This is all subjective of course, but to me 14.5 inches and 19.4 would be a little more than I would like, and it might make the gun a bit top heavy. That said, I think your proposed scope is doable, just not ideal.
