Default Scope for H&R Ultra Slug Hunter

Hi All. I tried putting a Nikon Omega 3-9 x 40 scope with Warne Medium rings on my 20 gauge USH. As I expected the ocular bell contacts the hammer spur. I could get around this with high rings, but even with the medium rings the scope is BARELY aligned (slightly high) with my eye when I have a nice cheekweld with the stock. It would be unacceptable with high rings. How the heck is everybody dealing with this? I see a lot of similar sized scopes being put on USHs, but I don't know if my head is just too small or if nobody else is bothered by this. I'd love to hear opinions before I start shopping for another scope :-\


Thanks!

Some folks have bobbed the hammer a bit and modified the hammer spur to fit lower to increase clearance. Need to make sure if you lower the spur it doesn't interfere with the barrel release when you pull the trigger. The New Redfield scopes have a small eye piece and fairly decent optics, however, I don't think they make one specifically rated for a shotgun. I do have one of the new Redfields on a 45-120 and it is still performing well after several hundred high recoil rounds.

Why be difficult, when with a little extra effort you can be impossible?

Thanks BB! Not sure I'm desperate enough yet to do surgery on my USH, but I'll definitely keep it in mind...

Thanks for the suggestions so far! Actually Spikehorn got me thinking - I wonder how a scout scope would do?.....

Try a Weaver 4x32 sotgun scope, you won't be disappointed.

Actually the Weaver K-series 4x38 was already in my top 3! Is there a difference between the K-series and the shotgun 4x32 as far as anyone knows, other than the diameter of the objective? Anyone know the parallax corrections for both?


Thanks again!
