I reckon you could get away with a 25 times magnification but not get the best scores. The Nightforce Bench Rest scopes are much more reasonably priced than the NXS series and I would say have better clarity and reticle. I have one of each and use them regularly so feel qualified to make that statement. The Sightron used to be a real good value for money scope however they have increased prices as people and brand have caught on.


very good advise here
and just so you know the Burris eliminator is a good scope for hunting but the reason it isn't very good for targets is that the dot is as big as a rabbits head at 500
I know because until recently I had one, the dot is way to big for small groups, I must say I really did like the scope but sold it off for a second hand 8-32x56 nightforce br scope way more suited for what you want

The 223 barrel cost me an arm and a leg i didn't want the adaptor so it's the last new Nab barrel made for a omark action , I have only shot it at 50 m at St mary's without a scope just sighting along the barrel and I was impressed the other omark is a boring rifle keeps shooting through the same hole even with factory loads must take it out to Malabar see how they go over a real distance that will probably be next year now.
As for parts I am starting my collection I have a 308 barrel and bolt head now haha Question has anyone ever seen an Omark set up in 243 im sure I saw one the other week just cant rember where


I have one in .243
Barrel was shot and mab had well priced 243 barrel for it so my father (when it was his)
Shoots bloody well and more than happy with it.

Was doing some spring cleaning today and stumbled across an old document, (scanned copy of the original)
it is "What you Should Know About the Sportco 44" gives you an overview about the rifle, Cleaning Instructions, How to dismantle the bolt, trigger adjustment, Specs and parts breakdown.

Would be happy to share it around, I scanned it onto the computer so could email it out.
If anyone wants a copy for send me a message.

Hey Mate,

Yeah no worries, I have re-configured my computer since I last scanned it in. So I will do some digging around in my back-up files to see if I still have it.
If not I will scan it back in when I go back to work. :thumbsup:

Hi Mulder,

I'd love a copy of that document as well, if you still have it floating around.

Just picked up an Omark myself.

Wondering if you have any leads on an Neilson adaptor for my rifle. Barrels are hard to come by and would like to re-barrel my second rifle. In Canada. Any help greatly appreciated!

I don't know what this is, but is it something any machinist can turn up for you?

Good for you 033, what are you going to use your second rifle for? Is it going to be chambered in something other than 308?

For an old Omark or for a new barrel?

Have you used any TSE barrels? Have they shot well?

Had an MAB chrome moly 223 barrel on an Omark a few years back and won a truckload of prize shoots with it over several years. It shot extremely well and just kept on performing. I retired it at just over 9000 rounds (yes 9000) when X counts started to drop off at long ranges. It was an unbelievable barrel so I sectioned it after removal to take a good look. Rifling was very shallow for three or four inches but the lands weren't badly rounded off. The rest of the barrel was still quite ok and providing it was kept clean it shot really well. I've had plenty of barrels since from other manufacturers but nothing has come close to that one. I've had other MAB's but have sold them on to new club members and quite a few are still shooting very well, but not sure of their current round counts. They are a good honest barrel. Regards Malcolm.

Gotta agree with grumpy 308! MAB now TSE barrels are hard to beat!
