Default Weaver V12 scope

I picked up a Weaver V12 scope. Would it be fine to put on a Kimber 82G US?

Expect the V12 may not have adjustable objective for parallax. OTOH, that's a good scope, so don't give it up.

A nice feature of the Kimber 82 is that it has a grooved receiver which will accept any type of .22 modern scope.

You can also get a Weaver Scope base which attaches to the grooves and allows you to use any other type of scope. I put a 3 to 9 variable scope normally used on a high power type hunting rifle on mine and got amazing accuracy with it.

That scope did, however, require about 3 inches of eye relief as it would with a high power centerfire rifle.

This is a V12-1 with MicroTrac (Fixed 12x, parallax adjustments, steel tube). It originally came off of a mid to late 70s Ruger M77.

I got a good deal on it but now I am trying to figure out how to use it.

So is this not a good idea?

I am a bit confused, but that's OK.


I thought the "V" in "V12" was for variable.


Get the parallax adjusted and enjoy.

What is a good mount/rings set-up to use?

It does. I have a V9 that I bought new in El Paso almost 45 years ago. Steel body and adjustable objective for parallax. It still works beautifully.

No recoil, so almost any .22rf mount/rings will suffice. I would be looking for a solid 1" set, height, eye relief, turret location, etc. The Kimber receiver grooves are slightly different than US standard and some slight adjustment (to a standard mount) with a file may be needed for a perfect fit. I have a Weaver (4 to 12) micro trac variable on a M70 .225Win. It seems to be a perfectly adequate scope. Good Shooting. ...

You might try "BKL"( or BLK?) scope mounts; no movement at all on my 82G. Good price also.
