I recently acquired KarlH's DWA 741 (41 Magnum) prior to the holidays.  It has a 10" VH barrel/shroud assembly and an 8" Vented barrel/shroud.  I am leaning towards the 8" vented barrel/shroud to save weight.

Since this will be my first hunting revolver, my question(s) to you guys are:

  1. What kind of scope would you recommend for hunting?
  2. What rings (one piece or two pieces) would you recommend as well?
  3. How would you carry it with the scope attached?  Custom chest rig or in a front chest pack?

Thanks everyone!

I know very few people want to do it but I swear by the Dan Wesson drill and tap mounts. ROCK solid - make sure to loctite and propertly torque the screws to 20 inch pounds.

If you're concerned about drilling and tapping a "vintage/old" shroud, buy a new shroud from DW and use that as your dedicated scope shroud? I tried one of the clamp-on mounts and they didn't last long and marred the top rib.

Bob at DW charges $40 to drill and tap, and $15 return shipping.

I run the discontinued Bushnell trophy handgun 2-6x32 long eye relief pistol scopes on mine. Very nice scopes for the money. But 2-6X is probably overkill if you're just deer hunting. You could probably use a Burris or Leupold 2x or 3X pistol scope to save room/weight.

Mine are target guns not hunting rigs. Using Leupold rifleman low profile rings
