    Hello all: Let’s see if anyone can help out the new guy…Any thoughts on a scope/ring combo on my .500 Smith for deer sized game? It is the 8 3/8 inch version with no existing scope rail. I recently started wearing tri-focal glasses and I have trouble beyond 50 yards with the open sights. I wouldn’t be shooting much beyond 100 yards. I appreciate any help!

    Not sure if this would work, but I know you could get a different set of iron sights for the gun that you could possibly see better with(Smith & Wesson sells a Fiber Optic pair on their website that will fit the .500).

      I would put a Red Dot on that S&W 500 it makes it lighter
      and faster to sight on Game, Personaly the S&W 500 is Over Kill on Whitetals, I to Hunt with a Hand Gun it's a
      Ruger BlackHawk 41Mag W/5.7/8"With a Burris SpeedBead It drops Deer in there tracks up to 80Yd +/- JMO

        I would go with a Leupold base and rings, with a low power scope or a red dot for the Smith.
