Not yet. Looks like a long eye relief scope is the only answer. Very strange this 88 is trying to fit up a scope to me. Must be the stock configuration but really don't have a good answer. I was so hyped up with finally filling one of my long time dream rifles then giving me the most trouble scoping it. Good things come to those with patience I guess???? 2-3/4 to 3-1/5" eye relief scopes will not work for me on this rifle. I've now had 5 different scopes on it and still not right. None of the scopes were of the 5" relief type as I only have one and just installed it on the Omega. The Redfield was of no help today. Never having a 88 before, I didn't expect an issue as you can tell from my frustrational (probably not a word) posts, but better than getting wacked for swearing. Going to the range in the morning without it, for now.
