Description

Extension Tube for the William Malcom Telescopic Riflescope.

By the turn of the 20th Century, Malcolm had become the leading scope manufacturer in the U.S. The company would continue in business until WWII. However new optical technologies being developed in Europe along with the development of smokeless powder and jacketed bullets made his designs obsolete by the time of the Great War. But in that time between the opening of the West and the death of the great Buffalo herds, Malcolm scopes saw it all.

In 1855, William Malcolm started building riflescopes. He understood that a riflescope must be properly constructed to hold zero. He made his scope tubes by the same procedure as was used to build rifle barrels, by boring them from solid bar stock. The lenses were mounted in a separate housing securely screwed to the scope tube.
