I'm aware of the fixed power scopes offered by Leupold, SWFA SS, and Weaver.  Are there any other manufacturers that offer fixed 6, 8, or 10 power scopes?

Schmidt and Bender 6 x 42 is a dandy...with a price tag too!

There are a lot of fixed power scopes out there.  A better question would "who makes decent quality fixed power scopes?"

That list is shorter and you have most of them in this thread already:

Leupold 4x28, 4x33, 6x36, 6x42, etc
Sightron 4x32, 6x42, and on upward
IOR 4x32 and 6x42 (these are easily among my favourites)
Weaver K-series
S&B: 4x32, 6x42, 8x56 and 10x42 (expensive, but awesome)
March makes a bunch of very expensive ultra high magnification target scopes that make every other fixed power target scope out there look like an airsoft scope
SWFA SS: 6x42, 10x42, 16x42 and 20x42
Trijicon makes a bunch of AR-15 specific fixed power scopes (ACOGs)
Elcan goes heat to head with Trijicon with its fixed power AR specific scopes
Browe makes fixed power scope externally similar to ACOGs
Hawke makes at least one decent fixed power scope I can think of: 8x56 Eclipse

Thanks for the responses. 
 Any thoughts on the Leupold 6x36 FX-II  vs. the SWFA SS 6x42 Tactical ?  I have 4X and 6X Leupold compacts mounted on Clark custom Ruger 77/22's and like them.  Now looking to scope Rem 700 .223 and a M1-A1.  Thanks again.

I like the SS 6x42 real well considering the price tag its a very useful scope.  As for the Leupold I prefer the FX3 6x42 it has better glass than the FXII.
