I just acquired a Maverick (made in Japan) scope, a Weaver El Paso 2.5,  and a Thompson Center scope. Any info on these or if they're worth mounting on anything? I've never used them as they were just on rifles I recently purchased. thanks

  Don't know a thing about the other two but the K2.5 was one of the main scopes used back in its day on the heaviest recoiling rifles. If in good shape they are still sought after for use on them. I was lucky and had mine tuned up by Weaver Scope Repair Service before they went out of business and it's one scopes I'm going to try on my Mauser 9.3x62mm when it's done.

  YEPPER!  And Finn Aagaard had one on his .375H+H and I believe his widow Berit used it on buffalo in Australia not to long ago.
