Please give me your opinions

 

What is the better of the three?

 

Leupold M8 rimfire compact

Leupold FX-I Rimfire compact

or

Weaver Rimfire

 

in either 4X or the 2-7X

 

I looked at a 4X Leupold rimfire and was dissapointed at the optics.  There was some 'fish eye' effect at the 60 parallax setting and the lenses seemed to darken a lot at the edge.

 

Is leupold not what it's cracked up to be? or did I look at one that needs to be sent back??

 

thanks in advance.

Yep, I had the same problem with my M8 with targets of less than 50 yards. Leupold had already drop the M8 line.

Leupold FX-1 is the newer generation.

Hi; I have the Weaver Classic 3-9x32mm A.O. Rimfire scope on one of my 22LR and like it a lot for small game. I think it to be of pretty high quality. I would not trade even for Leupold VXI or VXII. The only thing on the Weaver I thought looked cheap is the plastic A.O., but it works fine and it is only a $200.00 scope.

If you want a good Leupold...I'd look at the EFR scopes.

For the money, Weaver rimfire scope are hard to beat.  Lower end Leupold scopes tend to be quite subpar.
