How do the Pentax Lightseekers compare to the Weaver Grand Slams for optical clarirty?  Anybody have the chance to check them out?  How about you Chris or Brady?

I have a Pentax Lightseeker 2-8x32.  Unfortunately the only Grand Slam scopes I have spent any time with are 4.75x40, 3-10x40 and 1.75-5x32.  So the comparison would not be exactly apples to apples.  For the same money, I would go with Pentax.  I think the glass is a little better.  However, Grand Slam, I think, is a bit cheaper, so it might be a better deal for the money.  Another thing is that I find weye relief on most Grand Slam scope a bit too short and I do not like the oversized power ring.  That makes me lean toward the Lightseeker.  If I had to guess, I'd say that Lightseeker and Grand Slam will have comparable brightness with Lightseeker posessing an edge in resolution.

I have a weaver 6-20 grand slam on my 1000yard light gun and a pentax 8-32 lightseeker on my 1000yard heavy gun.  I like the optics of the weaver better.
