OK you guys convinced to get a Kahles CL a couple months ago, let's spend some more of my money :)

Need a silver scope w/40mm obj. and more than 10X. Choices seem limited to:

Loopy 4-12 VXII. Problem is it's actually a 4.3x-11.2X
Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14 is this crap?
Burris FFII 4.5-14 solid performer
Loopy VXIII 4.5-14 actually 4.8x-14.2 a little pricey for this rig
Weaver grand Slam 4.5-14

Am I missing anything?

Thanks/Kevin

There are also some silver Sightron S2 scopes available.  I am pretty sure they have a 4-16x42 scope.  It is optically about on par with Monarch and Grand Slam.

buckmaster not crap!!!

 

FFII manufactured by cannibals in pacific Islands!!!

 

just kidding, there about the same, but I sold my FFII a while ago and bought a buckmaster to replace it. The resolution is about the same, but the nikon will let you zoom without the whole damn eyepeice turning.

The Bushnell Elite 4200 in a 4-16x40.  Yeah I know, the AO ring is still out on the end of the objective but I like the 1/8" reticle adjustments over the others you mention.  Another plus is the tube length; there is plenty there if you are mounting it on a rifle with a real long action.

I forgot, you wanted a silver scope.  I don't know, if color is worth it but each to his own!

Goz-

Trust me, I dont't "want" a silver scope, it's just going on a wood stock/ss rifle, so I'm thinking a black scope would look goofy. Now if it was a synthetic stock/stainless, the black scope would look good.

Anyone got any pics of a wood/stainless/black scope combo?

Thanks again/Kevin

I don't see much chatter about them on the forum, but I have 3 Grand Slams & have found them to be great scopes (6.5-20x, 3-10x, & 4.75x).
