Can someone tell me what is the best of the Simmons line and how each line compares to the other.  In other words, best to worst.

The difference between them is considerable...I have an Aetec, which is a very nice scope...clear glass, etc.  I have an 8 Point shotgun scope, and the glass is not very clear, and distorts at the edges.  I have an old Leapers 4x scope that's better than the 8 point.  I can recommend the Aetec, I don't think you can find anything as good for that kind of $$.

Chris....

How would the Simmons WTC compare to the Simmons ATV?

Never seen an ATV.  Can't find it in any of their catalogs going back several years either.  It might be a "made up" model that was built to be blown out at a low price.  When Simmons was being bounced around they damaged several established product lines by selling huge numbers at super low prices.  Making up a new name that never existed and then blowing them out would not damage an existing established product.  If this is the case and they planned on blowing them out cheap at a pre-determined price then you can bet they had a pretty fat margin built in...meaning that the ATV is most likely a low end below average scope.

Degee, i put the ATV right up there with a whitetail expidition in quality, low light preformance, and durability, and it is a wide angle scope which makes it very good for night hunting. shoot me an email at Redneckbmxer24@aol.com for a great source for info on the ATV. Chris, you can check out the ATV scopes at (competitor) shooters supply.

Actually the ATV Scope was Simmons attempt to get into the upper end Scopes in the early 1990's They ranged in price from $189 to $450. I have had one on a .300 Weatherby since 1991 and it hasn't fallen apart yet. It is absolutely accurate. with -3" groups at 500 yards.

Will the Simmons 6.5-20x50 Whitetail Classic WA Riflescope work on a PCP air rifle? They have very minimum recoil!
