for over 3 days now.  Are they OOB?

I was thinking about a Swift Premier 2-7x40 or a Weaver K4 or Weaver V9 for a Winchester 94 with a side mount.  I have a scope on it, but I need something better.

Any news here?

I can get the Swift for <$150 with another mail-order vendor and the Weavers are from $140 V9 or $112 for the K4.  I haven't looked at any of these personally, I hope to verify eye relief before I buy one.  I may drive to SWFA, if they have a store front, they are ~50 miles from me (I'm north of Dallas).  I know this forum is sponsored by SWFA, if they have them, it will be hard to walk out the door w/ one.  I hope they can work on the price for me.

My Winchester is being refinished with Duracoat, which will take a few weeks.  I'm having the S&K mount finished as well.  I shot the largest deer in my life with that rifle/mount and a cheap, leftover Redhead scope in November.  Five seconds later I shot a bobcat.  The scope did it's job, I've shot 3 deer now and the bobcat, but I need better, it's optics are poor.  I have a Burris FFII on my .30-06 now, and the Redhead came w/ that rifle when I bought it new 5 years ago.  I've had the Burris for 4 years now.

My hunting partner just bought a Bushnell Banner 1.5-4.5x32 for his new Marlin 336, but I'm okay w/ a larger objective for maximum brightness (even if my eyes can't use all that it will provide).

I actually have a Swift Premier (8-32x50), and my dad has a Weaver V24 (6-24x42).  The Weaver is absolutely hands down the better scope of the two.  No comparison at all (both on 20 power).   I could kick myself for not spending the extra $70 for the Weaver.

I have a Swift Premier 3-9x40, That I think is way overpriced, to me its like looking through fog at dusk and dawn. I would look at the Burris FFII or the Bushnell 3200 they are in the same price range and magnification but, I have a 2-7x 32 Pro Staff on a 10/22 that looks better to me and is a little over 100 bucks.
