I posted about these earlier and have this same scope on order for my 6.8 for evening hunting (will switch to an Aimpoint for stalking)


from AR15.com

the top pic has a red arrow drawn on it and then a zoomed in pic of the same spot
impressive

Its a lot clearer than that, but in order to take a pic in the dark i had to have a 3 second exposure. I think its a pretty sweet scope.

Oh this is the 2.5-10x56mm with German Reticle. It is on max power, and that parking garage staircase is roughly 1050m away.

I just mounted one on my 300 WM Enore and am very impressed.  THe glass is on par with my Nikon Monarchs if not better.  It is a little heavy, but built like a tank.  If it performs well in the field, I will purchase another.

I had no idea that Weaver was producing such impressive rifle scopes.

That is impressive.  I was reading on them this morning and you seem to get a ton for your money with these.

I did a comparison of this Classic Extreme scope with my Kahles CL 3-9x42 scope in dim light and was shocked.  Waiting to hear your assessment.

No26. Anyone wishing to sell more than one scope of the same kind must provide a free sample to Koshkin.

I too recently purchased the Weaver classic extreme 2.5-10x50mm for $270 (from SWFA) and I am anxiously awaiting it's arrival.  However, I did have a couple of questions for those who already have the scope (specifically JTD0314 and dougedwards)  I was wondering if the both of you realized that the Weaver classic extreme is nothing more than a tweaked out Weaver grand slam.  I spoke with Weaver multiple times before purchasing the scope, and it was confirmed to me on every occasion that both models of scopes share the same glass, the same coatings, and are assembled in the same factory.  They are essentially optical clones of one another (Weaver's words, not mine.)  The big differences (and the reasons that I was compelled to buy the scope) are all of the other features.  The only reason I mention this is because both of you stated that the scope compared favorably with, and in some cases better than, scopes that are typically held in much higher regard (Monarch & Kahles CL respectively.)  And since I've never heard any such claims being made about the grand slam series in comparison to higher-end scopes, I was wondering if the both of you may feel as though the grand slam series is highly underrated?  Also I was wondering if either of you have a comparable Weaver grand slam with which to make an optical comparison?   Because, I'm wondering if what both Weaver and you two gentlemen have stated is true, then I'm really curious why the reasonably priced Weaver grand slam series doesn't have more of a following.  Thanks for taking the time to read my questions, and for the initial reviews on the scope, it's much appreciated...

The problem is that there was a time when Weaver went in a bad direction. There will be a period of time when trust won't be something readily given back. Sorta the way that Tasco and Simmons went as well. Simmons is working at it again, and so is Weaver. It will just take some time.

Well I guess that would explain perhaps why Weaver doesn't have a significant following, however that still leaves up in the air the question of why I've never heard anyone say they were optically comparable to higher end models.

There are some that do own them and have stated such. It's just as I said though, not many are taking the chance right now. If they are as folks claim, it won't take very long. Also it goes that, depending on what you mean when you say higher end, they might not compare in the eyes of some.

I don’t have a Weaver Grandslam, but if they have the same glass as the Weaver Extreme, I would not hesitate to buy one. For the price of the Extreme, I think it is a great scope and you won’t be disappointed. However, if I had to pay full price for it, I would go with the Trijicon Accupoint. I have compared my Weaver Extreme to my Monarch 3.5-10x50 and my Trijicon Accupoint 3-9x40 and it is hard to tell which one has the superior glass. The Trijicon tritium reticle is the better of the three when it comes to hunting in low light conditions and fast target acquisition. The Weaver has taken the place of the Monarch on my TC Encore Prohunter 300 WM and I am looking to purchase another for future Encore applications.

I had a WEAVER GRAND SLAM 3-10 x40   a while back. I never mounted it but I did compare it to my Browning 3-9x40 which is basically a 4200 Elite 3-9x40. The optics were close but I actually thought the Weaver had slightly better optics. The resoloution was a tad better but the view was a little smaller and the eye positioning was a hair more critical. The plex reticles on them were identical. The eye relief was stated at 3.25 but I found it to be more like 3.5 or more at 3 power. I also liked the adjustment knobs. I sent it back though due to the odd size power adjustment. I was afraid it would be to close to the bolt when cycling. It might have fit I dont know.

Just because of the name according to Weaver.  They wanted to have the name be more in line with the others so they came out with the super slam to replace this one.  Odd that they dropped the illuminated reticle though.

I was waiting for a question like this.  But all I can do is reply to what my old eyeballs see.  The glass in the Weaver CE seems incredible when compared to some very highly acclaimed rifle scopes on the market.  I would never have considered a Weaver anything if not the price been so good on this one.  I was going to take a look at it and send it back if the scope wasn't up to par.  To my suprise it was more than up to par.......it was outstanding.  I don't have a problem with tracking or having the illumated dot out of center.  However when I did receive the scope the first time it came with a splintered reticle and I shipped it back for a replacement. 
 
Maybe this scope doesn't really compare with others in it's suggested retail class but I did compare it with Nikon Monarch 2.5-10x42, Bushnell 6500 4.5-30x50 and Kahles CL 3-9x42.  Optically it didn't seem to take a back seat to any of the three even in dim light.  I have been waiting for others on this site to do an evaluation of their own.  Many in this message board have bought this scope in different configurations and are also suprised at the quality.  This example just makes me wonder if there are other rifle scope manufacturers who are not getting a fair look at their product from the buying public.  I can only wonder.
