Hi all, another one here.  This may be the scope I'm after for my Model 7.
 
Any thoughts on a Weaver Classic V in 2x7?
 
You guys have been great helping me out.  I think I'm closing in on a scope now.
 
Thanks again!!
 
Greg

Really good for the money - My nephew has one on his Rem 700 Youth in 7-08. That rifle is vey accurate (unde 1MOA) so the scope is holding up its end.  I have Zeiss, Leuopold and Nikon scopes. All are sharper than the Weaver 2-7. All seem to be more rugged. BUT when talking about optics we tend to lose sight of the diminishing returns we get for increased price once we pass the "good enough to do the job" level. Quite simply the Weaver is more than good enough for the occasional (several times a year) hunter and trips to the range. I also have the 1 to 3 power on one of my AR's and its also "good enough" for that use.
The Weave is accurate, holds zero, is rugged enough for everyday use and has pretty clear optics. Clear enough to see deer and pigs and ground squirrels out to hundereds of yards .... Not bad for about $150!

Very good value. Solid optics. Not sure about its durability over the long term. I use the 2-7 for hog hunting in relatively thick woods. Easy to rapidly  acquire targets with the 2X.  Good choice for the money.
