Well, I was thinking of getting either the Weaver Dangerous Game scope 1-5x24 (Etched heavy plex) or the Burris Euro diamond 1-4x24(german #4)for a strictly short range brush gun. Does anyone have experience with these new Weaver scopes? I assume its optics are similar to the Classic Extremes they had and I heard they were really great. My biggest concern is the low light performance. I mean 24mm is still pretty small for a dark brushy wooded area.

The exit pupil size on the highest magnification for the  Weaver will be just below 5mm and the Burris will be 6 mm which should be fine. I've read that it's more of a matter of glass coating quality  than objective size for low light performance. I believe that 5mm or more is what's desired. The human eye varies between 4-7mm dependent upon age and eye health. Any exit pupil exceeding your eye's pupil size is wasted weight and size.

Your classic 3-9x40 scope's exit pupil size is 4.44mm at 9x power. Just divide the objective size by the magnification to determine the exit pupil size.
