I have one that I like but its not the only brand I use.  I am looking forward to seeing the new tactical Weavers.

I have a couple of Weaver Grand Slams in 1.5-5x32 and like them a lot.  They are excellent scopes.

Ive used the Grandslam series and I think they are a great scope, and a bargin for the money.

I just picked up a Classic Extreme 2.5-10x50 and am very impressed with it . For low light deer hunting it is on par with my Conquest 3.5-10x44 ..........and is brighter at dark than my Elite 6500 2.5-16x42 ! So......for the money I paid........I can't complain at all !!

I have 2 Classic Extremes I bought from competitor for less than $300 a piece.

They are both illuminated.

The 1.5-4.5x24 is a great scope for the money.  IT works well mounted over the receiver of my Marlin 1895 .45-70.  It is heavy but solidly built.  It is quite bright at all magnifications and allowed me to shoot a Kudu at 240m in dusk conditions.

550 grain Craters at 1600fps tended to shift the zero, but I have not determined if that was rings (cheap weaver 30mm rings which were out of round...) or internal.  325 grain FTX at 2,050 fps work fine and it held zero to and from ZA.

Their 2.5-10x56 is a good scope but at 25 ounces is damn heavy.  It is admirably bright for the limited use I have used it.  It overwhelms the balance of my CZ 550FS in 9,3x62, so it will not live there, but I am likely going to use it to replace my Elite 6500 2.5-16x50 on my Savage 116 .30-06 for stand hunting.  It as the illuminated reticle which I need for long winter nights in the stand over pigs and fox.  the 16x 6500 would be a great varmint scope, if we had varmints in Germany.

Really that is the only drawback from the Bushnell 6500s (aside from weight) is their lack of illumination.  If they lit up I would put them on everything.  Fantastic glass.  Bright and clear even when looking over a moonlight field.  I just can't see the !@#$ crosshair in the dark... ;-)

I do like the Weavers, except for the weight.

Nice touch, replacing other vendors names automagically with "competitor"
