Weaver? Why?

Grand Slams are good.

Fixed K-series scopes are good and inexpensive (I wish they had not discontinued the 2.5x20).

Hello Koshkin

 

IMO I feel the quality has degrated,Weaver is not a brand I recomend.

The new Redfields are also in this group IMO. There are also many

models from the major brands that I do not feel are  quality optics,

With the great selection of scopes and the prices available now I

feel we as the consumer are calling the shots and shoud not settle.

I'm with koshkin on Weaver. Definitely doesn't belong on a list next to BSA, Tasco, etc.

Sorry guys I know weaver is not as bad as some of the scopes listed but IMHO

I fell there are much better scopes right now at incredible prices and I would not

recommend a Weaver under any situation. I will take Weaver off my sh*t list. I do

stand firm to my opinion that weaver's quality has degrated. Weaver is the best

scope meade makes IMO.
