Anybody fond of WEAVER?

For a fellow on a budget, it seems that the weaver scope with the micro-track is a hard bargain to ignore. I ain't one for being a "clarity" fanatic and hunting the last five minutes of legal light. To me, tracking and ruggedness far outweigh clear glass. That and a generous and forgiving eyebox for and plenty of eye relief for the boomers.

Anybody really like the Weavers with microtrack?

Re: Anybody fond of WEAVER?

While some might say because they are not made in Germany that they could not possibly be worth the box they're shipped in, I think that they are a very nice piece of glass. Often times, people with the right eyes say they look clearer than most others.

Tracking has been reported good and I have personally seen them work fine.

On the 100 yard benchrest seen, if it isn't a Leupold it is a Weaver. Oh, but that is American BR, not German BR. THey are probably better than the red white and blue in that area too (even if they don't have a BR circuit).

I use a weaver tactical and am super pleased.
If I were certain that other weaver models were as robust at the tactical they would be in the group for consideration.

DixieFreedom, I have been useing a V16 weaver on my 22 Hornet for 9 years with out finding too much to complain about. It tracks very well for the dollars spent,and has been completely reliable.

Re: Anybody fond of WEAVER?

I know the 36 power weaver track well and they don't have bad glass ,but there varibles are another story. My friend is on his third weaver 6-24 and each time he gets his scope back its not much better than the one before. The glass quality in his scope is about the same as a simmions. The glass is terrible. I am not bashing the weaver 36x, because they are a completely different animal. But his 6-24 is a terrible scope .

For hunting situations, I have never seen a bad review of the Weaver Grand Slam. Their 3-10 looks very interesting. If only they could offer reticle changes!
