Weaver Tactical 4.5 x 14

I know that somone out there has at least one of these critters. I am looking for a copy of an owners manual for one.

If someone has an extra one, and feels like they might part with it, please shoot me a e-mail.

I am setting one up on a 25/06 to give to my daughter. I have the scope but no book. I figure she should at least be able to read about how to use it to best suit her needs.

I called Weaver today and since they quit making them, they have nothing for it anymore. I thought that was pretty silly but thats what they said.

Anyway, I appreciate any help on this.

Thanks,

Re: Weaver Tactical 4.5 x 14

I have one of the critters.

Got it used from SWFA and no documentation [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Kirby has maybe one at least if I remember correctly.

Just put the big end in the front and it'll do fine [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

The dots are 0.2 mil diameter and 10 mils from post to post.

Clicks trak well an are 1/8", I think. Or maybe its 8 clicks per mil. Like I said I have no documents either.

Much more than that confuses my little mind.

Go here for an eye opener. They are still around but even amazon is looking for manuals. Check out that price!!!Link

Thanks Roy, that helps. It's more than I had, and will save a little ammo testing it out.

Mike/TX,

I have 6 of these little monsters and would have more if they kept making them. For a scope for long range big game hunting where you will be using the reticle for hold they are very hard to beat.

I will look and see if I have a manual over in the shop. I think I still have a box on the rack so I will check and let you know, its yours if I do.

Kirby, check the link in my above post. They are apparently still available but at a pretty steep dollar sign..

Re: Weaver Tactical 4.5 x 14

Roy,

To be honest, that is not a terrible price for the scope you get as far as clearity and sharpness of image as well as consistancy from what I have seen. Still, for a few hundred more I would now step up to a Leupold Mk4 of the same power range. The Leuies are actually lighter scopes if you can believe it.

Thanks for the link though. That is about what they should have been charging but most were just dumping them off their inventory so prices got pretty low. I bought several for less then $300!!!

Re: Weaver Tactical 4.5 x 14

Sounds fair enough.

Mine was used and way less expensive than amazon has posted.

However, I didn't get the sun shade and my freezer deer honey hole almost demands one until about 8:30.

The 16X SS that I put on "Like a Rock" has the sun shade though, so I'm ok.....
