One of the things we have GOT to do is get a good long distance rangefinder.
And something else about those weavers----I put them up against my brand new nightforce and they are clearer. Pretty amazing.
the weaver spotting scope of that vintage was a great scope. you are locked in at 20x however and that is sometimes too much and other times not enough as you no doubt know. weaver also made eyepieces fitting other brands of scopes which are also excellant.
im just assuming your moving a scope in order to change users?
not a good way to go as it also affects alignment.
i know a few guys who could build you a bracket for those. joel would also
as would others here. with those the scope would move but it would be part of the bracket and alignment wouldnt be affected. some guys are more proud
of their work than others and as a result prices vary.
$250 to $300 will put you in buisness however with your scopes of coarse.
if you really want to make somebody feel bad set those up next to a set of
swarovski 15x56s on a tripod and they will hate you.
as for the rangefinder, you might be surprised to know not everybody is using lasers.
if portability isnt an issue the old wild and barr&stroud units are worth owning.
i have a swarovski also but would trust it as far as i could throw it backwards.
i saw a wild on ebay about a month ago sell for under $100.
