    Re: Best low power Scope

    I'm not sure what you consider a "bust to your wallet", but I've always thought the Weaver Classic V-Series were pretty good scopes for the money. I particularly like the, low power, Weaver 1-3 x 20 (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tNumber=183610) for a levergun.

    Blessings...Mike

    I meant something over $300.

    Here's an article that I think does a good job of ranking a bunch of scopes by price range. Bottom-line, there's a lot of good "low power" scopes out there for $300.

    For $300 I'd go with the VX-II 1-4x

    Re: Best low power Scope

    If you'll go over $300., I'll mention the new Leupold line, the VX-R. It seems to have replaced the older Leupold Euro 30 mm line, of which I own two; a 1.25-4X20 and 2-7x33. The new line-up also includes a 1.25-4X20 and 2-7x33 and the major difference with them and the Euros is that they also include a "dot" type reticle. You can get a standard duplex with center dot or a #4 type reticle, also with a center dot. When my new 1895M arrives, my plan is to top it with the VX-R 1.25-4X20 with #4 dot reticle and have a scope capable of shooting any game I can see and identify, within the realm of legality (light). It will be used for hogs, which can be hunted in many locales well after SS. (no 30 min after SS restriction in many places). A good friend has already purchased the 2-7x33 VX-R model with #4 dot reticle and likes it as much as I like my Euro. I'm absolutely sure I'll like the addition of a "dot" when needed or wanted.

    Suggest Leupold Ultralight 2.5 (almost 5" eye relief on that one,) or a 1-4, or 1.5-5. All quality items with lifetime warranty. Good day, Jack

    This I-pad knows what I want to say and how to spell better than I do. Sometimes I catch it's mistakes, sometimes I don't.
