    I just went a different direction on one of my older rifles...

    I've got a 1963 Sears 46C (Marlin 57) Levermatic...
    and I found a Sears 4x Ted Williams scope for $10 at a local pawn shop.


    Ten bucks?? You know I couldn't resist!!
    Gave it the TINK test, it passed, so I bought it and slapped it on :)

    Also with Center Point scopes, they themselves will take care of any issues you may have. I had a 3-9x32 that I'd bought at wal-m and had it over a year and was having some issue with it (that to this day I dont understand), anywho..called CenterPoint and sent it back to them and in about a week of sending it back I had a new one. It's back on my .22 and so far, doing great! Another +1 for CenterPoint's! Low price, mil-dot recticle and illuminated recticle, also the battery life on the newly replaced one...it was in my safe on for almost 4 days. Still as bright as it was before leaving it on...:confused:

    Since centerpoint scopes are being tossed about I have one of the 4-16x40AO scopes that started life on my CZ452, I have since gone to a Barska 8-32x50AO since I use this rifle for paper punching only. I also have a Gammo Varmint hunter that I am having repaired after shooting some of their "PBA" ammo. The result was a broken mainspring! because the ammo was too light. So when I get the rifle back the centerpoint will go on the Gammo, and the crows are in trouble!:D Doug

    Locked it on to a bench vise and gently whacked it a few times in various directions with a rubber hammer.
    POA (Point Of Aim) didn't change, so it passed.

    If you hear a TINK or cracking sound...it failed...LOL
    If it doesn't hold POA, it fails.

    For some reason TASCO scopes fail this test a LOT...

    I own and highly recommend Weaver V Series scopes. Adjustable Objective is worth the money spent if you will be shoot from varying distances. Good luck and good shooting.

    I also am partial to the .22Mag scope by Simmons for rimfires. I have the 4x model on my Ruger 77/22 in .22WM

    I shoot silhouette with my .22lr. I am constantly changing/cranking my turrets up and down as well as some back and forth. I would like to find a reasonably priced, high magnification scope that can handle a whole lot of adjusting for extended periods of time. Anyone know of such? Thanks, Ab

    Without question the Weaver T scopes are the best.
    They also happen to be the best value.
    The only real question is; What power?
    You have a choice, I believe they start at 10x
    and they go up to 36x.
    Keep in mind that I am 3 time State Champion
    and placed 25 at 2010 NRA Nationals.
    Cathy Winstead always uses a 24x Weaver T.

    Dear Sir,
    My main (standard) heavy rifle is a Kenyon
    built Anschutz 54 single shot with an Anschutz
    light profile stainless, Border barrel. It has a
    Neal Ward carbon fiber thumbhole stock, pillar
    bedded and molded to fit me, by myself.
    On top I have a Leupold/ Premier 18x-40x scope
    in Kelbly rings on Davidson bases on a
    receiver rail. It also has a Time Precision tuner.
    It will shoot 10 shots .65in. at 100meters,
    with little wind; and match ammo.
