Last time I looked through the Weaver, I think I had a hard time just seeing one set of cross-hairs. I'll have to check again and see how it goes. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for the reply. I have read some good reviews on the Ruger, though, although some poor ones as well. I don't think I've heard anything bad about the CZ-527 except that some think it is ugly...
