I am collecting various Weaver vintage scopes. It is becoming a pretty interesting hobby. And, you can even use them on your rifles if you so desire.

ive got a few. 4 nikons a couple nightforce couple of vortex aimpoint some trijicon a nice old el paso weaver with the german post reticle but it needs a good servicing as my nephew unscrewed the eyepiece and let the regular air in :(

i like the older el paso weavers but ones in decent shape are hard to find here as most i see at gunshows are beat to hell. i want to add some more fixed power in the 2-4x range to the safe as they are just great great scopes.

my weaver held zero for nearly two decades of use on my winchester model 70 african in 458winmag.

How about the old weatherby scopes?
I am pretty sure I also have an old Weaver in the box also, it must be hiding in the corner of my safe

Unfortunately all the scopes I want are pretty expensive... :(

It seems military scopes cost more than the gun their for...
I wish I had the scope for my Weatherby MK.XXII, But I cant bring myself to spend $300 for a .22 scope..

I have a Weatherby 4X scope on an old model 70, .375 H&H. The scope was purchased new by my father in 1954. Still works as well as it did back then!:D

Also have a Weaver K-4 purchased the same year. It's mounted on a side mount on an old Krag-Jorgensen .30-40 cavalry carbine.
