The recent Sightron sale at midway got me to thinking about some of the older discontinued scopes
What are some of the discontinued scopes that you would like to see made again

Mine would definitely be the Sightron Big Sky and the Bushnell Eite series

Leupold Vari-x iii 3.5-10 AO with multicoat 4. Weird how the old Leupies with coin-slot clickers and only 1 spring held up better than the “improved” models

Although a little short on eye relief

The Nikon Titanium.

The 5.5-16x44 was the clearest rifle scope I ever looked through........at ANY price point.

Truth.

Have a 6-20 on my 7-STW and it is very impressive.

I was sorry to see the Jspsnese Weaver RV7, RV9, and V16 go away. When Natchez was closing them out I should have bought a few more than I did. 20/20 hindsight strikes again!

I thought this was going to be about the SWFA fixed 6. Being there never in stock. 😵‍💫




Take care, Willie

What would be the purpose of an AO on a 10 power scope?

Two things mainly: heavy, uncomplicated reticles and 3/4 tube rimfire scopes.

Bushnell Elite with the Firefly reticle.

Great for low light hunting even without using the glow in the dark feature.
