Where to buy Weaver K2.5 or comparable scope?

Midway is out. Nanchez won't ship to TN. Both of these places advertised at $100. Other places ask $116-120. If anyone has knowledge of better deals, I'd appreciate a lead.

I am not fond of the glossy finish on the K2.5 -- so if anyone makes a scope of similar specs, quality and price with a matte finish, let me know.

I plan on putting it on a .22 rifle first. If it works out well, I'll move it to a .30 cal rifle...hope it can withstand the recoil.

No idea as to why, their site says so. Probably because they have facilities here and don't want to deal with sales tax collection...

Mr. Wolf, have you considered a Beeman luftgewehr scope instead?

I have a Beeman 2.5X on a 10/22DX. It's the cat's pjs. No coffee can or shotgun shell is safe!

Tennessee? Heck, I can't believe they let people in Lafayette order anything so dangerous as a gun scope...those people in Indiana are crazy...

I didn't check for your item, but I buy stuff from these dealers.

Master Chingchingkapow (a.k.a. TFL's don't), just to clarify, I didn't order it. I had my dealer order it.

Remember, at the temple, you told me the secret to running a successful bidness of my own temple is to delegate.
