Any of you guys compared the newer $500.00 ish scopes to the vintage target scopes, Unertl, Weaver, Lyman, Luepold straight powers, 10X, 15X, 20X, 30X, etc...

I'd suspect the quality of the mechanisms ( reads repeatability ) would be better on the vintage scopes, & maybe the actual glass quality, but suspect the glass coatings are better on the new scopes... & of course you wont find a mil dot reticle on a vintage target scope...

I guess my limited exprience with the 2 Unertl's I own ( a 15X & 20X ) is the visability is as good as the modern mid priced scopes... I like the fine target cross hairs on the vintage scopes & the variable power of the newer scopes
In life you either make dust or eat dust...
