I was surprised to learn that I could not find a fixed 4x scope on the market except for the Leopold at around $400. Huh.

Although gun sales are up, hunting license sales are down. It’s probably more profitable to sell scopes with batteries in them, so they don’t last 100 years and you can sell more.

As a Burris fan, I see they have some nice affordable low power zoom scopes. The optical problems come when you try to really stretch the range of magnifications, the mechanical problems are from moving parts. One thing is for sure, I am a huge fan of the Signiture rings with the plastic inserts… they make a very solid attachment.
