I am considering either a Weaver K 2.5 fixed power x20 or the Weaver V3 which is 1-3x20. I will be mounting it on a 12ga slug gun.

Any thoughts on the reliability/durability of these scopes ? Or any other recomendations ?

Thanks

Weaver

I just bought a Weaver Grand Slam scope. It appears to be a NICE scope, optics seem great. Time will tell how it holds up.

I do not have any experience with the Weaver V series scopes, but my dad does have a old Weaver K4 on his .257roberts. The scope is well over 30 years old, been on that gun the whole time, and has never had a single problem. In fact this past season he took a nice buck and a hog at over 100 yards. So I'm not sure about the varible, but I think the K series are good.

Weaver scopes

Cabin4,
My Weaver V scope has never been really tested,but I can assure you that the K scopes are as durable as any civilian scope.
I have two K 2.5's that were bought,new,around 1960.
One,which I got from a hunting buddy,has been reconned and fitted with a modern reticle.It is on my favorite rifle,a Springfield Krag.
The other,my origional Krag scope,is still sporting a post reticle and is on my Mossberg auto 12 gauge. This scope has a dent in the steel tube that would mark the death of most any scope.
About 12 years ago,I spent over 200 dollars for a Leupold vari X,and wound up spending 50 dollars on the old K 2.5,and putting it on.instead.
Both of these Weavers have had a real workout in the Catskills and the 'Daks.
