    I've heard that they are very good or very bad its pot luck on which you get. Unless you try before you buy

    loads of 35 or 36 x scopes perfect for Benchrest.

    Falcon will do 10m for 10m Benchrest, the sightron 36x42 will not.

    Best scope I had was a EB36x , found the sightron a disappointment by comparison.

    Seen a few older Leupold come up recently, very good vfm for Benchrest.

    Now I run Leupold comps 35x on both PCP, and an old bushnell 6-24x40 on my Benchrest springer.

    Herbie, look at the Sightron 36 mag, I had one on review a while ago and found it did the job perfectly.

    It's a shame that new there is very little choice, I suppose because people are no longer buying dedicated BR scopes, the Weaver T36 and the Leupold BR36 can be found S/h as can the Falcon T35. Alternatively pretty much anything in the 20 to 35(ish) will do the trick provided the optics are nice and clear and the reticule is fine, I use a Burris 8-32 with a fine plex reticule, but I also have a boosted Leupold EFR which has a fine hair and dot reticule, both of these work well. I did do a card recently using one of my Leupold Comp 45's, it was OK but a little IN YOUR FACE!

    I picked up a new Falcon X50 10-50x60 a couple of weeks ago and find it excellent optics. I compared it to my big Nikko and optically there's not much in it.

    Incidentally I was told that the X50 is basically a S3 in a different coat.

    Dear All
    Hello, it is my first post.
    I come from Poland, so sorry for my English.

    All what you need you find in Weaver T36.
    This scope was designed for benchrest competition.
    Glass, reticle, 1/8 moa turrets, AO from 15y and low weight.
