I’ve been pretty impressed with the new Weaver Tactical line of riflescope mounts and accessories. I’ve been suspect of this company since the last couple of owners screwed it up royally. Seems like ATK, the new owners, have really cleaned house and started fresh. The made in USA tactical line is a perfect example. Innovative products, made here, with items that are well thought out and usable. There’s an AR Ambi Sling Adapter that does not require you to remove your buffer tube. How come nobody else has thought of this yet? The Rail Mount Sling Adapter is another well made product that is half the price of other go-fast manufacturer’s offerings, and sure seems as well made. I just installed an Offset Rail Adapter and an Oversized Trigger Guard on one of my latest project guns and they are the nicest of their types I have seen. Again, they’re half the price of other offerings. The Rail Adapter and some of the other parts have such niceties as a screwdriver slot cut into the hex screws so you can use either tool to install and remove them. Look for these folks to dispel old myths about quality and innovation. Weaver is most definitely back in the game.
A friend John from Beretta was in the other day and asked me what the best values were in a scope. The Zeiss Conquests are great values, as are the Bushnell Elite 3200 and 4200 lines, and the top of the heap of best values may very well go to the Nikon Monarch 2.5-10, one of my favorites. I use all these products and those are the top values that come to mind. You can’t go wrong with any of them.
A shout out to the family of the guy killed in the car accident in front of my house yesterday. There was nothing I could do as a first responder, and it bothers My Shirley and me quite a bit. Our prayers are with you. It could happen to any of us at any time. Enjoy the time you are given.
