What I like about the Leupold rimfire scopes is that they're smaller and lighter than most others, so, to me, look better on small .22 rifles. I liked that about the discontinued Weavers, too. Of course, that's just my perspective, others mileage may vary ;) . And there is that lifetime warranty, as well.
I always liked the Weavers also. I have four, all Japanese glass. These are very good. I just don't know where they are made presently or what, if any, the warranty is. You get to liking a glass, then, they sometimes disappear. Dang.

I hear Ya Tom! There have been many things, especially clothing that I grow to like and when I want another, only come to find it is no longer stocked, or dis-continued. :roll:

If I were in tie-break decision between a Nikon and something else, I'd go something else. Conversely if the Nikon was a clear choice over something else, I wouldn't hesitate buying a Nikon.

To add another scope into the mix. I just ordered (on a "Black Friday" deal) a Sightron S 1 Hunter 3-9X x 32 Rimfire scope, with a crosshair (kinda old school). Midway has them for $109.00. While I have only one Sightron scope, a low power shotgun/muzzle loader type, I've heard good things about them. This one is fairly compact, at about 11", fairly light, and is parallax set for 50 yards. Worth a shot, right? :)

Be interested in your thoughts once you try it out.

That actually seems to be a pretty nice scope. I like the specs on it. Can't wait to see what you think of it at the range.
What are you going to put it on?

I think I'll put it on a Ruger American .22LR, that currently is wearing an old Weaver 2-7 x 32 steel scope (first one I bought for myself, in 1970), which has been "upgraded" from a centerfire rifle quite awhile ago. It has a lot of nostalgia going for it, but that's about all ;) . If I put it on my CZ 452 .17HMR, I could free up a Burris Compact 3-9 x 32 for something else, though. Decisions, decisions... :) . I will report on it when I get a look at it late this week.

I suspect that good companies like Leupold will be experiencing an uptick in sales
