I haven't mounted it yet. Yesterday I bought a used Weaver 2-10x38 Made in Japan scope for $100 from the gun shop.

Anyone have any idea of what model scope this might be. I'm hoping I didn't get screwed. I checked the prices on current model Weaver Scopes and even their airgun scopes were $100+ so I'm hoping I bought quality.

Eventually I will mount this to my A3 flattop upper. I bought rings for it already (Millet Medium) but I just read something on here yesterday and I might buy some Warne mounts and go that route instead. I'd like to be able to take the scope off and re-attach it and still hold zero, but I don't know how realistic that hope is.

I have one of those scopes and I think it is a good scope. $100 is a pretty good price. I like the B-Square mount...it is one piece and easily removed and remounted.

See, now this confuses me...when I was in the gun shop, they had a few scoped A3s on hand. I thought the extra high mount gave a shitty cheekweld. The "high" was about right, but still a little too high. They didn't have any mediums mounted for me to try, but I bought the medium anyways, because it was lower than the "high" which was a bit too high. These were all Millet rings, I believe. This is a pain in the ass...trying to make a decision like this without actually trying it out. What's your return policy like C4iGrant? -Nick Viejo.

I put my Aetec in the ARMS #22 high rings...absolutely perfect for me on the #38 as pictured here. Zeroed fine, even though it seems kinda high over the bore. [img]http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-7/188491/modular1.jpg[/img]
