I finally was able to get the scope I wanted. Another Weaver 2.5x8 used on an auction. Apparently I am not the only fan of these scopes. I had to pay new price or a bit above to get it. It is in great shape so I was glad to get it. That is plenty of magnification for the hunting ranges I will use this gun for. It is mounted and waiting for a fore end. Within a couple of weeks I should have it shooting.
