Weaver Classic Extreme Series Rifle Scope - 8-32x50mm
Some time ago there was a discussion about these scopes. Some of the "hand cannon" guys were using them because of the long eye relief. How have they held up and do you still think they are good glass per dollar?

I have 3 of the 2.5-10 30mm Extreme Classic Scopes.
I have them on my Encore handgun barrels in 260 Remington, 7.62x54R, and 356 Winchester. I see no problems with them at all. The ones I have, have loads of eye relief in the 2.5-4X range. They seem to be a best kept secret for specialty handguns used for hunting. Mine have a great field of view, and covered finger turn knobs. The knobs allow for dialing in long range shots if you have a drop chart for your gun.
Things I Like:
Better field of view than you get with 1" tube pistol scopes.
Very bright and crisp. You can see in very low light through it.
Lots of Eye Relief in the lower power settings normally used when hunting.
You can Dial in Range Corrections for long shots.
You can turn the power up for sight in, or long shots.
Very good price as compared to other scopes that work well on a handgun.
The scope is a little large on a handgun. ( I can live with it )
