I stopped at my cousin's last night and he had a 2.8-10x44 Intensity Scope he ordered from Natchez. They were made by Weaver for Federal and are on clearance right now. We were both amazed at the light gathering and clarity of these scopes. We put it up next to a Buckmasters and Monarch and we both agreed that it was a brighter/clearer scope than the Nikons. I don't know how they will handle recoil but they seem like a very good scope for the price. He paid $70 for his at Nathcez and I found the 3-10x44 at Sportsman's Guide for $49 and ordered one for myself and two for him. I'm not trying to advertise for any of these companies but thought that if anyone is looking for a decent scope for a good price, you may want to check these out.
