The Weaver brand name is well known to sportsmen. The company has been making great optics, scopes and mounts for almost 90 years. And we’ve picked up a great deal on Weaver 3-9x40mm scopes. How good? $49.99.

Here’s the scoop. It is an odd time in the firearms industry. Venerable American gun manufacturers are competing to get customers to notice their guns. One of the ways they’re doing this is by partnering with companies like Weaver to provide guns that are already topped with versatile scopes.

Adjustments are 1/4 MOA clicks.

These package deals are a great value for those of us who don’t already own a scope. And they’re usually zeroed and ready for fine-tuning.

The 1" tube scopes are built of anodized aluminum.

But what happens when the gun companies place an order for scopes, but then back out and don’t produce the rifles they had agreed to pair with the scopes?

The package comes with scope rings, too.

That’s where we step in. And, if you’re fast on the old draw, you’ll end up with a crazy deal.

The Weaver 3-9x40mm.

The 3-9x40mm rifle scope may well be the most versatile scope configuration made. For most rifle calibers, the low end of the 3-9’s magnification is enough to get on target at distances as close 25 yards. If you know your way around your rifle, the higher magnification will allow for bullseyes out to 300 yards.

The protective caps help to shield the multi-coated lens.

At 100 yards, the field of view on this scope is 9.9 feet at the highest magnification, and 32.6 feet at the lowest.

The configuration came into its own in the later half of the last century when deer hunters across the US topped their guns with 3-9x40s. The versatility and speed make this perfect for hunting.

Adjustments are simple, and fast, and can be made without taking your eye from the target.

Yet the 3-9×40 is equally at home on the range. It is a favorite of many rimfire shooters who are looking for extra magnification that will maximize the potential of more modern rimfire rifles.

The 1-piece tube is filled with nitrogen to eliminate internal fogging.

The price on these is ridiculous. MSRP on the scopes is $157.95. We’re selling them for $49.99 until they’re gone. And that won’t be long.

At this price, the 3-9x40mm is a no-brainer. No more swapping that one scope between multiple guns. No more lamenting the cost of replacing that old one you inherited from your grandfather. No excuses.
