The new Weaver 40/44 Series offers 16 different model options in 40mm and 44mm objective riflescopes for the cost-conscious shooter, with no sacrifice in traditional Weaver quality. Available in 3-9x40mm, 3-10x44mm, 4-12x44mm, and 6-20x44mm, in either matte black or silver finishes, the 40/44 Series offers three reticle choices: Dual-X, ballistic-X, or Varminter. Slug gun whitetail hunters will appreciate that two versions are offered with 50-yard zero parallax.
Four 40/44 Series models feature aspherical lenses, to reduce aberration and maintain edge-to-edge field clarity. The 4-12X and 6-20X versions have adjustable objective lenses, and all 40/44 Series scopes are waterproof, shockproof, and fogproof, and have fully multi-coated lenses.
