I want a scope that fits all those parameters, under 20 ounces. Does it exist?

Yes....US Optics...but it’s Chinese and I’ve avoided buying for that reason.

I think that is what you are down too. March is a great scope and I think they are Japan glass too.

I’ve been pretty good since all this mess started on keeping away from buying Chinese crap....got a deal on a Sightmark 1-10x scope so I bought it (great AR scope btw but the turrets are capped and I don’t think you can “zero” them) but when I got it home and started to unbox....CHINA realmad

March makes very nice optics. I'm just not into spending another $2500 for a scope. Especially if it's not another Nightforce.

3-15 or so. I'm probably going to end up with the new Razor LHT. It's everything I want except ffp. I have the Razor LH and it's been a great scope. The glass is pretty too.

Finding any 3-15 under 20 ounces would be difficult. Pump a little iron so you can carry the extra 5-8 ounces.

I just looked at the specs on my Bushy LRHSi. It's only 26 oz. I reckon I can make that work. Might need to stack some test cypionate, deca, equipoise and clomid to handle for the extra weight.

The SWFA 3-15 is close. Plus you can add zero stop and tape the windage knob. I actually enjoy this scope a lot. Why not the SWFA 3-9? Has everything but the parallax, which you probably don’t need on a hunting scope. If the scope is for the range, the heavier the better!

That Bushy is the answer to your question. Why sell it?
