Weaver scopes are manufactured in Japan, to weavers exact specifications.
there is some growing speculation that some models in the weaver catalogue may be manufactured to an equally high standard in china.
Manufactured between 1947-1954
These Weaver scopes were popular 22LR scopes in the 50's and early 60's. They made 2.5X and 4X powers, then came the B series which introduced the 6X power you asked about. Later they also made a C series like C4 and C6. The B6 is a 6X power.
Weaver J2.5x and J4x were made in the late 1940's to mid 1950's and were often sold as economy sights for centerfire rifles, as well as for the 22 Rimfires.
High Country SPOTTING scopes are made by Burris. I do not find them using the High Country brand on rifle scopes.
Hundreds of thousands of Weaver Model 333 telescopic sights from 1930 to 1947. One of these scopes in good condition is worth about 80 to 125 dollars.
Marlin did not make scopes. They had their name put on scopes made by someone else.
In general scopes are not very useful in Paintball due to the relative inaccuracy of the Paintball itself and the tunnel vision effect of the scope. but if your Paintball gun had weaver or 3/8 rails, you can mount whatever scope (or sight, a better option) you wanted on it
The Scopes trial refers to the "Scopes-Monkey" trial in which a high school Science teacher in Tennessee violated the Butler Act that made it unlawful to teach evolution in schools. He was found guilty.
Its really depending on the length of the rail. The Steyr Mannlicher Scout (my rifle ;P) has really short weaver railing; called Weaver Scope Mounting Rails. The only real thing you would want to put on there is scope rings (to mount scopes) or other sights like iron sights or red dots. Hope this helps.
