Gun club had a flea market and I picked up this B&L 5-15 x 50 Elite 3000 as a spare for the grandsons.  $100

    It was a must buy price!  Putting it on the Savage .308 and taking that existing scope and putting it on the AR.  Or I could the 3-9 x 40 on the Henry 30-30. Choices!!

    I have one of their scopes on my Rem 700 in .223, good scopes.

    That line was picked of by another company and called their Elite series. It may have been Bushnell?

    Back in the 1960s the Bausch and Lomb was the top scope to have. Leupold and Redfield too were good. Weaver and Bushnell were the cheapest in price but they were very popular. All five of these scopes were great in their time.

    I had one i bought in 60 or 61 i think it was called the Balvar 6, it had a tapered cross hair that was etched on the glass and no adjustments, it fit in a spring loaded base mount and if memory servers me right the front of the mount was the elevation and the rear was for windage.

    When I was a young lad in Rochester, my Grandmother assembled those scope. Wish I knew then what I know now.  Back when Ray-Bans were made there, everyone in the family wore their sunglasses.

    Excellent scopes.   I had one on my 300 WSM, and it was a perfect fit.
