I hope it's not as strong as it used to be. In Halo 1 it was way too good, but in Halo 2 the magnum was a waste of hard drive. It needs a compromise, and I hope that's what we get.

Legend? You mean the rediculously overpowered go-to weapon for every serious player?

I sure hope its better than the Halo2 pistol, but it shouldnt out-do a assault rifle like it used to.

Nope it has no scope. EGM said so, Gamepro said so. A lot od magazines say so, so there you go then. It only holds 8 rounds and won't be as powerful as the first game but it will be a lot more powerful than the M6C magnum. IMO it now feels closer to what Bungie intended it to be in the first place: A good sidearm when other, more powerful weapons don't exist.

There wasn't a scope when the pistol was unlocked in the beta (if that counts), and Bungie's constantly been saying it won't have a scope. To be honest, I'd be surprised if it did; 5 (or 6) shots ending with a headshot to an unshielded opponent is once again an insta-kill, and when the pistol is dual-wielded with another pistol or a plasma pistol, it's powerful enough without getting a zoom feature. Bungie knows Halo 1's pistol is overpowered, and Halo 2's pistol is underpowered, so they're simply combining the two. Which is fine by me.

Now that there is dual-wielding, using a scope while having a weapon in each hand would be a little confusing for me.

They won't have dual-weildable scoping weapons. It'd be unpractical and unbalanced.

Ah, it's been confirmed not to have a scope. In the recent weapon information postings on Bungie.net: "The M6 series are recoil-operated and magazine-fed. The ‘B’ and ‘D’ variants are issued with the smart-linked KFA-2 x2 scope." Halo 3's pistol is an M6G, so it doesn't have a scope.
