Interesting...not sure what to think about it??
Looks like the adjustable cheek piece style stock would be a better way to get your cheek weld near perfect. Anyway, I'm not going to knock it or be sold on it yet. I'll just have to let some time pass and see how other people like it. Thanks for sharing.

Re: 56MM OBJECTIVE SCOPE ON MEDIUM RINGS? YUP!!!!!

When is a dozen eggs not a dozen?

Answer; When you have cut off part of the carton.

In this case a 56 mm is not a 56 mm. It is probably only about effectively about 53mm

To get more light into the tube you must have a larger area on the objective or else better coatings and glass. Cutting off the bottoom of the scope reduces the surface area of incident light.

NO FREE LUNCH

I shot that scope several weeks ago, it is slick. No way to tell it has the wonkie shape to the objective. I bet it sells like hotcakes - it has big glass and most important - it is different.
