those have Click Value: 1/8" at 100 yds,,, that generally blows for long range work and it looks like a 1" tube... that makes for a high lack of usable clicks..

Well, this scope had enough clicks for 600 yard target shooting with a 7x57 Ruger 77. Have not tried it beyond that distance.

look up your load data, and see what you need to get to 1k, see if the scope can do it.. most 1" only have 30 to 50 moa total, minus what you need to sight it, that might only leave you with 15 to 30 usable "maybe"...

not to mention most 1/8th scopes ive seen dont have a even click count per rev. it will be like 7.5 moa per turn... this makes turrets useless.


but if you never shoot past 5/600 it might not matter

personally, i only use 30mm tubes with 60moa min. + a 20moa base this gets me 50+ usable MOA that will get me 1k+

Not very well known but excellent optics for the price. Very bright and clear. Alpen is known more for their binoculars.

I have always wondered about their scopes. I have a pair of their apex binos and they are excellent!

Any real world experience with durability and turret tracking,etc.?

I don't have the one I listed but do have an Apex model 4044. It's a 4-16x44. Have it mounted in my .221 FB. I called Alpen before I bought it and they said they're made in China to their specifications and if I had any problems with it to send it back no questions asked. I was kind of leery but thought I would give it a try. So far I'm very happy with it; no issues. I can't get over how clear and bright it is.

Here's what they say about their warranty:

"Our No-Blame, No-Fault, No Problem Warranty: If you have any problem with your Alpen product for any reason, send it back and we’ll repair or replace it FREE … period."

I'm going to try the one I mentioned in the near future.
