Re: Budget Long Range Scope
Torchrider, I've owned both Nitrex TR2s you are considering for one or two months. Mine have the trexplex reticle....saved a $30-40 on each with it.
I'm very happy with my Nitrex...the clarity/brightness of the Japanese glass is quite good. To quote a very scope savvy buddy at range who spent a couple of minutes with my TR2 3-15X42 SF at shooting bench viewing downrange, "Da--, this has good glass." Four other scope savvy gents I shoot with on a regular basis will each take a turn with the Nitrex and all will be impressed with it. General consensus of my Leupold, Sightron, Burris, Zeiss user buddies, "if it holds up, has no internal problems, then its a heck of a scope for a heck of a price." All like its other features too, SF, pullup turrets for example....thought elevation/windage had nice positive clicks. Nothing about scope suggests anything cheap about it. Only negative thing I have to say about my Nitrex....on the heavy side as far as weight. Scope built and tested to withstand 375 H&H recoil. By the way, ATK owns both Nitrex and Weaver....tr1 is Weaver Grand Slam and tr2 is a Weaver Super Slam.
