Re: burris black diamond scopes
6brguy, they've redesigned the BD scopes to eliminate that annoying feature whereby the whole ocular assembly rotated instead of just the typical magnfication ring.
The new BD also features a side parallax adjustment knob, at a slight price increase as you might expect.
Also, the Pentax LS30 (lightseeker w/30mm tube) is virtually the same as a BD (made by Burris in CO for Pentax), and featured the regular mag ring and a smoother transition from the maintube to the objective (unlike the kinda blocky looking older BD version).
Some of the LS30 scopes were on a real good closeout a few mos back via Bear Basin if I recall. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
it's not about need in the USA -- it's about WANT
