Cabela\'s Alaskan Guide Premium Rifle Scopes

Just picked up a 6-20x40 to put on a 7mmRem Mag. Super clear plenty bright. Shot on Sunday with it if it holds up to lots of shooting its a grat deal at $360.

Re: Cabela\'s Alaskan Guide Premium Rifle Scopes

The glass in them is pretty compairable to the Leupold VXIII's and from the one I have on my Rem LV in .223 the adjustments are very repeatable. For the money you can't beat them but many will argue their not a NF and thats for sure but then they don't cost that much eaither. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
They also have about 70 MOA adjustment in them too which works. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Cabela\'s Alaskan Guide Premium Rifle Scopes

I have my second Alaskan Guide 6.5X20 44 Mil Dot. It tracks good and is decent glass. The first one came undone internally when I put the brake on the 338 Win. It was super on the 270 Win and held up on the 338 Win for about 20 shots after the brake installation.

If the reticle would have been in the first focal plane, as were the first ones, I guess, it would have been much better. Its calibrated at 10X

However, one phone call and they sent the new one. At the moment I have nothing to mount it on. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Cabela\'s Alaskan Guide Premium Rifle Scopes

Roy, Cabela's has two differnt Alskan Guide scopes. The plain Alaskan guide is there so-called low end vs premium line. the premium has better glass, but the alaskan guide has more options as far as power ranges and now they have a side focus.

Re: Cabela\'s Alaskan Guide Premium Rifle Scopes

Mine is not the premium but lists for $20 more than the most expensive premium?

I'm thinking that there isn't a lick of difference between the two levels of scope except for the wording and rubber here and there.....

Re: Cabela\'s Alaskan Guide Premium Rifle Scopes

I purchased a Alaskan Guide Premium (6.5-20x40mm) in August for my 204. I looked at the 30mm tube, 52mm Obj. Alaskan Guide and the Leupold VXIII (1" tube) all in the same power. The Premium was about equal to the VXIII (and 1/2 the price) and the regular A.K. was really dark in comparison to the other two.

Long story short, bought the Premium and love it. Great optic quality and very repeatable.

Re: Cabela\'s Alaskan Guide Premium Rifle Scopes

I have the 4X12X44 AG Premium on my Rem LV .223 and think it an awsome scope. I also have on my Kimber 84M varmint .22-250 one of the AG in 6.5X20X44 Never a problem with them. Both are way clearer than my 8X40 Leupold by leaps and bounds but Its mounted on the gun so it can stay there till if change it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
The AG Preimum in 6.5X20X44 with the AO is what I'm going to put on my two new rifles though. We will see how it handles the .300RUM. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
