Re: Clearest Glass---POLL---

the only reason i chimed in was because i recently had the privilege of looking through most of the scopes listed side by side at the same time. the scope that was the "best of show" was the Premier Heritage. i don't consider myself an optics guru by a long shot, but myself and about 10 other people,encluding a female that had never looked through a scope in her life, all agreed the Heritage was the best.

    3 USO same as #2
    4 Zeiss Have some great models and good glass but some not so good so do your homework
    5 Sightron some of their lower models have the worst glass I have ever seen, the SIII is supposed to be world class but it is hard to be completely un-bias when some of their stuff is so bad.
    6 Nightforce very good but not great and not as over priced as S&B and USO.

    Check out the new MARCH scopes, they have taken optic's to a new level as far as performance and price.
    UB

    Do you know of any stores online that carry them? Or even MARCH's website??? I can't find anything except I seen a video of like a 60x50mm. These scopes sound ridiculous (in a good way). I'm just curious as to how much they run, and what all models the company has made.

    Right now March does not make a great variety of scopes, they started out a couple years ago with only BR model's . they make a 40,50 and 60X52 BR model's but their new variable should be amazing a 10x60x52.
    The exclusive distributer is Kelbly's at Kelbly.com

    with a 10x60x52 you dont really need many model's

    I own everything in the poll except Sightron and several models of each as well and I have performed extensive evaluations. For this question it is close-------USO and S&B are close during the day with S&B getting a VERY slight nod. During low light and night shooting the USO gets the nod.


    Overall----I like USO.

    March Scopes now include a 1X10 and a 2.5X25 Tactical style scopes, they were unveiled at the shot show. I do no think that the production models have shown up at Kelby's yet. At least they had not when I asked about them.

    S&B and Us Optics and Nightforce are the gold standards for reliability and optics IMHO and expeirence

    A few of the test that US Optics put their scope tubes through

    Driving nails





    Supporting an F-150






    And the toughest torture test imagingable
