Re: Counter sniper optics?

I see a lot of posts from those who lack experience with Counter Sniper Scopes. I own 3 of the 10-40X56 35mm Tube. I also see recomendations for Vortex scopes. What Vortex model has the magnification to compete with the 10-40X Counter Sniper? Show me.

Optically these scopes are good not great. I have a 10-50X60 Sightron to compare it to.
They have an easy to understand turret lock.

I am very pleased with the Countersniper scope (Counter Sniper Aluminum 6 screw rings) on my .204 Ruger.

I had reticle movement problems with a Counter Sniper scope mounted on a 6.5-28 8.5 pound rifle. I used Valdada Steel 35mm Rings which I recommend. They are well finished and not chunky but a trim steel ring.

One member of my gun club has tried a Counter Sniper and sent it back because it did not have sufficient range of adjustment to work with his underpowered 6mm BR handloads.

The 10-32X Sightron 30mm claims greater range of adjustment than the Counter Sniper has. I bought the Burris Black Diamond 30mm Tube and it appears brighter than the 10-32X Sightron because it has a larger internal tube and less range of adjustment.

I believe the Counter Sniper 10-40X56 35mm tube scope is an excellent scope for cartridges that do not kick to 500 yards or under. Pararie Dog or Coyote rifles.

So basically your ok with paying those prices for a scope that cant take much recoil (reticle movement), doesn't have much travel, doesn't have great glass. Zoom is so overrated its not even funny. Everyone thinks "if you want to shoot long range you need alot of zoom" Thats just plane wrong. If you want to actually shoot long range (not BR shoot at 100 yds, because thats all your scope is good for" YOU NEED TRAVEL above all else. Your post makes it plainly clear you made a (or 3) bad choices when you bought your scope and are to proud to admit it, but your still going to try to convince the next guy to do the same. Reviews like the one above is why you take all internet reviews with a huge grain of salt. The guy doing the review may or may not know anything about scopes.

Exactly! And I'll be damned if I'm gonna look through blue glass at those ranges. Even my NF ATACR is difficult to use at full 25x zoom at long distances once mirage kicks in, and out here in az in August mirage kicks in at 630am. No scope is immune to mirage but when combined with crap glass it makes it even worse.

That's because most people do a tiny bit of research before they buy a scope. By doing so they quickly realize counter sniper is junk and they spend their money on worth-while optics. I don't own a counter sniper but I know they're junk. I'm not going to go waste my money just to be even more sure of it.

I would take any thing vortex offers than run one of those pieces of junk. Even the low price diamond backs wont have reticle movement from recoil. Counter sniper are junk just playing off the ghey name they have. military overrun ha that is good stuff

That's not a fair comparison because the diamond doesn't have the word "SNIPER" in it.
