Counter sniper scopes....any good???

Just as the topic says, are counter sniper scopes any good? Going on a .338 edge build. Their newest model is advertised as having ED glass. And a 75 mm objective!!!! 34 mm main tube! 4-50 power magnification. Just seems too good to be true!!!

Yes, it is too good to be true. That company has zero credibility.

I looked at those scopes a few years ago. The marketing hype was unbelievable. I inspected the scopes at SHOT and they were of average Chinese quality, which is not very good. Their claims of offering overruns from military production contracts were as unbelievable as the rest of the hype. The list prices were astronomical. Even the sale prices were 50-100% too high for the quality.

Re: Counter sniper scopes....any good???

I'm glad you asked before you bought one. So many guys on here start their post with "so I just bought so and so scope. Is it any good?"
With optics, as with many things in life, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. I've never heard anyone say anything good about Counter Sniper scopes. They seem to spend a lot on marketing, but have no reputation to back it up.
These are the scopes that come highly recommended on this forum:
Any Night Force scope
Vortex Viper
Sightron SII or SIII
Bushnell Elites
Leupold VX3
Nikon Monarchs

BTW, I use a Bushnell Elite 4200.

Re: Counter sniper scopes....any good???

I have a buddy that bought one. He is happy with it. It seemed ok to me when I set the gun up. Clicks moved as they should. Seemed to be clear but dotn know about the light capibility. Tried to have a turret made for it but didnt happen! I even contacted Counter Sniper to try and get a blank turret. Talked to the manager and he promised to get me one but it never happned. This has been close to a yr. I am now having a turret label made for it. I would not buy one because they didnt follow through with there word!!!!!! Customer service is is everything!!
