I think it has progressed into a fine product. It is easy to switch back and forth from 1x to 4x...if I had the money I'd buy one for a woods gun or black rifle in a heartbeat. I can't seem anyone to give me one yet...I'll do product testing and give plenty of long term test feedback. ;)

Yet...

I just spoke with my UNLCE SAM and he told me if you come sign up with him he will give you one of his to use for 4 whole years no questions asked.

    That would be a bad deal for UNCLE SAM...I'm 60lbs heavier than when I was in full time. I ended my time as a reservist about 4 years ago (at the request of my new wife when she was pregnant).

    ...not sure having a 42 year old fat guy with no operational experience (flew a desk for the Air Force) is much benefit to our heroes over in the STAN. Trying to make new and better stuff for them to stay safe with and take it to the enemy more effectively and reliably...

    Thanks for the offer,
    honored...

    FYI We now offering Cerakote Finishing on the Elcan Specter DR 1-4x and the Elcan SpecterDR 1.5-6x.

    We've partnered with Phantom Finishing who will perform this service for our customers. We've already had several customers take advantage of this feature since we've added it. So far, FDE seems to be the most popular choice for the SpecterDR...

    Thanks,

    Mike @ CST

    (More comments on this video here: Elcan SpecterDR - Return to Zero Test - Videos: In-Depth Optic Reviews - Videos - CS TACTICAL )

    YouTube - Elcan SpecterDR - Return to Zero Test

    We have heard people claim that the ARMS mounts on the SpecterDR are inconsistent at returning to zero when removing and re-mounting the scope. We decided to take it out to the range to test this theory.

    Thanks,

    Mike @ CST
