Falcon Menace

Does anyone know where I can find one of these for a good price in 4-14 ffp.? I've been thinking about trying one out. Can anyone speak from experience about this scope and it's quality?

Re: Falcon Menace

the falcon menace 4X 14 that I use the adjustments are spot on glass pretty good not the best but good enough the best thing is ffp you can use the retical or dial the scope. it handles recoil of the 7mm stw but the most important thing you dial the scope it will go there and come back to zero.I have close to 250 rounds down the rifle and have not had to rezero. www.sightwonders.com

Re: Falcon Menace

I bought one a year ago and when I turned the power knob a few times to check it out-- a lens came loose and I couldn't see the reticle.
It lasted about ten minutes and I didn'dt even get to use it on my rifle.

Re: Falcon Menace

That sucks Rock, but even high dollar items tend to break. After sending back (several times )what is supposed to be higher end IOR and Leupold scopes it is apparant to me that you are gonna get a turd from time to time. For me it seems to be most of the time and you just gotta sift through the crap to find a good one. Sad, I know!

Re: Falcon Menace

I read all of the good reviews and couldn t wait to get one.
A guy at my range had one for years and had no problems.
I guess I had bad luck but now I'm a bit apprehensive to get
another and take it in the field.
I liked the feel and features of it though.
