Re: Good Riflescopes for under $450
Agree with No Quarter on checking out the Nitrex TR2s at Natchez.....just type in Nitrex TR2 in their search box....they'll come up.
Nitrex TR2 is same as Weaver Super Slam scope and the TR1 is a Grand Slam. Nitrex and Weaver both owned by ATK.
Got a TR2 3-15X42 SF with target turrets a few weeks ago from Natchez. Total price after shipping and taking advantage of Nitrex $100 Rebate was $218. Heck of a price for a scope that Retailed for $575. Other reticles in this model are about $30 higher.
Higher power Nitrex TR2 ($100 rebate) and TR1 ($50 rebate) scopes available. These Nitrex at Natchez are discontinued models with discounted prices.
At private range I'm a member, I've had some serious experienced shooters/hunters who pretty much only buy Leopold, Burris, sightron, Zeiss and ect. view through my TR2 for their opinion on its glass and scope's features. none had a negative comment about scope, thought glass was very good.....comparable to any of their scopes. One guy summed up what rest of guys said about scope with words. "If this scope holds up, has no internal problems, then it is a heck of a scope for a heck of a price." Warranty on Nitrex is one year over the counter exchange.....life time warranty to buyer. If a problem with scope develops, it is sent to same place you'd send a Weaver.
However, tube diameter on these scopes are 1 inch. Think only their Tactical scopes have a 30mm tube and none of these are discontinued.
