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.

Try the SUPER SNIPER 16 power. 30mm tube rear or side focus, mill dot. I have four 16 power and two 20 power scopes and they are tough and track great! the 16 power seems a little more clear. They were a navy sniper contract scope that i understand tasco built useing parts from other scope makers. They run around 300.00 and mine have never failed me.

well i worked in the armory for naval special warfare for a while in the not to distant past and NEVER saw these scopes. all they were using were nightforce. they actually had a pile from the floor to my waist of "old" leupold mk-4 scopes that they were tossing out. just wanted to throw that in since it seems everyone wants to market that there products are used by navy seals or whatever. sorry it just hit a cord. i think i hear that all too much with all types of gear. thanks for the suggestion though i will chech it out. just dont believe everything you hear.
