hakko 30 mm

A guy I work with is wanting me to buy his Hakko. It is a 30mm with a broad power, I think 6.5-24x54 with ill mill dots. Is this thing worth looking at. I dont want to be ripped off.

Shawn , Can't help much but I seem to recall that Hakko made the very early Nightforces and that they had problems. This could be all wet , and I would like to know if anyone can verify this ???

Re: hakko 30 mm

I thought the same thing but am not sure. I also heard they make the Ramshot Vartac and the Nikon Tactical. I also heard that the reason both of these scopes and the Springtields cant be found right now is because Hakko closed up shop.

But if a guy believed everything on the net... Well, I would be eating dinner with Bigfoot and his pal the Lochness Monster.

Re: hakko 30 mm

I have owned 1. I will never own another hakko POS. At least 10 years ago there scopes were a joke, although they looked cool. Their customer service and repair center was also a joke. Be carefull.

In their defense, I dont know how they are today.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: hakko 30 mm

Early Hakkos can be OK. Later ones are dodgy.

I have (as opposed to USE) 3 in the "collection" right now - One is a 6-26*56-MP(with Ill. red/green Mildot) - It's dodgy. The others are a 4-16*50(Horus) and a fixed 10*42.

HAKKO did fold and you wont get any backup.

There are some "new" Hakkos which are being made from the plans - I have one (the 10*42) and it's not bad - but the company I acquired from has stopped importing as over 50% were unusable.

Unless it's REALLY cheap and it's a STOP-GAP solution - I wouldn't.

It's sad really.
