Konus M-30 Tactical Rifle Scope 30mm Tube 8.5-32x 52mm 1/10 MIL

I haven't found a better quality scope with as many features for $350...The glass is nice and clear, the lens coating is nice, and the turrets are pretty precise.

Thats not a bad piece of kit, I like the 1/8 moa clicks, if they hold up they could ruffle a few feathers,

I have been fairly impressed with it, for the price. I mean, it sure ain't no NF or Zeiss....But I wouldn't hesitate to put it up against other scopes in the $0 to $750 category.

Yep....It's hard seeing all the guys out there with their NF's and S&B's and you have a $350 scope on a nice rifle....But you get over it once you start slinging lead downrange, and stacking them in nice cloverleafs.

Yes Zeiss is Ultra cool, and these guys will move up that ladder as they get past the basics as their skills grow along with the sheer desire to want to get better and better and keep going with this hobby/Skill

congrats on the Optics, (A thing of Beauty)

I have a Tasco World Class I've had for 15 years that cost $100 when new, and it's still alive and kicking...

It is possible for cheap things to last longer than more expensive things. Although it is rare. Usually, in the shooting world, expensive items will outlast the cheap ones...

My old spotting scope is a Tasco World Class and only now am I going to buy another one just because some of them Have ranging Reticles in them, But saying that the rotary controls on it are still firm and smooth as silk, I can read .22 holes at 150/200 yds at a pinch with the thing, and I just bought a new tripod like the Military ones for about $40.00 and its just about perfect Oh and I bought it in 1997,

PS, were you that young man that was waiting to be served in the shop when they were taking my money,LOL
