Re: Huskemaw Blue Diamond??

I assume you are all talking about the original and not the Blue Diamond that was originally asked about, correct? So it is worth $100 less than retail for "the piece of junk?"

It had never been mounted, still in the original packaging... If you think differently about them and your in need of another scope, you would be getting a deal! Right?!

i know one of the things they changed is the blue diamond has epoxy coated lenses i think there was a few other small things too.i know the canadian dealer has sold 80-90 of the original husky & have only had 1 issue with 1 scope i think thats not a bad% of probs

Aaron Davidson I believe no longer has any affiliation with Huskemaw Scopes and has teamed up with Night Force... That should be plenty of a reason to stay away from them. I sent mine back to Huskemaw and they sent me a new scope. I called them to see if they did any testing on the scope (because I wanted to see what had failed on it) and they said it was easier to just exchange it than to do any further testing on it... I would stay clear of Huskemaw and spend an extra $700 and get the best glass on the market. I will only buy Night Force here on out! I asked them for a refund and they said no way?! I guess I will try to sell it on ebay or craigslist...
So you put on the Nightforce and it grouped in the 2s and3s at 100yards. So you had two good scopes on the gun and neither shot well. I would say it is a gun or a shooter problem and not the scope.

Re: Huskemaw Blue Diamond??

I have a husky and love it. The reason why I picked it over all the rest is the redical. I know the scope dope on my scope so no need for the custom turret. I really like the widage marks it offers. All the other scopes redicals are to busy for me. It tracks good from a 100yrds to a 1000yrds at a 100yrds I'm getting 1/4" five shot groups. What more can you ask for on a scope that's super clear. The way I look at it is the husky, mark 4, and new pst are all in the same ball park. And with that said I choose the husky. Now tryin to compare nf to husky is a hands down no compareissont so I don't know why people even try. The blue diamond should be better then a already great scope.
