Re: huskemaw or Grey Bull Precision

Dont think you will have a problem. Something must have been wacky with that MK4. They use those scopes on 50's quite a bit. Or maybe ur buddy just had really bad luck.

Re: huskemaw or Grey Bull Precision

May I add my 2 cents here? I have experience with both the Huskemaw and the Greybull Precision scopes. They are both good scopes. From my experience with both, I would buy either scope again in the future.

The Huskemaw turrets track perfectly and return to zero every time as does the Greybull Precision scope.

If there is a negative to each they are; the Huskemaw is made in Japan, at least mine is marked so. I don't mind spending a little more if it were made in the USA. I also find the ranging subtensions more difficult to use BUT this could just be me. Others may have no problem with it.

As for the Greybull scope, Mine does not have a zero stop on the elevation turret that some folks were mentioning earlier. I made my own by putting an O-ring below the turret to fill the gap. it's crude but it seems to work. I should check to see if this space is collecting dirt before it becomes a bigger problem and I should contact Greybull to see if I'm missing something.
