Need info on S&B PH Scope
I bought a S&B Precision Hunter 3-12x50 riflescope about a year ago for a 6.5x55 SS/Lam Sako 75 (Buy once, cry once. Heh!). Just got it mounted recently as it took most of that year to get my rifle license sorted out (I live in Ireland). I have noticed that this line of scopes is now listed as special order only on the S&B website. So naturally, I would like to find out as much as I can about it.
Is it an old line to have been discontinued?
How does it compare in terms of coatings/clarity/etc with their other riflescope lines?
Does anybody on here have one, and if so, what are their impressions of it?
And finally, and this is for Pete Lincoln if he gets a chance to answer, I saw in another of your posts that you were looking into getting a machine to engrave custom elevation dials for these and the PMII line of scopes. How much would one of these cost, and what info would you need for it? Note that it is not urgent, I won't want it before the end of the deer season here, so I'm just inquiring. I would of course appreciate if you could answer my other questions also as you seem to be the guy in the know here as regards S&B.
Thanks in advance.
