3-12x50
3-12x56
4-16x50

30mm Maintube
Light transmission: 97-98%
Side Parallax on Some models 2.5-10x, 3-12x, 4-16x
Target Turrets on 3-12x, 4-16x

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds great but I'd have to look through them before I passed any judgement!!!

Re: Need some opinion!!

Sounds good so far.
How about quick focus on rear eye ring instead of the whole ocular bell (like the Buckmaster).
Screw in sunshade option.
Zoom ring with tactile bump.(Bump at 3 o'clock = low power, bump at 9 o'clock= high power.)
Mildot reticle with very fine vert and horiz lines and a few other choices.
Water proof and nitrogen purged of course.
First plane (I believe) reticle for mildot scopes.(makes it nice for using mildot leads on running coyotes as well as long range holdovers and range estimation.)

Re: Need some opinion!!

Did I misunderstand what you wanted? Were you looking for suggestions or were you looking for us to comment on the features you already listed as being favorable or not?

Sorry if I misunderstood.

4ked Horn,

You did help! So would you buy one? LOL [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. Actually the stuff you said is also a feature. Fast focus eyepiece, Waterproof and nitrogen filled, sunshade adaptable, Mil dot reticle will be in the 1st plane and the Duplex will be in the 2nd.

Well it seems that you and I are on the same wave length.

How are they looking on price? And yes I would buy one if I had a gun to hang it on. I think you know the difference between a good scope and a crappy one. I trust that you wouldn't care to produce a crappy one unless the price was applied accordingly.

Re: Need some opinion!!

It may be because i have ever had the extra money to move up in the optic range but i am seeing no 3-9 by 40s. If memory suits me right those 50s are awfully big and look combersom to me. I may be way off to though.
