New 10-40x50mm Scope.

I thought I'd try one of these out since 95% of the time I will be benchrest shooting for fun. If it works out it will save me enough to get two new barrels to switch out for hunting.

What experiences have any of you had with them? I saw an older one about a year ago that looked way inferior to this one. It had real cheepo rings and the glass was not as good and sharp like these.

Here are some pictures: http://forum.gon.com/showthread.php?t=394689

PS: I haven't shot it with the new scope yet.

Re: New 10-40x50mm Scope.

I thought they might be worth a try too=WRONG. I made the mistake of buying a used one and got a scope with the x hairs off 1/8th of a turn and a company that will not cover it!!
Otherwise it works great

MachV,

Could you explain how the x hairs was off 1/8th turn???? You can loosen the 3 turret screws and turn the turret back to "0" without moving the x hair. Is this what you mean?

Now that there is some funny chit! Naw what I mean is the reticle is not plum with the turrets. I can either plum it to the reticle and use the holdoff hashes and live with a scope that looks like a retard mounted it or plum it to the turret and use the dials where only the guy looking through the scope knows its retarded
I'm tempted to order another one from SG and return this one as defective but so far the reticle seams to be stable and not moving so I will probably do the right thing and use the scope as is just to remind me not to be that foolish again??

WOW, Now I understand what you meant. Sorry you got stuck. I never saw a scope like that before. I don't know what you paid, but here is where I got mine: Scopes, Scopes, Long Range Tactical Scope, By Osprey at Sportsman's Guide

This is the one I wanted, but to expensive. It has a "Horus" like reticule. U.S. Military 3 - 25x56 Mm Crusader Scope, Covert Matte Black Hardcoat, Scopes, Counter Sniper at Sportsman's Guide

You can return anything to them for ever.
