New XOTIC scope arrived today
Big brown came and dropped off my new XOTIC tactical scope from SWFA. For those of you who have never heard of this scope or brand, it's brand new (see Link). They set out to develop the most rugged, brightest, optically superb tactical scope for under $800.00 Believe me, they succeeded. Right now they only offer a 4X16 – 56mm objective, but they need to come out with a smaller sized scope.
My initial observations on the new XOTIC scope. WOW!!!! Incredible optics!
It was much larger than I had anticipated. Biggest scope I've ever owned and mounted. Seems extremely well built, but boy is it big.
I have a Leupold Mark 4 10X and 16X tactical scopes. I also have one Zeiss 3X9. When comparing my two leuys side by side, they weren’t in same class when it comes to the optics. Not even close! It was like comparing a top the line Leuy to a basic tasco for optics, except this time the leuy was the tasco. The optics blew away the best leuy's glass hands down! Optics were slightly better than my Zeiss when compared side by side.
Didn’t get to play with it this evening when the sun set, but will report back on my results
Did I say the scope is big?
I mounted it on my new left-handed DPMS AR and plan to go to the range tomorrow.
I think for Texas pig and coyote hunting it will be a great scope, but boy is it big.
I hope XOTIC comes out with a much smaller scope line with a 40 to 44 mm max objective.
Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
