Quality Big Eyes

For the past year or so, I've been wanting to put together a quality set of glass. I have four sets of Big Eyes and all are mediocre. They get the job done, but I've been itching for a quality set. The farther we've been stretching out these rifles, the more I see the need for quality glass.

After about a month at the CNC, and a few screw ups, I finally made the bracket to put these into. I used two Leica Televid 62 scopes. I have two sets of eyepieces, a 32x set and a 20 x 60 variable set. I have the 20 x 60's on in the pictures below.

Just wanted to share a few pictures. There's no doubt they'll perform to their high standards.

Wow! That is some high powered glass. Better rifles... Better glass... Better rifles... Better glass... Look what you've done now!

Being a bit of a glass snob I hope you'll let me take a peek through them. Uhmm, well better not. I'm still happy with my Kowa spotter for the most part. No need to rock the boat!

Awsome looking big eye mount you've made for yourself.

Re: Quality Big Eyes

Would you want to get rid of a set of your mediocre big eyes?

Gene~ You're welcome to take a peek through them anytime.

Tyler~ I would be willing to part with one of my other pairs, but I'm always supplying the glass for everyone. After looking through these a bit, I should say the heck with everyone else and let them supply their own.

Re: Quality Big Eyes

It's either these or a Bushnell Excursion for me I think.
