Yup, I had one, nuf said!

The tube seemed to be quite thin and fragile compared to other high(er) dollar scopes I've owner.

Re: Springfield Armory Riflescope???

Have HAD 2 of them, 1 I bought, the other a replacment which took over 9 months to get and lots of hounding, and the 2nd one failed as well. Key word being HAD!! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Try the night force, More money but you will never be sorry.

Oh, by the way, I have dropped this scope (night force) and hit it many times in many ways, it has slid down rock slides and chutes on mountain sheep hunts, I even backed over it and my rifle with my truck, (on accident) and I have NEVER had to resight it in. The tracking is also perfect, and much smoother and refined.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: Springfield Armory Riflescope???

I have the 6-20x56 government model on my 300 ultra and love the scope. I find it very useful to have the crosshairs in the first focal plane. This means that you can use the mildots on any magnification. I don't know the 4-14 may be different but mine is very rugged. I only like the mildots and I don't care for their other designs. I have also found that it tracks very well and repeats as well. I actually fell straight on mine walking across a small bit of ice and just happened to bail. The scope went through the ice. I was in disbelief that it was still in one piece. I tried it out later and found that the scope doesn't miss a beat. Gee I must have got the good one!!!

I had the 6x42 and 10x56 compared both to my Leupolds and decided even the VXIIs have better optics. Sold both Springfields on ebay. I would rate the Springfield equivalent to the Bushnell Elite3200 series but the 3200 have better prices. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Springfield Armory Riflescope???

Wow,some serious bashing on springfield.I happen to be one of the lucky ones.I have a 10x56 illuminated mil dot that I have nothing but praise for.It has proved rugged and holds its zero very well.This isnt the first negative comments I've seen on these scopes.I just dont understand it ,my scope is a quality piece of glass,and there the only ones i've seen with an internal bubble level.Just my .02.............CC
