Re: Springfield Armory scopes

Ian, if you want a good deal on the 3200 10X, contact Higginsonpowder in Ont. 613-632-9300 ($257 Cdn). Good guys, good prices.

I doubt that that scope would have 100min. as it is only a 1" tube. The rest of the 3200 family only has 50 min. Even then with the mil dots, it will give you around 86min of elevation. Been looking at them too, so would appreciate some feedback.

Good luck...

Re: Springfield Armory scopes

with out an adjustable objective will the tactical 10x model 3200 be able to focus on long range targets? sorry if this is a stupid question I don't know that much about these scopes.

Re: Springfield Armory scopes

I am guessing that the 3200 will be "focused" at infinity so should be OK over quite a range of distances. Will let you know when I get a chance to try one out.
I can't explain how that little scope is supposed to have so much adjustment, hope to find out soon. We have been having problems with the 4200 6-24 running out of adjustments, when it is on a 20 moa base it was 9" high at 100 yards.
Those turrets in the catalog picture look like the old B&L Tactical turrets, they were about as good as any as far as I am concerned.

Re: Springfield Armory scopes

Like most fixed power scopes, parallax will be set around 100 to 150yds. However, anything further will be in focus so parallax is not an issue. Closer targets may be blurry but who shoots under 150yds anyway (how about 90% of all hunters). Parallax at shorter range will also be so small that it does not affect accuracy.

With my experience with B&L products, optics should be very good. The tracking should also be excellent. Ian, let us know how it turns out.

The 6X24 4000/4200series scopes only have 26min of adjustments. I use Burris sig rings and inserts to shim up the scope so that I get to use all the adjustment. Like yourself, my scopes are "bottomed out" or shooting high at 100yds.

With a flat shooting mag., 20 to 25min should get you all the way to 1000yds with a 100yd zero.

Big adjustment only matters once you get past 1000yds.

Good luck...
