Super Sniper

I know from reading most of you love the Leupolds and Niteforce but I ran into an interesting dilema a week before deer season. The scope I had been using decided to go junk. I had a short amount of time and cash so I ordered a 20X super sniper. After one season with it, I can say it is a super deal for what you pay for it. We shot 4 whitetails with it at 530,680,733,and 742 yards in varying conditions. (ie, 12 to 40 degree temps, varying wind, snow, etc) The cliks are perfectly repeatable, the image is crisp. The only thing I would change would be the cross wire thickness. It's a little heavy for varmints but worked well on deer. Maybe someday I'll spend the money but right now I'm loving it.

Re: Super Sniper

Bigbrother,

I have one of these SS20x on my McMillan MCRT tactical rifle. This scope "aint" junk like you say,I agree. They have the Navy Seal contract. With 120 MOA of elevation and clear and bright as any USA built scope, it makes for a great deal. To Nato specs. Crosshairs, aren't as heavy as some but still heavier then I think they should be. The reticle is engraved in the glass and the scope is very heavy built.

For the money, it is amazing. Check out the reviews at SniperCountry.com, these folks don't mess around, they ring them out, and still gave it a great rating.

Regards, Vern

Re: Super Sniper

Anybody looking for one of these, I have an extra in 16x. Rear parallax adjustment, target knobs, mildot etched glass reticle, as made several years ago. Been sitting in a cabinet, is "as new" but don't have the original crummy box they came in. Lens covers (factory type w/amber lenses) included.

$279 shipped in USA. If you want a set of Leupold brand Rem 700 2-pc bases and rings (Redfield type), the price will be $309 shipped. These scopes have so much internal elevation, you don't need a tapered base unless you'll be shooting some ways past 1,000y!

3 day inspection no problemo. Don't want anybody to be unhappy w/something they bought from me.

Selling because I have WAY too much stuff, and not enough rifles to put them on. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Super Sniper

I would have been scared to ask about this scope for fear of being chastized by all of you better/expensive scope owners. . .but since the question was asked. . .

In the 10x, there is the side focus or rear focus choice. Is it worth the extra hundred for rear focus? If so, why?

Also, how would Springfield Armory rate if one were looking for a decent fixed power tactical scope in the $300 range?

Re: Super Sniper

Vern, gosh, I'm blushing, but thanks for your kind words. The scope I mentioned is sold pending funds. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Last poster, I've not owned/used the side focus version, but I've seen several comments indicating that the more expensive version is not worth the extra cost, nor is it the equal of the rear parallax adjustment version. I'd suggest you save the money and get the latter. Having the parallax there is very handy, just as convenient in my experience as the third knob. Both of which are WAY superior to reaching out and twisting the objective lens setup per most A/O designs.
