Re: Tasco Super Sniper 10x42 & 10x42M (side focus)

Oops, by "cranked up" I meant the magnification. Sorry, I'm fairly new to the terminology and forgot that cranked up applied to elevation. My concern is with field of view and ease of finding the deer. Many people say its difficult to use a 10x at short range and I wonder how handicapped I would be by using a strictly 10x scope. I think however, that it really comes down to my interest revolving more around shooting than hunting. I want a fun rig to shoot and if it'll take deer too, that's great!!

Re: Tasco Super Sniper 10x42 & 10x42M (side focus)

I was seriously considering one of these right up until I looked through one at my local range.

I've been shooting with Leupolds for ten years now- 6.5-20x40, 4.5-14x40, 3.5-10x40 and 8.5-25x50.

I finally put together a rifle and load accurate enough to do the shoot around test(0, up 4, right 4, down 4, etc.) and my 8.5-25x50 passed with flying colors.

At the range just last weekend a guy had a SS on his AR-15. I asked to look through it as I was considering trying one. It just didn't have the clarity I've become used to with leupolds.

I've checked multiple boards and everyone who has one likes it. It may be a great $300 scope, and if that's what you're limited to, by all means, buy one. If you can afford the Leuopld though, spend the extra money.

Funny you should say that. I've had the Leupold 6.5-20x50 and 8.5-25x50 LR/T scopes, and had about the same impression of them as you do of the SS. Most people who have looked thru mine think that they were surprisingly clear.

You're somewhat right... for $300 I don't expect it to be perfect, or 'better' than a $700-1000 scope. But considering what I can get for $300, I'd expect a hell of a lot more for $700-1000 than I think we are currently getting.

To each their own.

Take a look at the new offering from Xtreme Optical on the SFWA website.

Seen it. Guess I should clarify that to where it would have to be reasonably guaranteed to be from the same company made to the same standards. Kind of doubt that is (it's a 4-16, anyway).

Thanks,

Monte

Monte,

I did the alpha testing 4 years ago and the beta testing last year.

The gaurantee as I understand it is 30 days money back, 2 year replacement, and after that lifetime we fix it if you break it. Better warranty than the SS. glass is so good that during Beta test a guy with a very expensive Euro scope offered to trade plus cash for the test unit I was trying unsucessfully to break.

Intriguing. I may have to look into it a bit more. Any chance of them coming out w/ a 6-24 or 8-32x w/ a decent amount of elevation (~60+ MOA)?

Thanks,

Monte
