Re: Tough decision

I see in snipershide they are doing a group buy for U.S. optics. still rather expensive glass, but have heard good things about them. Might be worth checking out. they are discounting the sn-3 line of scopes. But realize I am somewhat of a newbie and have never actually used the us optics. but from the research I have done it sounds like night force is really good as well as US optics.

Re: Tough decision

With your budget think I would be tempted to look in the for sales here and snipershide for a "as new" USO Sn.3 or T.Pal, or a 4-16x50 Schmidt & Bender PMII. USO and S&B are at the very top to the food chain scope wise. For me the difference comes down to where you live - I`m in Europe so S&B is easier for me to deal with is something goes wrong, if you live in the USA then USO are a US company.

Try a search on snipershide for USO and S&B.

Re: Tough decision

Thanks for the offer magman. I live straight south of you off US-31 on the sunny shores of Holland. Everytime I go to Canada, I have to treat my wife at the Grand Traverse Resort Spa. I'm in the TC area often.

Just got off the phone with Lerch,(nice guy) looks like I'll go the NF route.
