How much do you think I could get an SN-3 3.8-22X MKIV for?

Re: US Optics

2895 USD for the 3.8-22 58 mm and 320 USD more for the 40 mm main tube ( a must to get more MOA in elevation )

for pure ultra long range use I prefer my SN9 with 250 moa

Good Shooting

Re: US Optics

Hi Dantec.

How is the cheekweld with the 58mm objective on the sn9?

It seems like it would be very high?

Happy Hunting! [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: US Optics

dear John

I agree that the cheekweld with 58 mm is hight but I use the scope to shoot from a bench with heavy rifle .

The internal construction of the SN9 have no erector system so a 44 mm can work very well for long range shooting , just with 58 mm bell and without recetor system you have plenty of light.

For more current shooting I prefer a SN6 22x
A N with just the 35 mm tube option you have plenty of moa for elevation and stay under 2000$ .
or a SN3 3.8x22 58 MK I with 35 mm tube to be just over 2000$.

For both of theses scopes ( excpet for low light hunting and I am not sure to be able to shoot in low light at 2000 yards ) 44 mm is enought and you save money .

over 22x I feel that you get lot of mirage and it's became difficult to find the target

1000 yards / 22 = 45 yards or 90 yards at 2000 yards that enought to shoot accurate .

Enjoy US OPTIC products ( forget the price just check quality )

Good shooting

Re: US Optics

Is $3000 reasonable to pay for a scope??

What is the justification behind $3000?

Are the optics that much better? I realize you can hammer nails with US optics scopes but how oftern to you drop a rifle off a cliff or do contract labor on your house with your scope?

For $3000 the scope better be my date on Sat. night and make breakfast in the morning too?

With the service and warranties of Leupold and Nightforce why spend another $2000??????

Re: US Optics

Depending on who you are directing this to, I only want the best. I will eventually put the SN-3 3.8-22X on my .30-378 and an SN-9 5.6-30X on my .408.

Re: US Optics

Hey to each his own... but wow is that expensive.
I guess I have trouble getting past the fact I could have another rifle made and still buy a nightforce for the price of a USO scope.... I just don't see where they get there pricing. I heard that the service isn't so good as well.
In all fainess I havnt ever used one or looked thru one.. but WOW $3000 for a scope!
