US Optics

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

    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

    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]

    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??????

    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!
