US Optics Field Observation Scope

Any reports on this spotting scope? I've been considering it for backpacking for some time due to its compact shape and size and lowish weight. I would think the optical quality would be great coming from US optics and I really like the MOA reticule option that would allow a spotter to more accurately call 2nd shot corrections if needed. I just wonder how it compares to the 65mm objective Swarovski scopes optically. The Swaros are certainly bulkier and heavier, but wow optically.

Re: US Optics Field Observation Scope

considering what the Leupold and the Vortex Razor cost... that might be a viable option at just over a grand.

I too would like to hear of the performance of these scopes.

I'd forgotten it's FFP.

It features a front focal plane GAP reticle to help estimate range and 15-40x power magnification to allow you to close in on those far away objects. The body of the spotting scope is constructed of 6061 T-6 aluminum and features a type III hard anodizing. The high-quality lenses are fully multi-coated to offer the brightest sight image possible. Each U.S. Optics Field Spotting Scopes is hand built to ensure the highest quality possible.

A.G., the site is not allowing me to reply to your PM regarding this scope for some reason.

Re: US Optics Field Observation Scope

Anyone have experience with this spotting scope?

Alan Griffith (A.G.), I received your PM but the site said that I could not PM you back for some reason. I'd like to know what you think of the glass in this spotting scope compared to say, Swarovski glass. Which reticle do you have in it?
