Re: Lightweight scope recomedations

So, if I figure this right you can now carry 1 LB more gear for your 1150.00 investment... All fun'in aside it's good to have a light rifle and I wish my Talbot Mounts were lighter .. Long days with heavy rifles aren't much fun..

Life is too short for not having the best gear You could buy...

... the scope alone is 2000 US worth... and I don´t regret any part of this project: I could shoot during night without artificial light (against the law) (pig hunting here) just from the light reflection of the clouds most times...

Yep a PV-N 3-12x50 - so 50mm glasses.

Oh yes, they are brilliant. The high prices stops me from buying more, but... new ideas are coming up...

By the way: have You seen the latest Swarovski´s ? Z6i 2,5-15x44 or 3-18x50 ??? With BallisticTurrent and HD lenses???

Just the HD lenses are making me crazy about buying some... Argghhh...
