Well i got a new scope, i see alot of questions out there about the scope so i plan on checkin it out and i will get on here and give it a eval after i get some trigger time behind it. i have it mounted on my rem. 700 build in the 7mm rem mag. with a 20moa egw base and burris extreme tactical rings medium... the mediums set the scope a bit high so i will be changing to low rings here shortly. The scope is a konus m30 4.5-16x40mm -30mm tube -side focus -ocular focus -lighted reticle -comes with caps and sun shade -1/8th moa adjustment -locking turrets -internal level bubble So far my just from looking at it and messing with it i have a few initial impressions. 1. its a rather heavy scope which isnt necessarily a bad thing. 2. the sunshade is rather long so it makes the scope huge. something i would probably leave off and carry with me and use as its needed rather than leave it on. 3. it has good hard clicks in the turrets. 4. they are a little difficult to get to center up on the hash marks. it has 3 screws to tighten and they have to be tightened in a certain order and evenly to get the hash marks to center up instead of slightly off to one side or the other. 5. Lighted reticle seems to be a pointless add-on. but i think that of any scope, so its a matter of preference. 6. glass is extremely clear 7. glass etched reticle is nice and sharp 8. scope caps are crappy but that can be fixed easy if anyone want covers. 9. variable power is clear all the way to 16x 10. good eye relief 11. even though the scope have a level bubble inside it thats supposed to aide the shooter, i dont really like it. i could do without it. for one i dont use it, two i dont like the way it looks through the view with a bubble in there, and three i dont think its exactly level with the scope and reticle so if you did use it i really wouldnt be accurate. i'll be testing it with a plumb to see how accurate it is. Over all the scope seems to be well built. i will know more about its performance once i get some trigger time behind it. im going to test the tracking and the mil measurements to see if and how accurate they are. Manufacturer claims that the mils are calibrated at 12x, i will also be testing that to see if thats accurate. i have heard that this scope is on the first focal plain but i have also heard that its a second focal plain scope. so i'll also be checking to varify which is which. i'll see about adding some picture so yal can see what it looks like on the rifle.
