    Pentax 4x-12x 40mm Gameseeker Riflescope Item# 89712

    I have been speaking with the manufacturers and suggested that they share some product information that I can post here on the forum. I am trying to get this to the point that I can get a new product covered each week, just as general information as to what's out there and to keep interested people updated.

    If there is a product that you'd like to see more about please PM me and I will get on it.

    The Pentax Gameseeker rifle scopes offers all of the features you might expect in a high end scope, but at a very affordable price. Features include solid one piece tube construction, waterproof, fog proof nitrogen filled, and fully multi-coated optics, scope caps and a lens cloth to help protect your investment. You get all of this and Pentax quality for under $150.00. The Gameseeker is one of the best values in rifle scopes on the market. Backed by the Pentax Worry Free Warranty your next adventure should include the Pentax Gameseeker. Whether you are an experienced Pro or just beginning the best Bang for the Buck is Pentax.

    I like the looks of this scope and it's on sale from Gary Olen now for a good price.

    BUT how do you compensate for parallax at 12x when there's no AO or side focus knob???

    I contacted a Pentax tech with your question and here is their reply:
    "Without the parallax adjustment there is no way to do it.

    Adjustment is 100 yds. If you set the power past 10X there could be as much as 2” of parallax at that point. The shooter just needs to remember that fact and all should be good. If we had parallax adjustments added to the scope it would almost double the cost!!"

    They are probably right about, but it would be great if their scope shot to point of aim without and add'l 2" of Kentucky windage( or is it KY elevation?). Still a good looking scope and reticle for the money though. Thanks.

    At only $134.99 the Pentax Gameseeker Essential Kit with the 4-12x40mm Gameseeker Riflescope and a Pentax 10x42 Gameseeker Roof Prism Binocular you really can't go wrong.
