    They look like great scopes and I know alot of guys are going to be buying them. But I just don't care for their zero stop. It lets you dial down past it so it's not much of a stop to me. Other than that they look great. Wish they'd update that stop

    For what they are charging for these, if they meet all expectations, I can love with the ZS issue :) These should light a serious fire under some bigger market scope makers butts to to start listening to the shooters wants!

    I guess you can actually buy them now and be sent when they start coming out

    This is correct. There are a few dealers doing pre-buys for them, including a few sponsors on this site.


    Best Regards,

    I may be wrong, hopefully Scott will correct me otherwise, but I think that the Zero stop on this will stop it at dead zero and not go beyond it if that is desired.

    i've had a 2-10 on order for a while now. putting it on my edge, light weight carry rig. we'll find out if they can take recoil. i'm getting one based on what i heard a couple guys that saw them at the shot show said about them.
