    Scope is Sold Pending Funds to shortshooter, thanks for looking.

    I have a USO up for sale over on SH (where I originally purchased it):
    WTS - US Optics SN3 3.8-22 58mm - Sniper's Hide Forums

    Would make one hell of a long-range optic for those of you not concerned about weight (weighs 3.18 lbs with the rings, minus the sunshade). I unfortunately have to make it under the 16# Idaho weight limit (my spreadsheet for my upcoming custom build says I'm in trouble).

    Wanted to give you guys a crack at it!

    $1950 [SOLD PENDING FUNDS] w/ free shipping CONUS, will consider full or partial trades on case-by-case basis for a lighter (as in ounces) USO, NF NXS, or Swaro Laser Guide. Might consider other quality long-range optics as long as they are lighter than the USO and have ranging reticle & matching knobs (.1 MIL or 1/4 MOA are fine).

    Will accept Postal MO, or discrete paypal +4%.

    You can reply/PM/mail me here if interested.

    Details:

    Spec Sheet:
    Power: 3.8-22
    Tube: 35mm
    Custom Objective: 58mm Ergo with CUSTOM Parallax. It goes from around 20 yards to Infinity. It also has a faster thread on the objective so you get from 100 to Infinity with a lot less movement than the standard ergo objective from USO.
    Reticle: PCMOA Non-Illuminated
    Elevation Knob : US#3 (1/4 MOA per click, 105 clicks or 26.25 MOAs per revolution)
    Windage Knob: US#1 (1/4 MOA per click, 48 clicks or 12 MOAs per revolution) Windage Knob cover included
    Rings: USO 35mm High
    4" Sunshade with Honeycomb
    Covers: Front screw on aluminum type. Rear Butler creek flip up

    Notes in response to questions:
    Reticle is FFP (markings for ranging/holdoff accurate at any zoom level)
    Turret clicks and reticle are actually IPHY (inch-per-hundred-yards), not true MOA. I prefer this, as you don't have to worry about that pesky .047" -- So a 10" target measuring one "MOA" on the reticle is at exactly 1000 yards.

    More info on the reticle from USO:
    http://usoptics.com/upgradesDetail.php?recordID=RET-051


    Sorry for the crappy pictures – don't feel like I'm doing the scope justice. The last pic is on the previous owner's rifle (for size reference).

    Note: What looks like white-ish marks behind the objective assembly on the tube is flash reflection off of the tape on the box underneath it.

    Scope is still available. I am going to be 'off the grid' most of the day tomorrow, so I will get back to anybody I miss when I return in the evening (unless I happen to catch you first thing in the morning).

    Thanks guys.

    tackb -

    I'm not against it in principal -- though I have to admit to not knowing a thing about the state of international shipping/customs/duties/etc. As long as it's 'by the book' and we can do it without the scope getting nabbed by customs and whatnot...

    I'd just ask that you pick up the additional costs of the international shipping charges beyond what 'typical' US-shipping would be -- and if we did a trade if there were duties or whatnot for the scope coming back the other way. I basically just don't want to lose a bunch of cash (or a scope) due to the international aspect of it.

    If the NF has .1 mil turrets to match the reticle, your mildot NSX would be a fine trade as part of a deal.

    PM me if you like and we can see if we can hammer something out.

    Looks like its gone, if the deal falls through I'm still up for it but my nxs is 1/4 clicks ?

    I would do it 'by the book' as I brought a us optics off a guy called hunter hamilton on ebay and once I'd bank transfered the money I never heard from him again he won't even reply to my emails even though he is still on ebay as bmwwerke oh and ebay actually have no teeth when you really get down to it ! But one day I'll find him and there will be a rekoning !

    good luck with your deal,Russ

    ps. if anyone knows a hunter hamilton in the kentucky area let me know?
