I've been hearing about these for a few years. Just wondering if anyone like the horus vision line of optic. I don't wat to spend $1000-1500 to see one for the first time. Are they clear? How do they rate against mark 4 or nightforce?
I have a 4-16x Raptor model that was on sale last year for $850 directly from the companies head quarter.
Love it due to easy measuring, quick second shot placement, and is nice to have when the battery powered rangefinder doesn't work.
The hawk optic is not designed for beyond 600 yards. Optic doesn't adjust so distant places are blurry. Raptor and Falcon models both easily go up to 2000 yards. Nice to have H25 reticle and good range of elevation adjustment.
I often use the turret only for long range shot but the reticle is just as effective and is perfect for quick shots. The turret is also easy to take off (one screw to loosen) for resetting to zero purpose, unlike leupold you need a special allen wrench (three screws to loosen) to reset zero due to condition changes.
As for comparison? All I can say is I been able to make shots in low light situation and the horizon hasn't stopped me yet. Nightforce is probably obviously a better scope. Not sure about leupold.
Another thing is all of Horus Vision scopes focal plane is not an issue cause it is in the front. Meaning you can shoot at any power if using reticle hold-over. Night force front focal scopes are over $2,200 and Leupold front focal scopes are over $1500.
Man this lengthy!
