After thinking about my glasses, which are some kind of plastic, and my barrel which is carbon wrapped I wonder why we can't have a very good scope weighing six or eight ounces. When I got these new glasses I purchased the newest and greatest surface coating that is supposedly harder than glass. The carbon wrap on my rifle barrel is noticeably lighter than steel and supposedly tougher. How 'bout a scope of VX-6 or z6 quality at a third the weight? Anyone in the know know what one would cost if they were mass produced?
