You folks make some killer scopes. A couple other guys had them with Horus reticles in SOTIC when I was going through. Awesome setup. Did you folks put a bid in on the PSRs? I hope they don't stick us with another second focal plane Nightforce.
I'd buy one out of pocket if I could only convince the wife to sign off on the price tag. I picked up a 1-4 Accupoint a couple months ago though, so I'm over budget on optics for awhile- women usually don't understand the need for multiples of similar gear.
I asked someone back at the head shed a few days ago and it has to do with the length of the objective, effective focal length and length of the erector tube. Needs to be the size it is to do what it does, as I understand it. Not much of an explanation but I think they will start dropping scientific formulas on my head if I dig any deeper.
Any hope for a Shadowspear discount ... My Model 70 is asking for a new set of glasses, the Weaver it came with just doesn't allow it read at distance..... The rifle is old and it's eyesight is going.... like me... and every little bit of assistance would help.
I'm shooting a Trijicon Accupoint 1-4x on my carbine right now. I carry it on 1x/100m zero and that works pretty good out to 200 or so, then dial it up 4x/300m zero and that covers me pretty well to 500. It's got some nice features-
- You can slip the scales/zero without tools.
- It has graduated turrets for easy dialing.
- You can run the turrets covered or uncovered for easy dialing.
- It's pretty damn close to true 1x, so you can shoot it both eyes open.
- It has the same tritium/fiber optic illumination system as the ACOG.
I got it from Larue for abou 850 with the mount. Not too bad, but not cheap either.

I have heard good things from quite a few people about the Accupoint. I will have to give it a closer look.
In the past couple weeks I have been looking into the Vortex Viper PST 1-4x24 with MRad reticle. Looks promising but havent found anyone who can shed light on the intensity level of the illuminated reticle during daylight conditions.
Also, recently picked up an American Defense 30mm mount...thought I would give something other than Larue a try.
