ATN 12 x 36 x 80 Scope for 50 BMG

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, KY Written on October 5, 2010
I have two of these. The first came with the older style base mount and rings. I bought a second to use with another fifty. The second one had a redesigned base mount with eccentric plastic inserts in the scope rings for rough centering. The plastic does not hold the heavy scope during fifty recoil. I sent two of them with scopes to the factory for repair. Tried them again, no change. I modified them myself to get one to work, the second one still moves the scope about .50 " each round.
I spent $900 for the second scope and new base, and about $300 for the new "better" base for my first scope.
I am now wondering what to do with them.
Pros: Wonderful optics
Cons: Non-centering reticle, base does not work....
Would recommend: No

12-36x80 ATN rifle scope for 50 BMG

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 6, 2010
Very ruggedly built - has survived 100's of rounds with perfect repeatability. Bright,sharp optics, good edge sharpness. First plane etched reticle. Very high MOA adjustment range. Didn't use the ATN adjustable base/ring combo due to rough machining, ~0.020" vertical offset found between fore/aft ring surfaces. Used Barrett adj. rings instead.
Pros: Rugged, excellent optical performance, high MOA range
Cons: rough machining on included base ...
Would recommend: Yes

ATN 12-36x80

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on September 14, 2009
I've run hundreds of .50 BMG rounds through my rifle using this scope and am very satisfied; there have been no problems. Very impressed by brightness/sharpness at all powers. Holds zero & image is sharp to the edges. Barrett adj. rings were used because the ATN-supplied bdc adj. mount was machined poorly (0.010" vertical offset between rings). Product ratings are based on the scope and do not include the mount.
Pros: sharp, bright optics; rugged
Cons: the supplied mount was machined improperly...
Would recommend: Yes

Built Wrong

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on September 19, 2008
I bought one of these from another company because it seemed like an incredible deal. I took it to a gunsmith to have it procfessionally mounted. Turns out 1) the crosshairs were crooked in the scope, 2) The scope is held on with 4 small metric screws not suitable for 50 cal recoil, 3) the windage was off too much to BORESIGHT. It couldn't be made to hit paper at 100 yds. SO - I returned it and bought a much more expensive scope. Just remember, if it seems like a deal that is too good to be true, it probably is.
Pros: Says it has good features
Cons: Mine was defective out of the box....
Would recommend: No
