Broke on 15th shot

by btyhrusscg, from United States, GA Written on October 14, 2014
This Weaver 3x-9x 40mm scope came with a "combo" package on a Savage Axis .308 in Oct. 2014.

My best friend and I took it out shooting. The scope has a narrow field of view, even at 3x o 4x, and it was dim. We were shooting on a partly cloudy day in the woods, from 11 am to 3 pm, and this scope was quite a bit dimmer than any other scope we brought, including a cheap $50 Bushnell fixed 4X.

Despite supposedly being boresighted, this Weaver Kaspa was two feet off the target at 100 yards. We got it zeroed pretty quickly, though. The scope has a very fine crosshair, good for target work, but not my preference for hunting in woods. The scope's reticle also has several smaller hold-over aiming points, which we did not get to test out, but they seem like a good and useful feature.

After we pretty much had it zeroed at 200 yards, and were "in the black," suddenly on the 14th shot (ever, in this gun's lifetime) this rifle missed the entire target and backing board completely. On the 15th shot the scope's reticle lens inside it just fell over. The recoil of the .308 rifle (150 gr. soft-point factory loads, nothing unusually hot) broke the scope !!!

Very disappointing.

BOTTOM LINE:
BAD: 1-- My scope could not handle the recoil of a .308 bolt rifle and broke apart internally on the 15th shot.
2-- The scope was dim.
NEUTRAL:
3-- the reticle was a very fine crosshair with a few hold-over cross-lines below the main aiming point.
GOOD:
4-- long eye relief, about 4" in my e...

Good value optic

by Wayne, from New Zealand Written on August 15, 2014
Came with my Savage 16 in 308 as a combo, so not much expectation on the scope. Just wanted to give it a shot before replace it. After 6 months of use and abuse, I've changed my mind. Will keep this scope on the rifle. I've dragged it through bush, bumped on the truck, used in the rain. It worked very well--clear and sharp picture, hold zero fine. What's more you can ask for the prize?...

Elevation Froze

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on February 26, 2014
Mounted easily on CZ 455. Second week out, getting sight settings for 178 and 207 yards. Adjusted well for 178. Would not go all the way to 207 (even though the turret was turning. Then, wouldn't come back down at all. It was just stuck at 20" low at 207. Swapped it out for a Bushnell. Have three other guns with Bushnells and never had any troubles.
Pros: Clear, great reticle, easy adjustments
Cons: Stopped working...
Would recommend: No
