Good Value, Cheap illumination elements

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CO Written on November 3, 2013
This scope is mounted on a custom machined AR-10 16" barrel we use for pig extermination & hopefully big game. It was intended to be augmented with a Phosphorus NV as funds allow. For the time being, an inexpensive ATN (knockoff) gen 3 NV is being use with efficiency out to 150 yards.

In daylight, the scope is great & I would hunt big game confidently out to 350 yards with this! I can't claim to be the best of shoots but, there are many areas I could not reach with the old 30/30, beyond 200 yards, even with a good Leopold 3-9x40.

The housing is thicker, stronger, & more well made than I expected. Full aluminum, no plastics. The Zero-stop is easy to use & assuring. The distinctive clicks through the adjustments are easy to feel, even with gloves on, as I can't hear them with ear protection.

The hollow Mil-Dot Reticle is great for quick acquisition. The parallax adjustment has more deviation that I expected & works fine in daylight but, its still not enough for my eyes to focus fully at 15x when I use an illumination above 2 power regardless of it being red or green.

However, most of the time I never need to go above 2 on the illumination power. That is where the clarity of the reticle begins to diminish & halo distortion causes shot placement to be compromised.

This is the one thing I'd have to say I was hoping would be different, the Illuminated reticle's halo.

I'm not sure what I could expect to have for $700~ given everything else seems exc...

High level scope for mid level price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on July 8, 2013
This scope compares very well with high end scopes that cost much more. I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews before purchasing, and was not disapointed. If you use a mil dot reticle for ranging, the FFP is a huge benefit and is tough to find in this price range.
Only negative was availability of a sun shade, but the Weaver Super Slam fits it perfect, and Krylon flat black paint matched color nicely.
Overall: I would highly recommend this scope!
Pros: Quality
Cons: Accesories...

Everything works as expected. Some caps and a shade would be nice but knew that it did not come with them. Thumbs up!...

Great Tactical Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MA Written on June 24, 2012
As a sniper on a SWAT team I take my optics seriously. I recently completed a new rifle build and decided on a Vortex Viper PST to top it off. After waiting almost two months I came across the Weaver and became intrigued. I could not find a lot of reviews but the Vortex seemed to be a myth at this point anyway so I pulled the trigger. Optics Planet had me the scope in three days and I was impressed from the start. It is a hefty and well build scope with very high quality glass, every bit as good as my Leupold MK 4 and Trijicon accupoint. The FFP was a deciding feature and the EMDR is better then the mildot design I grew up with. The eye relief is generous and the illumination, a hit or miss prospect with most scopes, is excellent with no bleed over even at the highest illumination. I have now put over 600 rounds through the scope and it has move to my duty system replacing my MK 4, mostly because I find the EMDR more functional then the mildot. I even took the scope to a recent sniper school and it held up better great. I would not say it is the equal of a USO or S&B, but then neither is the Vortex I was waiting for, but for a $700 piece of glass it's equal would be hard to find.
Pros: Great glass, returns to zero, stout and able to take a beating, FFP and easy to set zero
Cons: zero stops would be a nice addition, but I nitpick...

Weaver 3 - 15 x50 30mm tactical scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NY Written on December 5, 2011
Great Mil-dot scope for the money. A first focal plane scope costing hundreds less. Weaver has out done themselves on this scope. Good glass, clear and bright. Locking turrets and re-zero capabilities. "Box test" shows the turret MOA to be right on. I'm very happy with this scope.
Pros: First focal plane, good glass
Cons: No lens covers...
