I took this scope out after mounting it to my Springfield NM M1A and zeroed it at 100 yards. The image was super clear and the reticle was sharp and clear. The eye relief was perfect for my rifle. After shooting four nickel size groups at 100 yards I figured I was set for deer season. The test came in January when I had a deer in my sights. The image was so clear and sharp it freaked me out because I was shooting across a slew and it seemed way off. The range estimation worked perfectly, ... according to the user's manual and with scope set on 14 power, the yardage was 285 yards approx. Down it went and it took 3 hours to rub the cramps out of my face from smiling.
Great for low recoil like .204R, .22-.250, .243 and such because short eye relief. Would recommend extension rings or bases for mounting on long action rifles and mounting this scope on a long action Ruger M77 would involve 30mm extension front ring. Like the optics - bright clear at max power with sharp defined edges of field. Adjustments are easy to make without tools - don't need Allen wrenches for tiny Allen screws. Just pull out turn and push back. I have them set for 70 grain Berger VLD ... .22-.250 and 87 Hornady VMax zeroed at 200 and 2nd bar down hits at 300 for both. I can look through these scopes for hours without problems.
These binoculars are amazing! Not even for the price! The only thing (and I'm being nitpicky here) that would be better is if they were a little lighter, but my experience with binoculars is minimal so I don't have a load of $1,000+ optics lying around at my house. However, if you're looking for a pair that you can bang around the mountains or woods in and they work phenomenally, then these binoculars just might be what you're looking for. Excellent glass, excellent performance, excellent ... warranty...you cannot go wrong with Vortex!
I have had other brands of optics and none as clear as these! My wife wanted to know what was so special about the vortex that the others we already have didn't do, so when we got them home I took her in the back yard and had her look through the old pair then the diamondbacks. she said she couldn't tell the difference, so I told her to do it again and count the flowers at the top of the hill,they were a blur with our old pair when she looked through the diamondbacks she got excited and said "I ... can see the honey bees on the flowers". We are both sold!
This spotting scope is awesome! I've used it for deer, elk, and Barbary sheep hunting. Never had an issue! Definitely a good spotting scope if you're on a budget! The warranty Vortex offers is amazing! I dropped this on a deer hunt and scratched the lense pretty good and sent it off and within 8 days of shipping it to Vortex I had it back! I own a few Vortex scopes and binoculars as well and they are all awesome! I will never buy another brand of optics.
My buddy just picked this scope up before our archery deer season. We spent five days in the backcountry of Colorado chasing monster mulies. I was able to see how this scope performed and it did well the clarity of the optics were great and had no issues with the lenses foging up in the cool early morning hours. I will be investing in these optics for my self. I was berry impressed, and way cheaper then the top of the line optics like leopold or sworavski.
I had a vxlll that was ruined and sent it in just for leuapold's team to look at and they said they would be replacing it for me. I called them and got someone who could actually speak English very clearly and was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I just got the new scope today and it was upgraded to the new model for free because they didn't make the model I had anymore! Wow! Thanks for a great product and service that goes well beyond what anyone would ever expect. Thank you thank you thank ... you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'!'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Michael
Yes, Leupold outsourced some of their glass making, which 99% of optic companies have done in order to stay in business. FYI, Japanese glass is some of the best in the world. I currently own several Leupold, Zeiss, Vortex, Kahles, you name it. And I always keep coming back to Leupold because of the quality and price. For the price, they just can't be beat. And remember this folks, buying Leupold means you're buying (mostly) American. I still have scopes from the 1980's that have held zero for 30+ years.
The 4.5-14X42 Droptine replaced an older 6X Burris Widefield I had on a sporter weight Ruger M77 MKII 22-250. The extra magnification really helps my 69-year-old eyes. When zeroing the rifle/scope the adjustments worked perfectly. The scope is typically Burris bright, which is an advantage at the indoor 100m range I was using. I quit shooting when I had a 1/2" three shot group off the sandbags at 100 yards. I could see myself pull the last shot to the left so it didn't join the first two in ... their common bullet hole.
Optics are very clear. I have the G2B Mil-Dot reticle...a little too "busy" for me but the mil-dots and hash marks are very clear. For my eyes, the 14X didn't seem to offer more than my other 12X scope, and I'm stepping up to something in the 18X to 20X range. I would recommend it to those who like the G2B Mil-Dot reticle.
Very happy with the wolverine. As my first red dot, I wasn't sure what to expect. I shot with others before, and know they can be hit or miss. My first time at the range with this I was hitting a tight group for a red dot. It was dead on. The dot was crisp and easy to see quickly. I personally haven't abused it, but knowing its durability ratings make this an awesome optic for the price.
Shot this with this red dot last week, when I first got my hands on it I was very please with how rugged it was built felt like a tank. very east to zero in, clean clear glass and nice crisp reticle, It a little large for my liking but there is a csr model that is smaller that operated the to the exact same quality!
My wish list , great for outdoors fun and sports must try
Best dang scope I have ever purchased! BDC is just right.
I installed this on my run of the mill Remington model 700 270 ADL. I used hand-loads of nosler 130 grain ballistic tip spitzer rounds with 56 grains of IMR 4831 powder and cci primer. OAL of 3.427 @ 100 yds the bullets all touch and @ 200 the first BDC brought me to withing 2 inches low of the bulls-eye without ever reading the "how to" on using the BDC system. (It was a little breezy and a slight incline)The zero-able turrets are great. My first outing had me taking a 125 yd shot at a nice 8 ... pt buck through all kinds of brush in the late afternoon. bullet easily made it through the "window" between two large trees and brought my venison down. The next afternoon was similar, very close shot at 50 yds 30 minutes after sunset, very dark, and placed a neck shot on a nice doe. the light gathering of this scope made my old simmons 44 mag look pathetic. There is a whole lotta bang for the buck in this package. It gave me confidence I never had before. The bullet groups are tighter (maybe hand loads) but the clarity and light gathering compared really pleased me, best hunting money spent so far.
i had problems with another reputable brand. Anything can happen to any brand. That is the way it is. Nothing is perfect 100% of the time. I thought I would try these rings on my new set up. There is nothing wrong with them. I like them. I like the idea of 4 screws on the base and 4 screws on the scope. These rings solved my accuracy problem. No regrets on the rings and they look nice.
Mounted my VX2 on my FNAR with these. Tight fit that gives me confidence In my rig. 100 plus rounds with zero movement
great scope 8+,clear,light and tough would tell a friend about the service and product
great product works great on my Mossberg tact 308 have many other tasco scopes I am happy with them all. great scopes for the dollar.
Small, compact, light, exceptionally clear optics and powerful adjustable zoom. Great product for hiking, hunting.
Great binoculars!Magnificent view,even at 24x magnification,optics are great,multi coated lenses that offer crisp,bright images!I will recommend it to most of my friendsVery happy with my purchase!
I was looking for a compact, travel size and found that Steiner has this model. The weight and over-all size are great! Travel size. That mattered to me because I carry a lot of camera equipment. Look and feel are very nice. Even though these are compact they have a good feel, even in large hands. The double hinge design is very nice for adjusting to your face width. Focusing is easy enough and the optical quality seems really nice for the 22mm size!! In general, I am quite happy and ... looking forward to taking on a big trip.
This is the first Steiner product I have purchased. I use it primarily for sporting events. I had a slight issue with my binoculars. Steiner provided outstanding customer service resolving my issue. Based on this experience, I'm a customer for life. Thank you!!!
Got, sighted the scope and will hunt with it next week. Only deal you have to remember is to flip your scope so the adjustments are not on the eject side. Then when you adjust remember the up and down and left and right are not as you see them written on the scope.
All I can say is WOW! I tried 3 different night vision scopes, not thermal, and wasn't happy with any of them. I really wasn't expecting too much out of the lower priced thermals like the Predator. Well I was dead wrong! Anything alive lights up like a Christmas tree. Resolution is great up to 2X after that it does get a little pixelated but still shootable. I really don't see a need for going over 2X for my usage anyway. Watched 6 does the other night unmounted and at 150 yards could see their ... ears. My son said he could see our Labradors heart signature at 70 yards. If you wanna kill coyotes and pigs at night, look no further.
Every now and then I was looking through thermal scopes to buy a new one for myself and eventually stumbled upon a Predator weapon sight. At first it seemed like the unit was nothing special, but after digging a bit deeper I saw that this unit is definitely worth attention. I knew for sure what exactly I needed from a new device, since I had experience using thermal weapon sights, and Predator met all my requirements. It combines outstanding target acquisition capabilities with simple ... sighting-in (it took me 2-3 shots to do it). Adding to that, this scope has bunch of useful picture enhancements that smoothed over the only minor disadvantage my Predator has. I mean lens size. In fact, this is not a real disadvantage, since some of you may want to have a scope with 25 mm lens. Adding to that, I have a thermal unit for a price of regular night vision. To put it in a nutshell, Predator is a great solution for me. Finally I am able to enjoy every minute of hunting.
I first went to another sporting goods store and was given the wrong part. I went to Acadamy....and they gave the correct part and it was shipped very fast. Satisfied customer.
I purchase three of these scopes for fast brush hunting in the Wisconsin swamps. Once you learn to use them they are very fast to use. Optics great. I, used one on .338 Mag Sako to goo sheep hunting and took a 40 inch plus Dall Sheep in Alaska. Other scopes did fog up, my Tasco did not, we laughed! They had $300-450 scopes and mine cost under $50.00. After I shot my ram they mounted my scope on their rifles. All took a ram and this Tasco saved the day. I gave it our outfitter after then. Go figure.
Great product, I've used allot of different type of sights, and by far this EOTech Holographic Hybrid Sight I™ EXPS3-4 with G33.STS Magnifier is the best site I've ever used!
This is a great scope and super easy to sight in. Very good purchase.
