Hey guys -

Mr. Farris can attest to the quality of the build and optics.
he's tested this exact scope.


I am clearing out some of my guitar and gun stuff -
got a baby on the way and need to make room and money.
This is my only scope not sitting on a rifle.  It kills me to part with it.






This lightstream scope (european company, japanese glass) is every bit as good as the elite 4200's and is perfect for lowlight and longrange. 

If you were to buy one new it would cost you $733 bucks right now.  First $350 gets it.  This one is like brand new - it spent ONE day on top of a 700P .223 - I was testing out the scope - performed WONDERFULLY for optics and tracking.  This scope is like new out of the box.  It really is as good as the 4200's both in lowlight, mechanics, build and illumination.

It's got side focus - very smooth - it's got resettable target turrets (but not the obnoxiously high ones) with positive clicks -easy to turn with gloves - the illuminated ballistic reticle is fantastic in lowlight.  And the glass is every bit as good as conquest, 4200, and monarch.
I have had all and could side by side compare them at one time.

I wish i had a rifle to put this on, but i do not and that doesn't seem to be in my near future.  This baby has been sitting in her box for a couple years.

If you are building a precision rifle and need a wonderul optic.  You can't buy a scope to hang with this one for under 8 or 900 bucks.  I can promise that.

I also have Warne Rings and an EGW base for a Rem 700 short action for a bit extra - add $75 for rings and base.


Thanks, Guys.

forgot to mention - it's a 30mm tube - solid as a tank.

that's a good question - I'm not entirely sure. 
I'll check the paperwork when I get home and see if it says.

It does not seem tight to me at all FOV-wise @ 5x.

I know it will focus parallax free as close as 30 feet.

I'll post you what I find out.  Thanks.

Another good question -

I assume it's got a good adjustment range as it's on a 30mm build - is there an easy way to find this out?  The paperwork that came doesn't have the specs on it - just instructions, maintenance, mil dot explanations, etc.

Magshooter, also it doesn't list FOV, is there a way to find this out otherwise?

Chris Farris might be able to tell you, he did the box test on one and shot it downrange.
He is MUCH more knowledgeable on this sort of thing.  I just know it's bright, sharp, and works. ;)

well, if you don't have any specs on it, the only way is to dial elevation "all the way" one way and then count the clicks dialing back the other direction, same with windage.

200 clicks elevation / 200 clicks windage
(give or take - i did it kinda quick)

1/4" @ 100 yrds per click.

Let me know if that is what you needed.  Thanks.
