    Posted: February/05/2007 at 21:30

I was prett much decided on the 10x Super Sniper which I planed on ording tomorrow but just I took a look at the nikon monarch's because of the clearance sale and see the 3.3-10x44 is basically the same price as the SS. 

 

I don't care for the variable power and would most likely leave it a 10x.

 

I'm looking for durability and good quality glass. Is the SS10x42 better for this or is the nikon a clearly a better scope for the same price.  Also, the SS needs 30mm rings which would add about $65 to the cost.  I already have 1" rings.

 

Your advice is appreciated,

Smitty

The Monarch is certainly more flexible. Unless you just plan to
punch paper off a bench the 3-10 would be a more useful choice.
10X is a lot of Xs if the bad guy is running across your field at 50 yards at twilight.

+ 1 on what root says.

 

if you are gonna punch paper w/ it only, get the SS.

 

if you are gonna hunt at all w/ it, OR paperpunch in the lowlight, get a variable.

 

both are great scopes, though.

For better or worse, I ordered the SS10x.  There are so many cool toys that in the end, I'm just going to have to get all of them.

 

So, whats a cheap rifle that would be fun to have the SS on?

Savage Bolt action. Cheap, accurate and accu-trigger is fantastic.

I to am stuck with this decision, I have a RRA that needs some glass adn I was going to go with the SS 10X but I take the gun out P-doggin sometimes, so I may just have to go with the Nikon.  The Savages are sweet a friend of mine has one in 243.  I want to add one in 308 to my safe one day.

Thanks

Good choice.  Read this review on this highly regarded sniper site and you will be doubly pleased by your decision.

Good post, D.

 

Mike Millers review of the SS is a little dated.

They have upgraded the SS since Mike wrote that review, if it was written in 2003.  

So their even better now...

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.
