    Found a brand new Cabelas brand Premium Alaskan guide series 6-20x40 for less than $200 (store price is $350).  A friend needs the money and never mounted this scope and still in box.  Anyone have any experience with this line?  I would put it on a bull barrel .223 for prairie dogs, coyotes and plinking. 

 

    Looking for any info that you guys can give me on this one.  Looks like it is worth the 200 and Cabela's normally will back up their products, but I also don't want a problem child either.

 

Thanks for any and all comments.

 

Mark

I have an Alaskan Guide 3 - 12 x 52mm mounted on a 300winmag. It was on my Ruger # 1 25-06 until about a year ago. The model I have has a 30mm tube and finger adj. turrets w/ dust caps. What I have found is it holds zero quite well and adjustments are pretty crisp and accurate. The eye relief is a little short for my taste. That is one reason I took it off the Ruger(long length of pull), I had to stretch forward and it strained my neck in doing so after a while. Clarity is ok, but not quite edge to edge and it isn't as bright as I expected from a 52mm scope. I'm pleased overall though, as it is pretty tough and puts the bullet where you aim.
