It's garbage and a huge, cynical ripoff.

I have not talked with anyone who did not think that the Counter Sniper scopes were junk.

We would be happy to help you with some suggestions for a scope. Just let us know your budget, what you will be using it for and min and max ranges you are going to be shooting at.

When on a budget, features and gizmo's are not your friend. Simple, robust, and uber reliable!

Jon is just being polite.  These scopes give good headaches to anyone that uses them longer than 5 minutes.

I heard from an ex special agent secret squirrel warrior / operator that these were used extensively by team alpha male delta icon force bravo team xx1 in multiple theaters of operation including the raid and ultimate capture and castration of Obe Wan Kanobi

These are not good scope, at all.  They are pure marketing.  They are also not government over-runs.  To date, I am ware of no government contracts awarded to CounterSniper optics, and I know of no agencies that use their optics.

M14s are difficult to scope, are you planning to mount over the action or forward?  I have some experience in mounts scopes on both a SOCOM and a loaded M1A, with varying degrees of success.

First advice, above all other advice: don't buy a Countersniper!

If it is to be a patrol gun, I would mount a red dot, very fast on target, good out to about 300 yards (in my experience.)  I'd look at Aimpoint, anything from M3 or up.
