does anbody have experiance with any "counter sniper" scopes? especially the ones with the TDRM sighting system?
I have just built a very tricked out REM 700 tacticle rifle in 308 and am having my SWA M!A modified to NM standards.
I was planning on putting Night Force scopes on both of them, but was wondering about the Counter Sniper scopes. Too good to be true at less than half the price of NF ?
any input good or bad from people that have actually shot these scopes?

Here is a good way to describe the scope.  Buy one.  When it arrives take the box it comes in and Duct tape the biotch to your gun instead of the scope.  Throw the scope itself in the garbage, the box will do a better job than the scope will.

Because I have some sado-masochistic tendencies, I went and read AGAIN the stuff on the CounterSniper website.  Dang, I found myself wanting one before I got halfway through the hype.
 
I've not "shot one", but intend to as soon as I can get my hands on one... when I shoot one it is generally with my .458 Lott, but in this case, I might upgrade to Elvira...  I HAVE looked at them at a couple of gun shows.  What I've noticed is that those who sell them don't really want anyone to pick them up... probably don't want to scratch the Bertrillium-Zantitium (by the way, where does Betrillium-Zantitium place on the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements???)
 
I have two words...  CAVEAT EMPTOR...

It would be better to take a paper towel roll (yes, the thin, cardboard roll), paint it black ,and affix that to the gun.  If you need a reticle, tape 2 hairs to the end for aiming point.

Counter Sniper is the optics equivalent to Baghdad Bob, the propaganda officer for the Iraqi army who said, at the start of the US invasion, that the Iraqi army would utterly decimate our forces.

Baghdad Bob and Counter Sniper have about the same truth:BS quotient.  Which is, roughly, 0:100.

Ugh...yet another Dark Ops Holding *product*. These are the same folks who brought us Extreme Shock ammo and Kingon Empire inspired blades IIRC.

Here's a sad story for you; I have a friend who won some sort of CSO 1-4 optic a couple of years back. Man, the glass was so grey it was like looking in to a cloud just before it rains.

Run away from Counter Sniper Optics. Fast.

Just say NO 


Go to a couple of gun shows and look at what the people selling C.S. scopes are also selling. You'll find tactical ball point pens, Eotech knock offs, ninja pellets and close combat dvd's guaranteed to turn you into a street fighting champ in 30 minutes. 


If you want Nightforce quality, spend the money and get it.

I suppose this all means that this "brand" wouldn't be the best choice for my 40 Mega-Watt, Condensed Beam, Phaser! What a disappointment! Shocked Somehow I thought it would be ideal for close range work against attacking grasshoppers! Oops, I are one! LOL
 
Sorry, just couldn't resist!

That's true stickbow.  The laser autofocus, target acquistion systems and gyros are found in very few other scopes.
