Cool; you've got a McRee chassis, also.
 
Tell me about the camo job-who did it, colors, etc. I knew I didn't want one of the stock colors, so I got mine in bare metal. Still trying to figure what I want for a finish.

Curious about the optical quality in there.  The II I played with functioned fine, but the optical quality was too dim for my liking.

Glass is Noticeably Better than the one I used last year. 
Quite a few improvements:
More magnification (12x was the max and now it is 16x), windage tics (Sort of like a Horus) with wind correction listed in the optic with the distance (set-up for a 10mph FV wind).
Although the reticle is in the second focal plane, the technology allows you to use it at any magnification-Effectively a FFP optic. Automatically corrects when shooting at angles.
The laser rangefinder should be effective at about twice the distance of the original design, the design is more slim/aesthetically pleasing, adjustable objective, also has a slightly larger eye box than the original.
The ballistic software upgrade in this design is far superior to the first one as well.
That is what comes to mind at the moment.
This is why I am real excited to get this baby out and run it!

Thanks. Will look at their site.
Although they are fundamentally different, I think it would be interesting to compare the Eliminator to Digital Hunter.
