Some of you know that I only buy one brand of scope (USO), however today while at the gun store picking up Leupold 30mm rings for my .204 Ruger #1, I had a chance to fondle the subject scope.
 
I must say I was impressed. Even out the window (bad idea because you add the distortion of the window to the results) I could at 75 yards in medium bright conditions see individual "spines" on a fir tree limb which are about 1/16 in diameter. Scope was not overly contrasty and had knob locks and eyepiece european stile rapid focus.
 
While I believe the scope sells for around $1600 at retail, the sale price was $1395 which puts it within acceptable limits for base price of comparable qualilty scopes. All else being equal, it seems that people in Beaverton are finally getting their act together.
 
Only thing I would like to see if reticle scale with same units as knobs. (either MOA or MIL).
But after all the years of resisting progress, they are slowly getting it togeher.

might want to add how well the turrets were built in relation to some scopes in that price range that use plastic turrets.
