Worked a sniper match last weekend.
 Had the opprotunity to see two name brand scopes hit the ground from less than waist  high, both were same manufacture, both altered zero setting more than 3 moa  One of these train wrecks was nothing more than the rifle falling over when the buttstock was already on the ground.

I'd think for the $1000.00 plus asking price these would have held up better. 
Neither scope started  with an "L".

They're Janapese in origin.

Seems to be a shame to spend upward of $3500.00 on a tac rifle and dump another 2 grand into optics and mounts
only to find you've got a wonderfully camo'd up range queen set up.

This is the precise reason I beat the snot out of my stuff.
