I have been in the market for a Mil/Mil scope for a couple months now( Finishing my first custom built rifle).  I have been pouring over posts trying to settle on a one to buy.  I have been leaning towards a Falcon Menace in 4x14.  I have looked at the SS 3x9 but it is out of my price range.  Does anyone have first hand knowledge of the Falcon or any other Mil/Mil in this range.  This is my first post so please be easy on me.

Me personally I'd save another month or however long it takes to get the SS3-9, its that good.  If your a member of snipershide they occationally run specials on there for members and you can get a little off the top.

This will be going on a 6.5 Creedmoor and I would like to reach out to 1000yrd.  I wasn't' sure how doable that would be with a 3x9 and no parallax.

SVT,

Have you had a chance to look through a Falcon.  How would you rate the glass against other scope lines.  I love the SS 3x9, but I am also going to be using this to shoot prairie dogs and think the higher power would be better for the small targets at long range.

Welcome


If you're in Ft. Worth, you're plenty close enough to go over to the SWFA store. They'll let ya look through what they have and also be able to make suggestions. 


I have a Falcon Menace and like it a lot. I've heard durability and the 5 year warranty combine for folks being unhappy when the warranty runs out. To me if you put back 7 bucks a month for 5 years you can replace it with a new one if it breaks after 5 years. I've put about 250 rounds of .30-06 through my bolt gun the Falcon rides on. I've got it zero'd at 200 yards, and don't do a lot of playing with the knobs. I've had no issues at all with mine.
