Kinda like the EREK on a USO - great setup!

 

 

Chris, I "need" this scope, when can you get it?

Will IOR be offering the one-turn elevation to others or is this a speacial run for SH only?

 

I'm building a 300 and want to top it with this.  If I can't get this, will probably go with USO or maybe small-knob IOR - but I really want this!

 

No, strike that, I NEED this!

Special run, Ilya and Ceylonc have one on the way if not already. What a deal on such a fine scope.

Like Phil mentioned hopefully they will fit some of thier production models with this configuration soon.

I looked at it and don't see the one with the large elevation turret.

 

 

Chris, get this product and I will buy it from you!

How well are IOR made today a while ago they were sub par with next to no support?? Have IOR upgraded the internals such as using steel or S/steel for their internal adjustments "steel on steel" as many say you don't hear a lot technical information about IOR.

 I don't know what they were like a while ago, but there is nothing "sub-par" about the new one I have. It is very close to the very best.

I would like to buy one also but what ever I go with will have to come from SWFA so Im looking at the same IOR in  FFP whatever knobs the ones Chris gets in, or the not released 6.5-20 FFP Leu MK4. I think either one would work for my 300 Win GAPrecision.

Chris, I "need" this scope, when can you get it?

 

Yes, but not until next month.  Val has 100 on the ground in the U.S. but they are pre-sold to the group that helped spec out the scope at SnipersHide.com.  Right now Val and Scott are going through the orders to fill the existing SH crowd then if any are left they will sell them to other dealers.  We have a standing order with them to clean up all the left overs.

 

Once they are gone they plan to offer the 3-18 non illuminated as a standard item on their price list.

 

The new wider, lower elevation will be standard on most of the IOR tactical line soon.

Define, if you can, "soon."

 

The rifle will be in-hand "soon" and the scope will be needed "soon."

From my understanding IOR ships at the end of the month....So if these are all sold then I would guess in September and thats if they have more on the way.  Since they are stopping production to correct a turret issue that some/if not all have with it.

So the choice is 4-8 weeks for the IOR or 10-12 weeks for the USO.  Dammit!
