Pretty much a joke around here. No offense to you, friend, but we have dismissed Counter Sniper gear from serious conversation.

+1.

...because at least you wouldn't have much money invested in the paper towel roll.

I love this place. People are not afraid to cut to the chase. Plus I've seen very few strings that have gone too far off the topic. Kudos OpticsTalk.

They are extreme garbage, reviews have demonstrated this.  And their marketing is misleading at best, fraudulent most definitely.

They have been selling for years as "contract overruns" but they have never had a government contract.

I called a few years ago to ask what their berillium zantanium whatever coating was and they hung up on me.

Avoid at all costs.

Unless it is going on air soft.

RC that is only partially true... they do have a cage code that covers plastic eating utensils, toilet paper, soap, various and sundry kitchen and household items, and it appears that portion of their supply HAS indeed been active, though not extensively.   There is no evidence they have ever sold a rifle scope to the U.S. Government.

Which is amazing, considering the pack of clowns they have in DC these days and the speed with which they've been arming themselves to the teeth. That really says it all about CS scopes- that even those dumba$$es in DC have gotten the word;  CS scopes are not worth a mention.

We are genuinely not trying to be dicks, but this comes up on a regular basis.  Counter Sniper optics should be taken as seriously as any UN committee on human rights hosted by Iran. Or Sudan. Or North Korea.

Get the Bushnell or save a bit longer for a more purpose-fitting scope.
