Do you think SWFA will every add illumination option for the SS 10x HD.

The only other scope in the SS HD 10x class is IOR's 10x and it has an illuminated option, but it is moa/mil setup.

Next step would be a USO.  Trying to keep the scope under $1K for this build.

I'll ask you to take further commentary to the Almost Anything Goes forum, you can start a new thread there, but in what respect do you think it is a "righteous avatar".

if you insist on it, I'll explain.
As you know our government announced a war on terrorism, more so after 9/11.
If you look back to 1500s, that's how this land was exactly taken from the natives.  So my point is terrorism is a relative term.  Meaning, a group is claimed to be terrorist dependent upon the standing the opposite group has.  Example, Palestinian liberation army is a terrorist group to Israel, but a liberation army to Palestinians.  By the same token to Native Indians the European explorers were terrorist b/c they took the land by force and unmatched power.

Back on topic - No I dont think they will do illumination on the 10x HD scope it was built to spec for a particular U.S. Government Contract aparently they did not need that feature.  Illumination can be as much of a problem as a benefit. Electrical systems with battery power present problems in combat especially since odd battery sizes are more common than not. Note the Comp M4 uses one AA battery which you can find almost anywhere.  The idea of using multiple optics on one rifle like a 10x supplimented by a small illuminated red dot scope is more common than one would think.
If you need illumination consider the 5-20x50 with illumination.

Several things are absolutely clear... you cannot understand and/or follow direction at all.  Your understanding of world history and affairs is only less than your understanding of American history and affairs.

You have probably never been so wrong in your life, this is one of those times.
