     Well, I was thinking the other day about how great a variable power Super Sniper would be, but it doesn't look like that will materialize anytime soon.  So, the next best thing in my mind would be to expand the Super Sniper line with a lower magnification scope.  I very rarely use my current 10x SS past 500 yards and the vast majority of my shots are made at less than 300 yards.  I personally feel that 10x magnification at anything less than 300 yards is overkill when you are shooting at things other than paper targets.  I like the concept of a 6x scope as the IDF has been using them on their M14's for quite some time. I also feel that the 6x scope would be a good compromise between magnification and FOV when shooting smaller calibers such as .223, which have a limited range. I bet the AR crowd would be very interested in something with a little less power as I see people asking if 10x is too much for their setup. 

     So most importantly, am I the only one looking for a scope with less magnification in the same style of the existing SS?  Without the support of the people on this forum I see this idea going nowhere fast, so please voice your opinions.


     Other things I wouldn't mind seeing in the Super Sniper line would be a choice of reticle’s or even a BDC. I would really like to see something like the Leupold Tactical Milling Reticle which is a very nice design and extremely easy to range with.  Although these changes would probably jack up the price of the scope a bit it would still be a steal compared to your other choices.

A 6x Super Sniper would be a pretty interesting scope.  I've got a few of those Israeli scopes you are referring to and I am happy with them (although I'll probably put a couple of them up on Ebay to generate some cash for a different project).

You may also consider an IOR's excellent 6x42 scope that has MP8 reticle.
