Supertool73,

Wasn't there a contract with the Navy or at least an evaluation for use by the Navy for the SS?

I'm not sure.  The info I am trying to paraphrase I got from an article that I read a while back that Chris wrote about it.  I cannot find it or I would have just posted it.

Ok, I'm back with good news. The old Truck held out until I could trade it in. Yea, I took a beating on that too but it had to go. Finally, I saved a little here and there and about 20 grass mowings later I saved enough and got a Burris XTR 3-12. I got a great deal on it directly from Burris. I got it about 3 days ago and wouldn't ya know it, karma kicked me in the a$$ again. The day it arrived I tore a calf muscle(long story) so I can't get out to the range. Guess thats what I get for getting a good deal.
Anyway, I haven't seen many reviews on that scope and would appreciate any links or info on it. Also if I can muster up the walking distance I'll put it all together and post a picture.

What ever happened to the old SS? Or did I just miss that in the thread?

And for the record I can sympathize this buying something from one place and being told to send it somewhere else for repair. It always seems when you to the the 'somewhere' else is slow to respond.

I think, by reading these threads and please correct me if I'm wrong anyone, the old SS were made by Tasco. The rights were sold to SWFA and its confidential who is actually making them now.
 
And yes, Bushnell took their time letting me know what I had wasn't a SS. But its my fault. I should have taken it to someone who knew what they were talking about instead of listening to an uninformed individual.

I don't think Tasco made anything.  I think they are just a name and they pay some foreign optics company to make the scopes for them to certain specs as many scope names do.
