Anyone have one, have time behind one? Koshkin gave it his seal of approval, so the proverbial trigger is pulled, just looking for affirmations - or horror stories.

Mine will be evaluated next to my go-to favorite: a Hensoldt 3-12x56. If it comes close, I'll be ecstatic; if it surpasses...

It is going on a Seekins 6.5Creedmore in an Aadmount - one of the first, I think.

More to follow.

Congratulations.  You have chosen wisely.  Both a mechanical and optical work of engineering excellence.  

Oh yeah, Brandon has a 5-25.

I have 2 of them in my possession at the moment. I'm currently building 2 rifles for my brother and his business partner. Both rifles have the TT3-15X50 30mm XR mil. I just completed 1 rifle and spent about 4 hours at the range with it yesterday. There is nothing not to like about the TT 3-15, except maybe less total adjustment range vs some competing tactical scopes. Otherwise, it tracks perfectly, knobs are superb, click feel is very positive and precise, optics first-rate, XR reticle is a nice design, illumination system is well-designed. I will end up buying one for myself for an upcoming build I have planned.

Mine is awful... Damn glass is to clear, adjustment knobs fit my fingers to well, the clicks are to crisp and clean, it tracks to perfect thru out all the adjustments. I hate this one so much..... I want to try a few more just to see if this one is a fluke.. I don't like the ARD as it made everything look a tad blurry to me but that's me. I can't look thru a screen door with out my eyes crossing.


It will be in the top 3 scope you have ever used RC. they are that nice.

Since it's doesn't suit you BD, I'll give you 20 bucks for it, and I promise not to tell anyone where it came from, so you wont feel embarrassed.

Of course. As is customary on OT, if you absolutely HATE something, it only follows logically that you should buy 17 of them in order to hate them with the proper vigor.

  I'm happy to do what I can for to betterment of this forum. If I have to put forth such a sacrifice, then so be it. If and I mean "if" someone felt it would be necessary to do some sort of fund to help easy the pain of such a lose while doing such a good dead in testing and suffering while using  this product out for the public masses. I would not be apposed and would take all the help I can get, there is still a few in stock that needs to be grabbed up before an unsuspecting consumer gets a hold of one and has an awful reaction and travels down this velvet lined worm hole .


SO stand up and donated today and lets remove these from the innovatory...... PM me for an address to send the donations....Bandito

No, that's just natural for me.

Actually, I traded in a Premier Heritage 3-15 on it.  It is a great scope (Koshkin used mine for his evaluation of the model a few years back), but:
1. Warranty went away when Premier folded.
2. It has a gen2 mil dot rather than my preferred gen2XR.

So, I traded up, but watch the samplelist for a great Premier 3-15.  It is a fantastic scope, and only out of an overabundance of caution did I go to TT.

But I have very high hopes for the TT.

As I told Skylar, if it is optically equal to the Premier, I'll be ecstatic; if it is superior, so much the more!

Thanks! No, that's a molded-in finish as it came from McMillan. They call that "Coyote Ambush." It is a 4-color pattern of tan, dark earth, coyote brown, and olive drab. The splotching looks a lot like the appearance you can get using the "sponge camo" application technique that's popular right now.

The stock is McM's new "Game Warden" hybrid hunting/tactical design, this one with adjustable cheekpiece.

I like it a lot!

I received a delivery confirmation email from UPS at 1756 yesterday, checked my front door, no package.  I do so love UPS.  They are, forevermore, striving to get the package to a house near mine, and on that - and that alone - they succeed.

I went to my neighbor's house, and there on his front step was my new Tangent Theta.  A not inexpensive package, designated "signature required", sitting on his front porch.

I hate UPS.  And yes, "hate" is a strong word, and here it fits.

First thoughts on the TT will follow shortly.

Tag.  I've always believed my March scopes were the pinnacle for me, but this has me curious.
