finally got to check one out in person
VERY impressed with it
checked it out against several others including a S&B 1.5-6x42 Zenith Flashdot and a Zeiss 1.5-6x42 Diavri

I was pleasantly shocked at how sharp, bright and clear the glass was on it in direct contrast to $2K scopes.. very forgiving eye position, true 1x, etc...

got one coming in the Germa # 4 with the green dot
should be a perfect fit for my new 16" 6.8 upper that shipped today :)

yippe!
hogs beware

It looks like AR15 Performance has two in stock. At least according their site. But they are the upscale Recons and loaded up with goodies and not cheap. The Recon is the Xtreme with a lapped Lothar barrel and an upgraded bolt.

Daily Special
6.8 RECON-16" chromelined 11.25 twist, polygonal rifled barrel,
Daniel Defense rail, Pri flip sight, FSC30 flash.
All top of the line- 2 in stock $1164 as shown below

my first 6.8 was a 16" RRA
then I got on the 68 forums and got schooled on it

got an 18" stainless from AR15, one of H's personal used barrels

decided after a year I wanted a lighter one for stalk hunting
I thought about cutting the barrel but it was better to just sell it

mine's a 16" recon (lothar handlapped barrel and chrome lined) 11.25 twist, polygonal rifling, Troy Extreme 9" forearm and the ITS super bolt

can't wait to wack some piggies with it

Very cool. I was an early bird on his waiting list for an Xtreme and when he started getting ready to actually build the first batch he asked if I'd rather have a lapped Lother barrel for a small upcharge. I said yes but had no idea until today that I'd actually bought a Recon and not an Xtreme. I posted on 6.8 and Harrison said call it what you like but that's a Recon.

sure hope you have good luck with the Trijicon holding zero??? They will be great scopes if they ever get stronger erector springs and a LOT more positive clicks....................

I emailed to ask if they still had the "daily special."  If so, the search is over.

You guys suck, I just bought the upper, one left, now I gotta figure out how to scope it and how to scope the new  40X.  I need new friends and a cheaper hobby!

I'll let you know how the Burris XTR 1-4x24 does next week. It's a 35-40 mile drive to the range and I need to wait for a couple of goodies that should be here mid week.

I can't say I've ever heard of a rifle scope described as "delicious," but I agree, the TR24 is very nice!

just commented on that thread, send me some pics of the setup.  I might be interested, am kinda leaning toward the 1-4, though.  I have the 3-9 and not sure I need 9X for this gun - then again, I might, haven't done anything with a 6.8 yet, can't wait to play with it.
