We are pleased to annouce a new long range scope by a new company.  Coming soon......

 

 

X.O.T.I.C.

Ultimate Sniper Scope

4-16x56 Mil-Dot, Matte Finish, Side Focus, 30mm. USS416X56M $799.95

The design team at X.O.T.I.C. (Xtreme Operations Tactical Instruments Corporation) set out with one goal, to build the world's brightest, clearest, most durable, repeatable long range sniper scope in the world. Every top scope on the market today and some that are no longer made were dissected to make sure that the U.S.S. (Ultimate Sniper Scope) was better in every aspect.  No limitations were set while designing and testing the U.S.S.  Mil-spec requirements were not tough enough; most of our tests took the scope to a level never before seen in manufacturing.  Over two years of unimaginable real world tests were conducted to make sure that the end result was deserving of the title The Ultimate Sniper Scope.

The U.S.S. was designed and built around its rugged one piece, reinforced, aircraft structural aluminum, 30mm main tube.  The optical glass is hand selected and must meet exacting standards before it is ground or coated. Every lens is polished to perfection then fully multi-coated with proprietary non glare, high resolution coatings.  Special glues are used to resist discoloration in extreme heat environments.  The braces holding the lenses are double reinforced and every seal is waterproof and can withstand the pressure of depths down to 66 feet in salt water.  Pure dry nitrogen is used to fill the tube to prevent any chance of internal moisture fogging the lenses.  A special 340HV hardened anodized finish is baked on under extreme heat to make the tube scratch resistant on the outside, eliminate light loss through reflection on the inside and prevents internal flaking under excessive, extreme recoil.  A large torx head center screw holds the massive windage, elevation, and side focus parallax turrets securely to each shaft with splines.  Windage and Elevation adjustments are in 1/4  M.O.A. increments with over 100 M.O.A. of elevation adjustment to easily allow the shooter to engage targets beyond 1,000 yards without using special bases.  Extra effort went into the extremely tactile and audible turrets themselves to make sure they could be operated with or without gloves, easily being able to count clicks by ear and/or feel.  The adjustments actually use an innovative ball bearing design that guarantees they will never wear from contacting the inner tube.  A totally new gear system was developed and patented that makes the scopes body more than 34x stronger than a conventional design.  The objective lens is set back in the housing to reduce glint and protect the lens from damage.  The unbreakable, glass sandwiched, laser etched, mil dot reticle has been placed in the 1st focal plane to allow the shooter to range and shoot on any power setting while maintaining proper mil spacing.  The erector tube is held in place with an over sized coil spring system (in lieu of a leaf spring), this design can withstand extended heavy recoil from any caliber.  Most professional shooters are trained with fixed 10x scopes and prefer to shoot on 10x so a custom Power-Stop feature was incorporated that allows the shooter to stop on 10x without looking at the power selector.  The U.S.S. produces an unsurpassed 5.6mm exit pupil on 10x that will allow you to easily shoot in low light, long range situations.  10x is optimum for long range shooting in the heat of the day when mirages can be an issue.  The rubber edged ocular utilizes an oversized lug to quickly change magnifications and an easy to grasp, knurled fast focus eye piece that will allow the shooter to easily and quickly focus without having to rise up off of the weapon.  The oversized side focus parallax turret is marked in yardage from 50 to 1,000 but has the capability to adjust for parallax beyond 1,000 yards while the shooter remains in the shooting position.  The broad power range allows the shooter to easily locate targets on 4x with a super wide 23 foot field of view then zoom up to 16x if needed.

Mission accomplished is what you will say once you see the U.S.S. in person. As of right now these custom scopes are produced in small batches because of the complexity of their design and commitment to quality control.  The direct from the factory to shooter price is introductory, once these scopes are sold through conventional distribution channels they will retail for $1,200.00 - $1,500.00.  Place your order today for fall 2004 delivery.  Each scope has a two year direct-replacement warranty, meaning that the shooter will not have to be without a scope in the highly unlikely event that the scope fails.  X.O.T.I.C. is so confident that you will be pleased with your purchase of your Ultimate Snipe Scope that they offer a 30 day no questions asked money back guarantee with each and every U.S.S. scope sold.  And as if that was not enough each scope is also backed by a full

The press release only states fall 2004.  I don't know if there is anything equall to it.  I guess the closest would be a NF.

I am trying my hardest to get some photos of one and will post them as soon as I get them.

 

We were not supplied with a length or weight but being 56mm and extra heavy duty I bet it weighs a lot.  Right now it looks like there is only one model in one configuration.

Don't know anything about the picture other than it does not show the scope very good.  Still no weight and length.  I am trying to get better pics.  Our ad agency has some more that were used in our catalog that you can download here (page 6) and here (page 4). Large PDF files from our newest catalog.

The best information we have is that they will be here within two months.  I don't have any further details as far as specs go yet.

Not that impressed yet, the suits crap and id take light over beefy based on inertia. Plus you need 3 more milimeters of clearance to add to the leverage of the mounts most assuredly mounted to a high powered rifle. Psuedo L33T name with no obvious history might make it a hard sell. Love the warranty though. Dunno id have to see. -Clutter

It's nice to see a new company in our field of interest, but I am waiting to see how clear and bright it really is. Has anyone had a chance to handle one yet?

I was asked by the mfg and SWFA to test this scope and report on its short comings, while it was still in the Beta phase of development.  I am not employed by either organization. The usual method of testing results in a box of parts being returned to the mfg with a kind note citing those things that failed, the order they failed in, the cause and the solution. The write up on testing methodology and results would consume about 7 pages. In the case of this unit, despite my best efforts, it would not fail. I did manage to flake a small piece of the interior finish in some pretty brutal testing  over a couple months time, but that , and changing the method of attatchment on the adjustment knobs was the extent of the  list. The glass in this unit can be compared to the top 5 scope makers in the world and be found to equal all and easily exceed some.  Field of view is good, optical clarity is outstanding, right to the edge of the FOV.

chris does the reticle appear normal size at 10x then get larger as u crank up from 10? or does it appear normal at the lowest magnification then get progressively larger as u crank up through the power range.... i am indeed impressed by this scope as well as the price....

Mike Mc:

Your analysis looks extensive, and should be published in this forum.  I usually like to measure the resolution of a riflescope to quantify objectively its optical performance, which results from the summary of all aberrations remaining in the optical design and fabrication.  Can you measure the image quality at high and low power, both on the optical axis and at 2/3 of the full field of view??

 

The scope should resolve fine detail (like an optometrist's E-chart or AirForce target array) that corresponds to 16 times better than the unaided 20/20 eye at 16x, and four times better at 4x, on the optical axis. Off-axis resolution is normally accepted at 50% worse than axial perforance for average-priced scopes.  The 20/20 eye resolves (distinguishes) bar targets with 1 minute of angle between adjacent lines (legs on the letter E,) or about 1 inch pitch at 100 yards.

 

I realize that a riflescope is not a spotting scope, but rather gives a comfortable sight picture to direct projectiles.  Hoever, we like to see the target better in order to confirm IFF and confirm contact.

Thanks for the testing results to instill confidence in any new product offering, with or without warranty security.

Ken

Ken,

We did compare both the alpha test unit of 4 years ago and this unit
to the airforce chart, but I'm not able to comment on the results
as the mfg has 100% of the documentation on the project results,
which I surrendered to them at the end of testing.
In other words I'm not from memory able to
be precise in an answer to your question.

We looked for resolution, consistancy in focus though the power range, reticle clarity
and consistant target image at all power settings.

Also done was a side by side with the top 5 U.S. and Euro scope brands, their best grade scope
against the beta unit.

We also conducted "man on the street " testing which as you know is not scientific in and of itself
but does place several dozen sets of eyes behind the scope.
We chose people arriving at the test range who were shooting high end glass, and asked them to
look at and through the scope at ranges from 10 to 1000 yards, and give their opinion. No brand name, price, or sales outlet was mentioned.

Three questions were asked at the end of their inspection;
1. Rate the optical clarity 1-10
2. Rate the optical image against your brand scope
3. Would you buy this scope for $1200.00 today if it were available?

Question 1 was 9-10
Question 2 was by far, "my scope is this good" and "my scope is almost this good"
We did not hear "almost as good as my scope" from anyone
Question 3 was over 90% favorable. One gentleman offered his Euro scope and cash for the
demo unit he looked at.

As to publishing the methodology and results in step by step fashion, I don't own those
papers, the mfg does. Part of the deal.
You've done enough of these to know that field testing and reporting is like making sausage. Everyone wants to eat it but no one should ever see it made.
Seriously, there was alot of comparison between the alpha and beta models which should not be aired
as it really is proprietary, and there was no comparision in the quality of the apha and beta models.
The only common thread in the two units is the quality of the glass. That spec was
nailed right from the start.

Short summary, We did everything we could to destroy this unit (beta)
short of actually taking a masons hammer to it.
Clamped in a single ring.
Dropped while mounted to a 50 bmg rifle from waist height.
Kicked down range like a soccer ball.
Shot at night.
Shot way too much 50 bmg under it while clamped in one ring.
Intentionally mis-aligned in the ring set.
Shot a hellova lot of 338 lapua while mounted on a sporter weight rifle, this while doing box testing at 500 yards.
Shot 500 rounds of match grade ammunition in a 308 precision rifle, for group, while changing the elevation/windage by 40 moa then returning to zero-zero and taking the shot. 5 round groups
for 500 rounds, adjusting between every shot.

That's a quick summary from memory.

I already have an order placed with Chris to outfit my rifles.

Mike:

Thanks for the additional dope on prototypes A and B, it seems to be a good review of durability and survivability with the trial and error methods mandated in all developments of optical equipment.  Also, I understand and subscribe to the proprietary nature of any study funded by the manufacturer.  However, I still crusade for publication of all performance data, including the image quality, shift in point of aim, range focus accuracy, parallax between hi-lo powers, in addition to the standard specs for field of view, brow relief, weight/length, etc.  Most of the manufacturers know this dope for normal distributions of their production units, but are loathe to be constrained to publish and certify it.

Good shooting with your new gear when it arrives and gets interfaced with your thundersticks!!

Ken
