Default Konus M30

Does anyone have any experience with the Konus M30 scopes. From what I have read they are packed with features.

Just looking for your views.

Konus is an Italian company that is imported to the US. I've been after an M30 myself since January but finally gave up in May. The order I had put in with Optics Planet got pushed back 3 seperate times. I spoke with a fellow at Optics Planet and he said that the company makes good quality optics but they hardly ever ship on time and you may be old and gray by the time you get the particular scope you're after.
If you ever get your hands on one I wouldnt mind hearing your opinion on them from hands-on experience.

I was actually originally after the m30 6.5-25x one, but I found a decent substitute.

Well I gave up on this scope that is in everyones cataloge and no one actually has. I now have a scope in shipment that cost 3 time as much however thay had it. Weaver 4 to 20 SF, FFP, tactical. Now for the sun shield and caps, thats another $60. Wish me good fortune as I don't think the rings they said are high enough in fact are.

Weaver scopes are good, they've been in the business long enough to know more than a few tricks of the trade. At least with more expensive scopes you are less likely to get a bad scope since generally quality control goes up. Hope it all works out nicely for you.
