Good looking rifles,I hope the scopes will hold up for you.

I learned many years ago,you get what you pay for with optics.

True, but I first heard about them when a buddy of mine brought his very light Stevens m200 in .308 over and sense has put 1k rounds threw it with that scope. It still holds zero and nothing has came lose. If u ever shot a 5 or 6lb .308 its enough to break most cheap scopes.

The no fault life time warrantee is is also nice.
They also claim to be .50BMG rated.

Here is a quote directly from there website


Green and Red Illuminated Rangefinding Glass-Etched Reticle, 1000 yard range with

lock-down finger-adjustable windage and elevation turrets. 1/8 m.o.a. sighting clicks

and side parallax adjustment. Japanese “Hoya” lenses ** Fully, multi-coated glass lenses throughout

30mm tube, rings and lens caps included. Spin centered for balance to provide sighting head start

and repeatibility. In additon, this unit has been quality controlled for shock resistance ( 50 BMG

parameters), waterproofing, and fog proofing. Anti-reflective paint used and light stops added to

reduce internal reflections and to provide high-contrast image. Generous eye relief depending on

model and magnification. FULL NO FAULT LIFETIME WARRANTY

Just out of curiosity, how did you adjust/calibrate the scope level relative to the rifle receiver and scope?

Well I set the level on the scope by using a 4' level at 25 yards, and got the cross hairs level, locked down in a vice I set the level to be level, and rechecked.

Then I put the rifle in a vice and got the rail on the receiver level with a small level, and mounted my scope to the rifle while the rifle was still locked in the vice, and just make the level on the scope read level.

Doing it this way is nice, there is no change in windage at all when I have to hold over.

Both my AR15 and my Savage 93R17FV have been done like this.
