I agree with rvaducks said about finding a used NightForce.

Since it has been re-surged...

Sportman's Guide has some of the Counter Sniper scopes in their catalog. Interesting looking. Says "save up to $2,308" and "US Gov't Issue". They have 3 models with varying 3-color illuminated mil dot reticles.

I don't think light will be an issue with these.

3-25x56 $689.97

2-16x44 $499.97

3-9x42 $269.97

Says made in USA as well.

Interesting and seem to be built to take some punishment. Just putting it out there.

OK, what do you think of the Sheperd P-3 scope? I bought one and put it on my M-14, and the one shot zero does work, was surprised, but really does work, but was just curious what you thought about it.I like the way it is set up better than the MIL Dot ones.

Thank you!!!


CounterSniper Optics® 4X-16X 50mm Aircraft Aluminum Crusader Gunsight

Counter Sniper Optics [Online Catalog - 4/16-50 Weapon Mountable Optical Gunsights]
I recently used one of these scopes on a 338 Lapua Magnum rifle. Set up for long range, reach out and touch someone/target fun. Loved the scope and the rifle. Nice to have the focus knob on the side as well.

Default bad scopes

my friend just dropped off his 300 winmag and his new counter sniper 3-25x56 for me to put on and sight in.i do this all the time for my friends.i mount the scope.the 1st thing i find wrong is that the rings wont lay flush to the base because of the bolt that you tighten the mounts with hits and wont go down into the grove.so i dremel the weaver base to make the groves big enough.that worked but shouldnt have had to be done.next i bore sight it and it dosent have enough adjustment to even bore sight it.i know you can shim it but this is ridicoulus on a supposedly quality tactical scope that our military supposedly uses.which i highly doubt but i could be wrong with our current administration.next i look through the scope at my 100yd target to find that the scope is hazy,so i assume this is a focal adjustment.i adjusted it every way possible and it is just a hazy scope.then i shot it.after the first shot there was a black floater in the scope.after the second shot it cleared up.i would never buy one of these scopes.i would buy a tasco 1st and that will never happen.i think these scopes are a scam.in counter snipers defense it is possible that this is just a bad scope but if this is an example of all of there scopes they are junk.i hate junk scopes

Hi Jason,

When mounting scopes check to see that Weaver style rings are used on Weaver style bases. Mixing Weaver style and Picatinny style tends to cause problems, as they are similar but not the same. There are a couple of styles of Pic ring, one of them has a rounded cross bar. Sounds like this is what you encountered. Fitting it without properly milling it is next to futile.

Also, rings should always be lapped and properly torqued. These are the two main reasons a scope will be cloudy. If the scope is cloudy out of the box (before mounting) there is a problem. But if it looks clear until it is mounted, then goes cloudy after mounting, it needs lapping and torquing.

If a scope is mounted and suffers some "flex" in the process it is common for minute pieces of glue, paint, etc to "pop free" and become "floaters". The best way to see them is to look through the objective end. It acts like a microscope and will show any loose particles.

You used a dremal on scope mounts? OMG I can't believe you admitted to that. Sounds to me like you have the wrong mounts or rings.
