Dude, take a breath!

Default Counter Sniper Scopes

I own the C.S. 3-9x42 and have also used the 10-40x56 which I sold to a friend. These are actually very well built scopes using German Schott glass. Of course, you should have someone who knows what they are doing mount the scopes...The ones with four knobs have a paralax adjustment, and, yes the third knob is reticle switch - which is actually pretty cool and useful in low light situations. You can't beat this scope for the money.

If you research on CS optics on the precision rifle forums you will find that these optics are indeed sub par. There are many other optics in the price range that are building solid reputations in the community:

Vortex

Falcon Menace

WoTac (wonderoptics).

WAAAAY too much gimmickry for me.. Plus, their advertising is full of BS, has anyone ever heard of "24 step vacuum Bertrillium-Zantitium™ multicoating"?

The fourth knob is for illuminating the reticle. And yes, it's necessary. I am a 19 year, MOS qualified Army Sniper. I've used just about every scope out there. While I am partial to the M3a Leupold, I own a Counter Sniper 4-16X - 50mm. It has proven itself to be rugged and reliable. While I admit, I don't need/like illuminated reticles, the fact is, when any scope has one, there needs to be an on/off switch. Doesn't that make sense?

After using USO scopes in the field, you are pleased with that ridiculous reticle and the MOA/Mil configuration on the CS? wow.....
