    I own two Osprey scopes, a 6-24X50 and a 10-40X50. I also have the optional sun shades.

    So far I have noticed.
    There unusually heavy
    Target style turrets that can be zero'd,
    if u turn the windage or elevation a full turn and then back to where it was there is no change in POI
    Variable zoom does not change POI
    The IR setting go dim enough to be used at night with out blinding you
    BSA, Tasco, Barska, NcStar, and AIM can't even come close to the clarity of these target style scopes at Max zoom
    The side parallax ajustment is very smooth and can be fine tuned at Max zoom as close as 30 yards and out to infinity
    The rings that come with the scope suck and are very tall.
    Flip up lens covers fit a lil lose, I raped the scope with black electrical tape to make fit snug
    At min zoom there great in low light

    Bolt rifles keep dime size groups at 100yards with these scopes

    Looks like ya got a pretty good scope there. Hope it holds up well over time. Don't know anything about the Osprey lineup or their costs, but it looks very much like my Bushnell Banner 4-16x40A/O with I/R, which I like very much and have one mounted on a Savage Axis 22LR, but the Osprey looks much more target/sniper style with it's adjustment turrets. What do those solid lines at bottom of sight picture do, if scope already has holdover marks?

    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.:cool:
