    Found a guy selling a US Optics scope that's configured in really rare and desirable way for a price I just couldn't pass up and he was willing to wait a bit while I put together the dinero.


    3.8-22x, ERGO objective parallax adj, 35mm tube, erek knob, christmas tree MOA reticle, MOA turrets.

    If you were to want to scope a .50BMG this would be just about the perfect scope. It's going to go on one of my 7mag rifles. Normally I'd buy new and order custom but this came exactly the way I want.

    You might have guessed I really like my USO scopes. It's all about toughness, clarity and turret tracking for me and they do those three things amazingly well. You pay to play though. Right now I'm at that phase of my life where I'm paring down the numbers and increasing quality and my kids are nearly out of the house so I don't have to pay so much for them and I can put a little more into my things.

    Nothing wrong with used if it gets the job done and is exactly what you want! Good for you!

    Couldn't believe the price and I've been wanting an ERGO model for a while. Turret parallax is neat but the longer sweep with the objective bell parallax control is more precise.

    I'm the opposite, prairie doggin' where you have to adjust constantly the obj bell parallax sux. Bag rest, left side turret parallax adjust and right hand shooting works great. 50yds- 600 yds you're cranking that sucker constantly. Different strokes.

    What Spamassasin is usually going to be shooting at won't moving and skittering about. But you have a point. What you are shooting at is going to dictate the scope you need.

    When they're a-comin' right at ya, ya can't reach up, twist hard, and lose sight of 'em. Besides, with my eyeballs, any precision gained on parallax is lost 2x on mirage ;)

    Well... I mean, they'd be a-comin' from over a kilometer away. I'll have a few extra seconds, heck even if they're shooting back. ;) The point is taken though. Turret parallax is faster but objective bell is more precise, especially if you're using it for coarse ranging.

    My targets are on the far hillside above the road.

    And it's here and even better than I thought. The turret feel is better than my ST-10 or my ER-25. It's enough smaller to fit properly in the safe too & it's comparatively light.

    Whatever happened with the other scope? U.S. Optics make it right yet?

    Yep. They did. They ended up replacing it, the one I got back has a different serial number than the box. I guess the turrets were farked up like I told them. The ER-25 is just too bloody big though for my safe. It's so long that the rifle barrel won't sit in the guides. I end up having to take a rifle out if that scope is going to be in there soooooo, I'm trading it for a Vortex Razor Gen II 4.5-27x56 and some goodies later today. I'm sure the Razor isn't going to be as tough but it's definitely a top shelf optic and should give years of service.

    It also frees up a SWFA 16x42 SS Mil/Mil scope. Time to put that on the block.
