    Don't forget to add Tasco to your list of possibilities.

    For you guys that might be thinking about one of these, the specs are; 3.5X15X50 with 1/8 INCH TRUE (not m.o.a.) windage turret, 120 MIL elevation with 10 TRUE MOA per full turn, and true parallax correction. Equipped with the NP-R2 recital for true ballistic ranging and correction at 1/4 to full value at max range, at any power setting! Also has full optical correction on the first focal plane!

    Steiner makes awesome glass for Bino's, but the Scopes have quite a bit of catching up to do to even come close to the others. The Leupold MK-4 Series would be cheaper for basically the same performance, and the Leupold's can be customized like the others if your willing to spend the money and the time to send/take it in for refitting!

    Steiner scopes are pretty good. But IMHO some of their scopes really need a new design for the reticle (especially the prism scopes).

    But what would the purpose of this rifle be? At 11 lbs without accessories or scope, the DT SRS is way too heavy to be a practical hunting rifle. And as a tactical rifle, it would have a huge disadvantage going up against an enemy armed with semiauto rifles.

    Have you looked at any high end AR rifles in 6.5mm Creedmoor? You could get an awesome rifle in 6,5mm Creedmoor from either JP Enterprises or Wilson Combat for around $3,300, and save yourself $1,500. And you would have a gun with standard 20 round mag compatibility, instead of just 10 round mags.

    Or if you want a real value, trick out a Fulton Armory FAR-6.5 PVR with add-on options including a 24 inch Krieger Match barrel and a Geissele National Match trigger, and end up paying less than $2,500.

    Schmidt & Bender is the standard the other manufactures are trying to meet, with S&B reducing their pricing recently it is a great option, although the H59 adds some $$, I recommend a PMII

    Hands down get a Trijicon Accupoint. I own 3 of them in various magnification options, and they are hands down the best optics out there for AR-15 and AR-10 applications. Never need batteries and work in just about any lighting conditions.
    You spend a lot of money on a rifle, and then you're going to spend just a few bucks on the optics you need to utilize it correctly?
    Man take a lesson from my Grandfather: "Son, You NEVER quit paying for cheap."

    NF ATACR 5-25
    Awesome glass. Not quite as heavy as the vortex 4-27.
    You can't go wrong with either choice though

    Not all Nightforce are 1/8 MOA windage turrets.



    My choice was the Gen II Razor ( about 6 months ago) and I stand by that choice today. It is a truly amazing scope. I did a lot of research before hand and was really hoping that the ATACR would be my choice but most said, other than the weight issue, the Razor was hard to beat especially for the price. That being said, I am sure you will love the ATACR. :)

    As they say... Ounces equal pain...

    But then again, don't they say pain is weakness leaving the body? :confused:

    My rifles are all bolt action, hunting rifles. My seven rifles scopes start at the low end with a Zeiss Conquest (for .22LR) and progress up through Zeiss HD5 to Zeiss Victory, or they are one of two, Leica ER4's. Over the past 50+ years, I have pwned many brands and types of scopes. These are the culmination of 50 years of hunting and shooting.

    Watch this, it might help. I went with the Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50 FFP since I built my rifle for both hunting and precision target shooting; like many here I can't afford one for each discipline. Got it from Optics Planet for $782 when they had a 12% off coupon and couldn't be happier
