    4-16x42 scope

    Ok this is a Chinese made scope, so for all of you not interested you can click away now
    BUT it is actually reasonably good quality.

    It is clear all the way to max 16x...actually clearer than my Vanguard Endeavor 5-20x scope.

    Parallax is very good to my eyes and makes the image clear from 25yds to 450yds but at 500yds the image starts losing its clarity.
    It has held zero on my 25-06 for the last 2 years.

    Point of impact does not change as you move through the magnification range
    HOWEVER POI does move about 2" @100yds when the parallax focus is adjusted.

    I have adjusted for elevation to 500yds but have not performed a tracking box test so can't comment fully on the tracking accuracy...probably best to 'set and forget' at your cartridges MPBR (although I adjusted in the field).

    No lens scratches or cleaning rub marks and no marks on tube.

    Asking $125

    What! nobody wants this Alpha glass......Chinesium, tier 1 quality scope...unbelievable.

    Look the only 'problem' with this scope is a 2" POI when parallax is changed so here's what you do:

    - put it on your .22 Mag and set the parallax to 125yds and don't adjust it = Perfect
    - put it on your .223 or .243 and set parallax to 250yds and you will have a clear and accurate scope.

    Anyway I'm dropping the price to $100...it's a bargain!
    (buy now and you get a Ginzo2000 knife set for absolutely free + $10 p&p )
