    Stealth scopes and suppressors.

    Ok, so I was looking at one of these this morning.

    The Rifle itself I have little doubt about.

    The scope and can are both branded "Stealth".

    If they work well, fair enough.

    If the scope shakes to bits, or baffles fly off the can into the wild blue yonder, I'd be interested to know.

    Opinions?

    The scopes are 200 new. They are what they are. Reasonable quality for the price. SFP mill dot reticle with moa turrets from memory. Had one on a package rifle I bought, just ended up wanting something nicer

    No personal experience with this brand b7t have had similar in the past as parts of packages.

    Save your hard earned coin, wait for something to show up here (or the yellow site), 1500 will get you a second hand rifle, dpt can and leupold scope if you wait long enough

    I have the rifle as a family rifle in .243 and I like it. A lot, actually.

    But....I have had that exact scope in a package and it fogged severely, wouldn't hold zero and was unusable at or above 9x zoom.

    Generally the scopes in these packages are junk, or very close to it. They are usually paired with extra junk rings and bases also.

    Buy the rifle and get a quality used scope and a dpt

    Hmm. Thanks, maybe I'll just go look for the bare rifle and have it chopped to 16.5 in. (I miss the compact size of my AR 15)
