    Trijicon TARS

    Been waiting for more info on this scope for a while.

    http://www.trijicon.com/na_en/produc...hp?pid=TARS102

    you think nightforces are heavy, this thing is 47 ounces/51 with sunshade and a bit like the proposed Leupold MK8 pricing at $4k USD

    It's designed to be very very tough.

    I'm not interested as the weight would make my rifle balance terribly, and from what I saw their reticle selection wasn't great.



    There is also a Kahles Tactical (crap features) and a Steiner one (heavy and giant but otherwise ok) which I haven't seen discussed here (they've been around for a while)

    Another option if that sort of thing gets you going: SHOT Show: New 1-8x28mm & Hunting Scopes from U.S. Optics Daily Bulletin

    Another forum member wasnt too impressed when I asked if his USO was a bushnell

    the 1-8's are so last year, 1-6 is where it's at this year.


    1-8's were all GIANT, some interesting looking 1-6 scopes coming out though, and they don't weigh a kilogram which is nice

    AR rifle setup I guess?
    1 power for those tacticool room clearing events.
    8 power for precision shooting to the other side of the Korengal Valley.

    They're for semi-autos really, for 3-gun or IPSC rifle style events, LEO/Military uses, etc. Hunting as well - 1x for when you find a mob of goats at 30 meters, 8x and turrets for when you spot some 500 meters away

    Ok I can see that sort of,I used to struggle with 9x and even the 14 I have now is hard enough to see at distance.

    Magnification is personal I guess... I find 12x heaps for out to 1km, 8x is more than enough to shoot a deer (or person since that's sort of what they're for) at 400-500 meters.

    8x at 500 meters is like using iron sights at 62.5 meters...
