Fixed versus variable is a matter of simplicity and durability. Bradd shooterX308 3/26/2003 5:25:43 PM Patrick319: what is the thing with low-power fixed scopes–nothing over 10x? Are these better or something? is it because of the field of view? Patrick A lot of it has to do with marketability; really, for most shooting conditions, 10X is enough. Part of it is a practical application issue, truthfully. Weaver has the V16T target/VarmintAR-15 scope(which is really a pretty goodAR-15 scopefor the price), and Leupold sells 24X scopes, and Weaver sells a great 36X scope, but these are mostly for benchresters. Personally, I do a lot of groundhog hunting, and I find anything over 12X makes it hard to find the target inside of 200 yards or so due to the reduced field of view.

7/5/2008 4:09:00 PM Yes. The ML3′s are also most commonly 4MOA dots as well. I still like the idea of the higher end ML3, with the better circuitry, but the difference of price can buy a very large number of batteries (to where after a lifetime of use, theAimpoint Comp ML2 is still slightly cheaper) TheRealNCLivingBrit

3/28/2009 9:58:28 PM Carry or for position shooting? Turner or good copy/original of 1905(?) leather rifle sling will do well. Might need assistance of experienced user to get rifle sling set up, as I know the mil. rifle sling can be a pain to set up right if not sure how to. Carry sling, can get by with nylon military to just haul around on shoulder (for fairly short distance. Need padding for long hike.) Muskyjerk 3/28/2009 10:16:16 PM how tall are you? I am 6’7″ and I am on my last set of holes when wearing winter clothes.. I have heard good things about the all weather but I all ready have 2 leather ones that dont show signs of breaking down. 50″ but like I said I am a bigger guy getting bigger every year so I would get the longer one now if I could do it again. http://www.turnersling.com/miva/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=TS&Product_Code=NMSRAWS&Category_Code=NSRS I also run it on a M1 and a M1A http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=4268.0 . nhsport 3/29/2009 11:05:13 PM Competition sling. I am actually set but don’t remember what I got . This is for a guy at my club who is not real tall (5’8″?) but has wide shoulders and pretty big but stubbie arms. I told him I thought I had gotten a 54″ so that should work for him. My setup (as directed by some old time shooters) has the foward end rolled up with the front hook passing through the rifle sling and getting hooked a second time on this end that is rolled 2 or three times rsk

The lack of a chrome lined barrel on the SA guns is an added bonus too. They can be forged all day long and still not overcome the inherent weakness in the chinese design. I will say that yes I would prefer forged over cast but, that is only one consideration. I still think the OP will get the short end if he makes the trade but, YMMV. sw1217 B44T [Team Member]

Received this from a Threeper I trust implicitly regarding LaRue Tactical quality control problems and service issues. He included a copy of a series of emails back and forth beginning in December of last year. Here’s his latest to me:

Mike,

I’d like to warn people about buying scope mounts from LaRue Tactical since you may well not get the one you need, and then they won’t do anything about it. When you spend $250.00 for a scope mount, it damn well be the one you needed, especially when you called and spoke to their rep before ordering.

If you could warn your readers, I think it would be a great service to them. Perhaps ask David to do the same. The story is in the below email stream.

The picture of my rife, scope mount and scope fitted and bore-sighted attached. As you can see, it has to go all the way up to the turret to get a decent eye relief. Also, I had to crank it all the way up to get it bore-sighted for 100 yards, leaving no more elevation for greater distances.

Before anyone buys a quick disconnect sight from LaRue Tactical, they better know exactly what they need to get because the reps at LaRue have no idea.

The shame is that I have previously purchased two other mounts for ACOGS for my other rifles from them. Still they have no interest in rectifying this situation.

Thanks,

WarriorClass

My son has been collecting the components to build himself a 7.62 NATO sniper platform on an Armalite receiver much like the one pictured. He was thinking, if memory serves me correctly, of getting a LaRue Tactical mount like the one pictured. I will discourage him from doing so. –
