Here's a LRTSi-3-12x44mm on Arfcom for $750. All 'round pretty good scopes.

Two more data points... the “demo” V4 4-16x50 can be had for $799 with illumination, a truly wonderful elevation turret with a killer zero stop, and capped windage. And 2nd, it will clear in Talley Low’s on Sporter profile M700’s (unless you have the one-piece PTG bolt as I mentioned) as well as a Kimber 8400 (the WSM version).

These truly are the good old days of optics; the bang for buck can be phenomenal, and I don’t doubt the other scopes mentioned here are killer. Straight shootin’!

Any chance anyone here has a pic of a 3-10 SHV mounted on a long action M70?

MontanaMan or Dirtfarmer may have. I have 4 rifles with SHV's, but they are higher magnification. Excellent scopes for the money. They compare very well with my higher priced NSX's..

I have a 3-15 LHT on my 8# 340 Weatherby. Holding up great.

This rifle has " killed" a dozen scopes including 2 Vari-X III 3.5-10s

I had a SHV 3-10 mounted on a Dakota 76 in 338 WM with Talley mounts. I had to get a long front base to get it to fit.

I'm seeing a trend in this thread towards LOW Japan built 3-12s. My 3-12x44 bushy lrhs claimed another bull last week. I wish they'd make another run of them with an even smaller windage turret.

IMHO, and IME, the words “Made in Japan” are a great, great thing to see on any mechanical and/or optical device.

I just ordered another 4-16x50 V4. “I think I’m done now”.... lol. 2021 was the year of the rifle scope upgrade, apparently. I invested in (5) of them.

This thread made me rethink how I was shuffling scopes around, however. I pulled the 3-10 SHV off the AR, and as serendipity would have it I had a set of M700 30mm Talley Low’s around (from when I discovered the PTG bolt clearance issue) so I pulled the old Leup 2.5-8 off my ultralight 7-08 Mountain Rifle and put the SHV on there. Great match for the rifle. I put the 4-16x44 V4 on the heavy AR. My intent is to eventually rebuild that upper (I built it) as a 6.5 Grendel, when there’s components around, and that scope will be great for that. In the meantime I’ll keep flinging 69-gn Sierra MK’s into the void.

You can do a lot worse than sticking to LOW sourced scopes.

It is too bad they discontinued the 3-12 Bushie. Was a lot of quality for the money, and I like the FFP G2H reticle for all around big game hunting. If anything, I think it was maybe just a bit ahead of it's time. It is a reliable dialing scope of sensible magnification range with a highly usable FFP, hunting oriented reticle. Seems as more and more people are getting equiped for longer range shooting, they are figuring out the virtues of those attributes.

I agree. I have three of them and can’t see getting rid of them anytime soon.

Yes, invested. They are an investment in my shooting future, from which I aspire to achieve a significant ROI, especially relative to “lesser” scopes. smile

What mechanically-accurate scopes do is reduce a major and confounding variable in the whole “precision shooting equation“ to close to nil. In other words, removing (or tremendously minimizing) mechanical error at the point of adjustment allows the other errors, both hardware and software, to be seen, so you can work on them.

I see this all the time with what I do for a living. I recently bought a high-precision small lathe (Hardinge HLV-H) that eliminates runout at the spindle to an amazing degree. With that removed, it’s much easier to see and chase down other forms of error that exist in the “lathe equation”.

So yes, I see it as an investment and will stick with that terminology.

Over 200 threads on Trump and Russian collusion. You were proven to be a moronic lying sack of schit. You fled when caught in all of your lies. lmao

Are you still on your fake disability scamming tax payers to support your lazy arse?



"For the record, collusion WAS shown to have occurred by the midterms. But I'm feeling really generous today and as I said, I want to give y'all something to hang your pinhats on"
