Thanks. My budget would probably be $1500 or less. Unless the SHTF, it will be used to curb the local ground hog population. It will also see duty as a paper punch from time to time.cheaptrick wrote: What's your budget and how will it be deployed?
Great looking stick, BTW.

I am not familiar with Valdada but after reading about their optics, I was impressed with the 2-12 x 36 SPARTAN 35mm Tactical MP-8 Dot or CQB Reticule. How would this compare to the aforementioned Nightforce?Inkognito wrote: ....so I think something like an IOR Valdada 1.25-8x24 would be good.
I know I'm going to catch some heat for this, but I don't think Nightforce optics are as good as Valdada's. Valdada uses glass from the Schott Glasswerk in Germany and that is as good as it gets. Nightforce scopes are well built at a price point that makes them very attractive, but a comparable Valdada is usually in the same ballpark price wise, but they don't always have the same 'cool' features.Bimotabiker said:I am not familiar with Valdada but after reading about their optics, I was impressed with the 2-12 x 36 SPARTAN 35mm Tactical MP-8 Dot or CQB Reticule.

Why not? :wink:Inkognito said:I've got a S&B PMII 5-25x56 on my Sako bolt action. I personally would probably not ever mount it on a semi-auto.
