Scope Display CC

Postby JohnC on Wed 11 Jul, 2012 1:27 pm

I hope you all don't mind some constructive criticism about your Leupold Scopes on display in the case. :cool:

While my Dad and I were in the store shopping for a scope for his Tactical Remington 700, the Leupold Scopes in the display case were very difficult to impossible to ID.

You can't tell what power the scopes are unless they have the specs on the gold ring, or they're close to the edge where you can see the power adjustment.

May I recommend you guys either set the scopes on their boxes with the prices and specs showing on the front, or make a small flash card with specs and price in front of each scope?

Also, in the Leupold scopes, I didn't see the selection I'd like. It seemed like everything in there only went up to a 14x.

I was looking for a Leupold Mark 4 ER/T 8.5-25x50mm (30mm) M5 with either an H58 reticle or TMR. To decide on what reticle, I wanted to look through them to see if my poor eye sight could actually read the marks on the H58. :camo:

Anyway, my Dad picked up a new Leupold scope and I got some Barrett 30mm ZG ultra high scope rings for my 50 BMG. So it still went well and we like the store! :cheer: :headbang:

Visited Outpost again. Leupold and some other scopes were still hard to ID. :|

I suggest putting each scope on top its box with the specs side to the front so folks can see what magnifacaion, reticle, etc., the scopes have. :cheer:

Also, a little more varaity on the Leupold scopes would be awesome. Most I seen stopped at 14x while I don't want anything less than 25x so I can see way out there! :cool:

These are all scopes I'd consider for my 50 BMG:

Probably will settle for this with H58 reticle if I can see it. If not, probably the TMR: http://www.leupold.com/tactical/scopes/ ... m-30mm-m5/

I emailed them about a product one time,
to this day, I have never heard back from them.

People think I'm paranoid because I own guns.
If I own guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant"
is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist ".

Well, guess I'll be forced to go online to get myself Leupold with the specs I want. :|

Thanks for letting me know. :cheer:
