They are....... Awesome! The ER 25 and LR 17 are still great scopes. I don't really know what you are trying to say. Scopes are like ice cream. Everyone likes a different flavor. Just because scopes are older doesn't mean you can't use them or they aren't better than a new scope. Just ask all the Premier and Mark 4 guys. So because an ER 25 is older than a Vortex PST II do you think it is a lesser quality scope? I would take an ER 25 any day over most other brand new scopes.

Ive shot an old st10 next to lots of newer scopes. And yes, I can tell the difference in the glass, the turrets, the tracking, etc. There's a reason the USOs are expensive. A machined tube is more expensive than a casting. An American engineer is more expensive than a Chinese engineer.


Yea, I'll be keeping my st-10.

I just pre ordered a new FDN17x from US Optics. $2174 shipped with the first responder discount.

Well, since the thread is here......

One of the biggest complaints I hear about USO scopes, is the low magnification tunneling. Yup, they tunnel pretty bad below about 5x magnification.

That's a little of a bummer, sure. But I'll take it, considering how little I use 5x or less magnification, and that said tunneling results in an excellent FOV at the higher magnifications.

How many scopes have a better field of view at 17x? Those that do have a better high mag field of view, do they tunnel as well?

I find the bigger field of view at 17x more useful than the 4x tunneling is annoying.

Honestly, I'd prefer they just put a stop in the mag ring so that it can't go below 5x, then advertise the scope as a 5-17 x 50.

Yea!! Your reticle is all jacked up! It's probable mounted in there sideways...

And everybody knows you can't hit shit with all that tunneling below 4X magnification. And I also heard the glass is made in South fukdupistan!

Btw:

Damn that's a pretty setup!
