That seems like a good price. Those that have used them, how do you like them?

I had a 4-12 Vortex Diamondback on one of my FT pcp's a few years back. Vortex glass is pretty good for a lower priced optic. I imagine the 4-16 is at least as good.
I wouldn't hesitate putting one on a MZ. And I hear their warranty is real good.

This is a fantastic deal. The glass on the Diamondback HP line is way better than the regular Diamondbacks. And that’s not knocking the regular diamondbacks either as they are also pretty good.

I bought on last time Midway had this sale...... It was a $500+ scope when it came out... You won't be disappointed...

I bought this exact scope to put on my smokeless Encore ML years back. I liked it so much that I bought anther one to put on my Remington .270 Win Mountain rifle for deer hunting.
Thanks GM54-120 for posting the info on this sale. I have been searching the past couple of years trying to find another one. I just ordered another one. Not sure what I will put it on just yet. Could not pass up that price. It is a better price then I paid for the other two previously. It really is a terrific scope for the money.

I have the 3-12x42 and for the money its nice. The HP line are very close to a similar size Viper but its a 1" tube. The BDC on mine does not really look like the pic on Midway. Its not busy at all. It looks a little like the VMR reticle so if you expecting dot, i dont think that is what you will be getting.

Yes, that particular scope actually has small hashmarks as opposed to the dots in the ad. I like the hash marks better than the dots. It only has 3 marks below and 3 marks horizontally. It is not a bizzy at all when you looking thru it. One of the reasons I like it so much.

The HP line unlike the regular DBs has more eye relief and better glass. Same coating ect as the Viper line. At $200 there just isnt that much out there with as many features. Occasionally Midway gets in the Viper HS 2.5-10x44 for around $250. It also has a reasonable weight and a nice eye relief. The HS in 4-16x44 sometimes pops up for about $300....Only Midway seems to get those scopes at that sale price.

The Sightron S-TACs are down to a more reasonable price now. Starting at under $350 its a really nice scope. Good turrets but rather tall and built tough. I would really like to see the windage turret size made much smaller and elevation shortened a little. Plus exposed on elevation only. To get the exposed with zero stop you have to step up to the FFP model for over $500.

I actually liked the S-TAC 4-20 better than my 3-16. The LGS would not match the pricing i found but would on the 3-16.

Scope arrived today. Box had a couple of transport creases in it but everything inside the box looks good. At that price wish I could have purchased a couple of more. Wife would probably kill me. We are sending our son off to start college at Maryland University next week and we don't qualify for any assistance. I feel the reins tightening on my purchasing power for the next four years at least.:mad:
Thanks again for the heads up GM54-120

My Burris Veracity 3-15 "Blem" arrived yesterday! Just took it out and holy crap that has some nice glass! The reticle is also very cool! It's going to be great for long-range work on my Encore/Brux. I will mount it up tonight and hopefully shoot tomorrow as well since it's going to be beautiful out and not 95 degrees finally. I want to compare it at low light also just to see how it does against my other scopes. Also its sold as a "Blem", I can find nothing on the scope itself. No marks at all. The only blem I can see is the edge of the box is slightly dented. Part of me thinks this "blem" is a sales pitch just to get more of them out there.

Yes they are VERY nice. Just a step below a XTR-II. The biggest difference is the 30mm tube instead of a 34mm. Love that reticle too.

That is exactly what all the reviews said. Cant find a blemish on the actual scope. Did it come with all the accessories too?..I think its supposed to have caps and a lens shade?
