So, earlier WINXP and JFComfort and I were going back and forth on CS optics. We have all heard a lot of bad press on Counter Sniper Optics. I personally have had great success with CS for 10yrs running. So of course I'm running my suck to JFComfort about how people bad mouth stuff without trying it out, bla, bla, bla. You know "stupid stuff".

So I go to the range and all is going well. I'm putting down 3/4moa at 300yds and feeling pretty good about the pics I'm going to upload when I get back. You know, to prove my point. Then the bottom falls out of it. WTF?!

Now I have to eat my words. Sorry WIN and JF - you guys were right. BUT, before I bad mouth CS optics, I have to give them a chance to respond and do the right thing, you know, due diligence and all.

So look at these miserable pics and have a laugh on me.

I'll keep you guys posted on the CS progress to resolution.

Getting all setup


Everything's just fine


Holding 3/4moa at 300yds


AND THEN IT HAPPENED - THE BOTTOM FELL RIGHT OUT OF IT. EVERYTHING TURNED TO SH!T. I actually had to place this target sideways like this because I wasn't even hitting paper anymore.

Well damn.
But I have to say that if you got ten years out of not just one but TWO CS scopes you got way, way, way more results than I have ever heard of from anybody that's had one. You may be the luckiest guy on the planet.

UPDATE:

Good news, CS Optics said I'm covered for 10yrs (their standard warranty against defective optics) as long as I didn't intentionaly destroy the scope. As you guys can see in the photos the scope is in perfect condition. So I'm sending it in after the holiday weekend.

Its all good, I'm honestly surprised it has lasted you 10 years. I have to eat my words to a certain extent too. I really thought a .300 WM would bust it on the first few rounds.
hahahaha - I'm going to order a SN3 TPAL. I have more years of experience with that scope than any, so I know it to be solid.

A part of me thinks that even when CS fixes or replaces that 4-16X42 I should put it on my long range 5.56. I hate to be gun shy - I should put the replacement back on and go back out there. I've never shy'd away from anything before. But I don't want to keep playing this game of break - return - break.

Put it back on to be able to go shooting and order a NF, S&B or a USO and call it a day. Man that last target looks like it got hit by a shotgun hehehe.

hahahahahahahahahaha LMAO!! That's what I said - it looks like someone went after it with 00-buck!

It was frustrating, I'd adjust it for 1 minute and it would move 2 feet. There was just no dialing it in after it snapped.

And yeah for sure, I'm looking at S&B and USO - I want a FFP. I like NF and have used them alot, but I have much more experience w/USO. And I haven't kept up with the updates to the NF line of tac scopes.

Give Jason Kyle a Call over there at USO. He was extremely helpful when I was getting mine together!

I gotta say, i admire your honesty. Most men would NEVER post that up showing exactly how wrong they were. You Sir, get a +1 in my book. (and a -10 for that last string of shooting HAHAHA) :)

Well I did it. I pulled the trigger on a new USO, the 5-25X58 T-Pal. I can't wait!

Big thanks to JFC's boy Jason Kyle! He's the man over at USO.

Damn, every time someone says they are getting a new USO I just wanna poke their eyes out. (just kidding...)

;-)

The Wife and I went to the gun club over the 4th weekend and took along my AR and 700. She was hitting paper plates with irons at 100 yds. like it was nuthin' so being able to spend a few bucks on more 5.56 ammo will be a breeze. Now all I have to do is teach her to clean the damned thing.

When I broke out the 700 She wasn't much interested. "Aw, c'mon baby...it's not that bad". Still no-go. I'll get her behind the 700 eventually and when She starts complaining that the 3x9 Leupy isn't powerful enough for Her to see..... BAM! I start selling her on the idea of a new scope. Maybe not a USO but something a step or two up from my 3x9-40 Leupy.

Hahahaha, I got my wife her own range bag. I let her fill it with anything she wanted (even if I disagreed), I bought her expensive hearing protection and pink tinted eye pro also. She actually likes cleaning weapons now! She doesn't like it alot, but she doesn't mind it. As long as I don't look over her shoulder and tell her how to do it hahahahahaha :lol: :lol:

And on the rifle thing if she wants to shoot 5.56 then you get more time on the 700 - it's win/win.

Way to sieze the moment and go for the sale on the scope! ;) +1
