Picked this up and got it mounted and bore sighted this morning.
Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but hopefully tomorrow.

They are good scopes and they stand behind their warranty.

My ex ( :( ) SIL had a 4-12x40 Crossfire scope on a Weatherby Vanguard in 30-06, and I always thought it was a great scope.
It held up to the recoil and I saw him shoot a pretty amazing 3 shot group at 200 yards with it.

So I'll bet that you'll really like the scope you have. :great:

We're waiting for that range report with bated breath... :D

Didn't get a lot of pictures, it was cold and windy,so we didn't get to do a lot of shooting.
We spent most of the time he was here sitting at the table having some beers and shooting the breeze.
Anyway, we set up a target at 100 yards
I was a little low to start and picked it up a bit, but like I said, it was cold and windy and hard to hold it still
The target waaaaaay out there.

The actual results
The larger holes are his Beretta carbine...CX4 Storm I think, with a red dot.

Anyway, I think I'm pretty close

Thanks guys
It should be close enough to knock off a coyote
One thing this rifle could use is a better trigger.
It's kinda stiff and a bit gritty.
I may try to polish it, or I might just get a LaRue, maybe a Timney.
I'm open to suggestions too :mrgreen:

I used JP Enterprises springs, the enhanced reliability set. Got my trigger pull down to a consistent 4.5 pounds for less than $20.

A bit of polishing, some paste wax finishing. I use automotive polishing compound, mostly because it's what I have, both the red and finer white. I also have a diamond dust polishing brick. Lots of easier ways to do it I'm certain, but I get by. Again, I use what I have and I don't have much in these regards. A jewelers file set, some very fine Silica carbide paper, and the above mentioned polishing compounds. The AR trigger I ended up with is fine for my ignorant fingers. I have NO idea what the pull is but it pulls easy enough, I don't know what constitutes grainy but mine seems to slip smoothly metal to metal, I do know what creepy is because I've been called that many times by my wife... :huh: :groan: :roflol:

That boat in the pics must be a wheat boat? I didn't think they allowed Nebraska to have any standing water, much less a river.... :ninja:

Wheat boat :roflol:
When we subdivided the section our rental down the road is attached to, we had to name the subdivision with the house on it. We named it "Wheat Beach" :funny:
That boat hasn't seen water for quite a while. :neutral:
We do have some water here and there, Lake McConaughy, Lake Minatare, as well as several small lakes in the Sandhills.
The river is ok for canoes, but a motorboat would be problematic.

Glad to see you got to try it out Husker!!
100 yards always looks a LOT further away in a picture for some reason...

What kind of ammo were you using?

The reason I ask is because I had three guys here at work buy an AR with a scope, mostly because they figured they should get one in case Obama got them banned somehow.
They also all bought 500 rounds of some cheap Colt ammo - that was made in Russia!!
All three guys had little respect for an AR as far as accuracy goes...

They asked me to sight their rifles in for them using their ammo at the range and I did - or at least tried to.
I took the 1st one out, and sing the cheap ammo - I was convinced the scope was defective!!
Put on another new scope and the same thing... OK, it has to be something else.

I tried some quality factory ammo and I got an 1-1/2 five shot group!!

That cheap ammo sucked - I could feel and tell the difference where some rounds were quieter and kicked less than the rest.
I had the same results with the other 2 AR's. I sighted them in with the "good stuff", and the cheap ammo sucked. So bad several rounds didn't even hit paper!!

I know you already know this - But that was my 1st experience with cheap ammo and I was surprised at how really bad it was... almost worthless.
I guess we get what you pay for!!!

And I knew those AR's were more accurate than that!!

And as far as triggers go - man some of those AR triggers are like sandpaper on velcro.
Midway had a sale on Timney triggers - around $175 which is about as cheap as it gets!! I don't know if it's still that price.
There's several other "copy-cat" brands around that are good too.
I put a Timney in my "target shooting" AR and that's the single best thing you can do to increase accuracy IMHO.

Glad to see your AR is working good!! :great:

I was just using PMC 55 gr FMJ plinking ammo.
I need to find a nice day, drag out my lead Sled and do a proper job of sighting it in.
As it stands, I would try it out to about 500 yards :mrgreen:
