WTB: higher power scope for long distance shooting

Recommended Posts

Im looking at buy a new scope. Something higher power than my current 4-12.

 

Maybe a 5-20 ish range.

 

Something that would be nice for long distance target shooting. Decent reticle. FFP would be great.

 

Fixed power would be ok as well.

 

Anyone have something they are considering selling?

 

 

Caleb.

I would check out samplelist.com. Its SWFAs used/demo section. Basically, folks can trade in their old optic and get store credit towards a new one. They look at every optic and ensure functionality then put it on the secondary site.

 

Theres a Vortex PST 6-24 FFP gen 1(MOA) on there now for $700. Its a B grade which means it has very slight wear marks.

Plus its a Vortex, VIP warranty!

I saw that one earlier. And Im madly in love with it, and I know its a fair price, but something in me wants to stay below $500. And I fully understand thats gonna be tough to do.

 

Just hoping that someone has an older scope or maybe a fixed power 15x or something that they just dont use or need anymore.

 

If nothing pops up in the next few months I will save up and get a vortex like that one.

Look at the SWFA SS series.

 

T-Rex in the sniper 101 videos goes into them a little bit. No frills, but glass is good and the tracking is spot on.

Is 6x40 adjustable zoom, w 1/8 MOA dot reticle good enough?
