Great scope if it's in your budget. Out of my price range for the higher power models like that one.

If your a Bushy Elite fan you may want to hold off for a bit. Rumor has it that they will be introducing 6X zoom models at SHOT this year. See what the Z6 Swaro has started!!!

I found a demo model on ebay last year for 330 dollars and snatched it up. Since then I have been searching for more of those deals, and can't find it. Its currently on my 204 encore. Excellent scope.

Hey BC, do you find this scope to have too much power when cranked up to 26 X. The scope I handled had good optics but when I zoomed up 26x , it wasn’t clear. I guess checking it in the store wasn’t the best place either. What do you think about the side parallax adjustment. Works well ? I’ll give you $340.00 for yours...

I don't have a side parallax. Wish it did. Mine is 6-24. Yours is probably the newer ones. Cranked up, its just as clear as my monarch or Leupold at 20X. At full power, knock that parrallax down to min.

I guess it’s a new model with the 30 mm tube. Check the link I posted for a gander. I'll check the scope again with your suggestion. Thanks...

Looks very nice. I wouldn't mind having it. Sorry, I have no experience with that exact scope.

Finally ordered this scope. I’m looking forward to using it this spring. Should be a hummer for my Tikka varmint chambered in the 260 Rem...
