Mine should be here tomorrow but in the mean time are there any reviews on OT you can point me to? Would like to do a bit of reading on it from our experts.
 
Thanks!

You will not be disappointed.  I was blown away with how good it was when I got mine.  Definitely my favorite scope.

Now I've got to put together a sniper rifle to go under this hea scope, Chris you're costing me way too much money. But who's complaining, such toys are some of the best things life offers. Derek's a good man btw!

Love SWFA service, 2 days and the scope is already in my hands but it didn't come with a manual. Derrik, is there a link I can download from? Great selection by Derrik, my open item scope, for $100 less, looks and feels new!
 
First impressions, this is a very good looking scope but the turrets don't have the audible click my old 16X does, was this a design change? I kinda of prefer the old feel.
 
Feels solid and has very clear optics but I have yet to see a difference between it and my Nikon Buckmaster, even in low light. But I will put it through its paces today, when I get the chance to mount and shoot it through my LMT AR, and will report back.
 
Thanks again, in my book SWFA is tops in CS!!

We are currently working on writing up a manual for the 3-9x42 and the 10xHD. Once its done we will have it in a PDF format to send to everyone that wishes to receive it. The turrets are not quite as audible as the older fixed power scopes, but the clicks are much more defined. What i have found with the new turrets is the more you turn them, they do seem to become more audible.  Enjoy!

GCP also check out Kenton industries and the custom turrets they do if you want.  I am going to get a set done pretty soon to use as soon as I get my load data and range data set in stone.

How does it look to you?
 
I'll shoot my LMT tomorrow to see how the scope/rife will perform.
 
Thinking of putting this rifle under the 3x9SS, or even my 16X. Does anyone have personal experience on this Savage rifle?

Gents, after shooting it I must say that this is a very-very nice scope. But I do have an observation and a question, it seems that the crosshairs while on a paper target, due to paralex most likely, have the artifact of appearing double/out of focus at times, unless my eye is dead on them so I had to spend time reaquiring the target quite a few times is this normal? Or is it my eyes going from old to older? I properly focused the crosshairs but is there another setting I have missed?

This scope does not have any parallax issues at all.  Most likely the reticle is not focused to your eye.
 
The ocular focus (eye piece) is how you focus the reticle.  It is the only thing this focus does, it is not an image focus.
 
Unlock the lock ring and aim the scope at the sky (so your eye will not focus on an object) and turn the focus until the reticle is crisp and clear.  Lower it and rest your eye and repeat several times.  Then lock it down and you should be good to go.

Chris, I did exactly that but not many times so I'll repeat the process.
 
Thanks!
