Can confirm, I got my shipping notification a few hours ago. I bought mine on the last day of the Black Friday sale also.


I bought a used Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4 to hold me over due to this one being back ordered, on the plus side I am curious to see how they stack up to each other!
 
I nice little range report would be highly appreciated!!! Howdy

Not so bad for a new scope design that sold out in record time. Heck I have been waiting over 4 months for a completion shooting mat from MidwayUSA.  Its still not here. They market it in the monthly sale flier every month. Quality takes time.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Go order a GAP-10, when you can sell them faster than you can make them, it works that way. 😉

Great analogy. Tac-ops comes to mind as well.

I'm guessing that there is no chance that these will be going on sale again any time soon?
The salt mount either?

I ordered a 1-6xHD on black friday. Shipping wasnt terribly fast but the scope is badass!

I ordered a couple 5-20 illums on taxday. Wont see em for months. Suxxxx. I have no doubt they will be everything i hoped for.

I will order a 3-15x and also this 1-4x on black friday. That puts me at 8 SS optics, add my eotech to the mix and i do believe my optics buyin days are well behind me.

Hey all, 

new to the forums here, and just had a question about this scope. I'm currently on number 3 - meaning that I've had to return two of them already. Every one of my scopes - and my current one is no different - has had significant reticle cant (not level with the turrets) by several degrees, and it's driving me nuts! My current model's cant has been the least extreme so far, but it still throws the bubble in my level all the way to the left...is that normal? I absolutely love the reticle design on this scope (which is why I keep hoping my next one will be "good to go"), but with all the back and forth shipping I've paid, I could've bought a vortex, which was my second choice. Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks!

How did you verify the cant? Not trying to question you, just wondering because that's a bunch and nobody else had been complaining.
If it is tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

I have ONE scope which is pretty close to level between the turrets and the reticle and it's a SS 3-9x. 

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

I leveled out my gun, locked it down, checked that the mount itself was square to the gun, and plumb-lined the optic. After that, I didn't even have to put a level on the turrets because I could visually see that something was pretty off. 

Good to hear that no one else has been complaining - maybe I just have had bad luck...

Boy do I feel foolish! I just started everything all over from square one, and I got it to all line up great. Still a little bit of can't, but to the point where I can live with it.

I was using a new mount this time around, and while everything appeared level, there was a flaw in the seating that was exaggerating the cant. Switched back to one of my old ones and it mitigated the problem. Excited to hit the range and see this scope in action!

If you stack feeler gauges between the flat spot on the bottom of the scope, and the top of mount, or the rail it turns out a lot closer than leveling the top of the turrets. Of course verify with a plumb line.
