SBX + Folder + Krylon

Post by finn » Mon Nov 23, 2009 7:00 pm

SBX Barrel
SWR Spectre
Butler Creek Folder
Bushnell 1.25-4
I was going for the dump-on-newspaper rattle can rustoleum paint look.
Krylon is not very durable so i disassembled and prepped.
The barrel is far from free floated, but the accuracy was acceptable in my opinion so i left it supported by the stock.

The krylon is satin river rock by the way. It is a light khaki-ish grey and i like the subtle camouflage. Plus, it was all black before, so it looks slightly less 'evil' now.
Remington subsonic are 100% so far in this thing. The zero is 20m so poa=poi within 1cm out to about 50m. Love shooting at 1.25x with the dot on and both eyes open. This thing is fun.

Forgot the best part. This is how well it fits in a m249 barrel bag.

I like it. first impression is 'wow, this is hefty'. It weighs more than my 4-14x44 target scope and the 30mm tube gives massive adjustment range @ 0.1mil clicks (which most retailers get wrong). The glass is very clear and the eye relief is forgiving at 1.25x. I've never used any other low power variables so can't really do a proper comparison to the competition. Amazon has them cheap sometimes. Cheap for a 4200, that is. It is the most durable feeling scope i've ever laid hands on though, even compared to leopolds/nikons and the m14 unertl.

The bad:
The illuminated dot isn't great. level 1-6 are too close to tell apart and 7-10 are too dim to see at all in midday daylight if you were hoping to use it for faster acquisition.

Here's a proper review:
