    Default should i get red or green?

    ordering another 4-16x40 illuminated Reticle scope from china.

    i have got one in red last year and stay with my talon at moment. quite happy with it since i know the minimum range is 10m. now i want to fit another one to my bam50.

    but at this time they have got green one available too. so i have to make a choice between the 2 colours. which one should i get?




    green is kind of relax











    red seems more serious













    forget about the 3-9x50 writing. this is 4-16x40 IR scope with windage and Mil-Dot .










    what is the AOE mean?

    I reckon the green appears to nice 'n bright. Should have a calming effect for your shots. :>

    What is that type of reticule called?
    I think it's alot better than the standard mil dot. Allows for windage if you not dialing.

    Might be totally wrong but I think it's called a ladder reticle, actually "made" for bow/crossbows.

    I notice alot of manufacturers offer different ret's with a specific model.
    Haven't seen any, but is it possible to get the ret's swapped in your scope?

    Yes it can be done, Premier Reticles do the Leupold scopes and there's another guy in USA that does various other makes.
    Do they do it here ? Donno, if so it will be Lynx, I know they (in SA) work on Lynx scopes and that's why my 10-50 will come from Lynx and not from NS, if it breaks they fix it here and there is also a much longer warranty on the Lynx version !

    If there's local backup, how come I can never find a Lynx in a local shop? Perhaps I'm just looking in the wrong shops.

    Not sure what Neilg's using, but Lewis's scope is really nice.

    Avion,
    I usa da Tasco Custom Shop, IMVHO better glass than the Lynx/NS, especially at the higher mag. I have never owned one of the 10-50's but Urabus has played with mine and his big Nikko, so he can make a better comparison.
    Anybody wanne buy it ? B)
