I just stumbled upon the Sniper Central site and an older review of a Falcon Optic spoke highly of one of its scopes. Have any of you had any experience with this brand of scopes? The scope is FFP which is very desriable to me. Thanks for any comments.
I have one of their 4-14ffp scopes from one of the earliest batches; no problems to date with holding zero, click accuracy, etc. The knobs a bit mushy, but comparing them to a $2700 Premiere isn't reasonable, either. On the other hand, I also picked up the new 3-9ffp Super Sniper for a .22 trainer, and it has much nicer clicks/knobs. At some point a bit of something or other dislodged internally, so there's a hazy spec of dust or somesuch at the edge of the image, but nothing that makes it inoperable. For the price, I think they're pretty much impossible to beat given the ffp, mil knobs, and mil reticle. It's seen use on an AR15 and a couple of M14s...
