Re: Falcon Scopes

another +1 for Matt i got my falcon from him. he was back ordered and offered to either cancel the order or keep it with him and he would waive shipping costs. stand up customer service and he doesn't mind answering tons of questions.

No worries, just as I was not saying anything negative about Matt. Simply stating that when given a choice I will always give a hide supporter my business first.

Sometimes the toughest decision is which Hide guy to go to....

Re: Falcon Scopes

RWS is a notch above top notch. He delt with my changing of my order a couple times. Will go to him for more purchases when the money comes my way.

Re: Falcon Scopes

Mil-Mil means a miliradian-based reticle (such as mil-dot), with the knob adjustments also in a miliradian-based unit (usually .1 mils).

Much more handy than having non-matching units on you reticle and knobs (such as the common mil-dot w/ 1/4 MOA knob combo in many 'tactical' scopes).

I like their SLR reticle -- mildot with .5 mil hashes -- and I like the solid posts, kind of help "find" the center of the scope, esp. at low mag or in lower light (since no illum).

Re: Falcon Scopes

I have the Skeletal Mildot Reticle with 1/4 MOA turrets.

I would much rather have the SLR and Mil/Mil. I ordered the GAP Reticle and Mil EREK and windage on my SN-3.

I would have saved a round on a 660 yard Unknown Distance target yesterday if my knobs matched the reticle. Since they didn't, I put two in the dirt instead of just one.

Re: Falcon Scopes

I like the SLR/Enhanced mil dot reticule, but the ML16 is good as well. To me the Enhanced mil dot is faster to determine how many mils you are and easier/faster to keep track if you are using a mil or 1/2 mil to aim with (Since full mils are dots), but the ML16 is capable of a more fine aiming point since the full mils are fine crosshairs instead of dots.

The Mil/Mil thing simply means having your reticule hold over/off marks the same as the adjustments on the turrets. Simple that if the reticule is in mils, and you see through the scope you are .5 mils high, you can simply dial .5 mils up on the knob. Instead of many scopes that have a mil style reticule but have 1/4 MOA adjustments so you have to convert between them when making adjustments.

With the falcon scopes you have the option of having 0.1 mil per click adjustments or 1/4 MOA adjustments.

SO a Mil/Mil scope has mil scale reticule and 0.1 mil per click adjustments.

Re: Falcon Scopes

I have the SLR with Mil/Mil and it's great. Matches the ret and turrets on my Heritage, so it's a cheap way to have my 22LR trainer match my centerfire.

Re: Falcon Scopes

I have heard some bad things about Falcon and their scopes, can anyone comment on this? I was considering getting one for a AR...
Thanks.

Re: Falcon Scopes

Yes, please be more specific. I've never had any problems at all and @ $380 or so I consider it to be an excellent value for features available.

Re: Falcon Scopes

There have been some problems with falcon scopes, my 10x42 for example had a parallax issue, but the customer service from RWS and some of the other vendors and Falcon themselves has been stellar. If you do run into a problem it will be handled quickly and professionally.
