Alright guys, you have waited long enough, and I can't take the question anymore, "Will USO ever make the MST-100 again?"

YES! We will make them again....but there are a few things that I need to make clear to everyone;

1. This is the biggest, so I will do this as #1, the price is going to be $2750. You may already say, hell they’re already $2500, yes, and they were for several years. This scope is so laborious to make, and material costs have gone up significantly since 1999. Labor rates have also climbed quite a bit, so $2750 is the price.

2. We are starting on them immediately, but it will take about 6 months to make all of the parts, so don't think you will see your scope before the 1st of the year.

3. We are going to require a 50% deposit, 1st come, first serve.

4. You can have a custom serial number, but we will have to make sure it hasn't been used in the past before we agree to the number. If not, the scopes will start at number 3500 and go up from there.

5. They will be marked like the have been in the past, "USMC SNIPER" engraved on the turret along with the serial number.

6. There will be NO MST-150's!

7. Please contact the office for a quote/order form, or if you would like to use a credit card. 714-582-1956, or email to [email protected].

I think that is about it, let me know if you have any questions, please be patient as I do not receive email notification for PM's here on the Hide anymore.
Thanks,
John III

Is there a time limit in which to get the deposit in?

Shawn,
Still undecided on the mounts, looking for feedback as well.

Emilio,
No time limit, but don't get caught having to wait. Like I said above, the sooner you get the deposit in, the sooner you will get your scope.

Re: ***USO MST-100's, LAST RUN!!!***

It looks like I will be into my pockets pretty deep on this, I just called McMillan yesterday to have them do a change to my HTG I have on order. USO, I will need the mounts as well. I am going to attempt a full spec build! $$$$ but I don't think anything else will scratch the itch.

Re: ***USO MST-100's, LAST RUN!!!***

I ordered mine a few weeks ago with the mount/rings together. I might even be able to pay for it all if I stop buying stuff that says Heckler & Koch on it.

    ok before i take the plunge on this I have a few questions.

    Im going to be doing and xm-3 type rifle. everything will be the same save for the barrel brand which will be switched to bartlein 2.99 bore like LL's gladius.

    will this scope/ring/base combo have enough elevation to get me to 1k with the 18.5 inch barrel?

    Can we eliminate Sniper on the side but leave the USMC intact. I spent my time as a rifleman/0311.

    This brings and interesting question. Will these be cammed for M852, M118LR or something else? Or can we specify?

    i really wish the the scope tube design was kept the same with some mil m40 knobs.
    I really like how low that scope can get on the 700


    Lastly do you guys know if this scope with its intended ring/base combo will have issues with an oversized bolt handle.

    im contemplating keeping the barrel and action in spec but switching to the a1-3 stock but adding a bolt release and oversized knob. so i might scrap my xm-3 build

    One UP grade , I would like , and I think it would be Possible , is , say from 400 or 500 , have a detent/click for the 50yds split , so you could say dial , 750 yds for instance .
    NO extra marks or numbers need be ou ton it to up set any pureists .

    You guys have to remember the PURPOSE of these scopes and WHY many of us want them. It's for a SPEC build. There are BETTER choices for optics out there at this price. I don't want BETTER. I want THE SAME as the rifle I was issued and drug across the world and back. I don't want it to work SIMILAR to the rifle I was trained on. I want it to be the SAME.

    If I didn't I would just order a SN-3 with whatever options I wanted.

    The only thing I requested was a custom serial, but since it was probably already taken (according to Jeff) I just told them to send me whatever.
