KONUSPOT ON THE SURVIVAL QUARTERLY MAGAZINE
I'm one of those weird people who likes to sling lead long distances and
try to make something go "ding". Most of my rifles are capable of
extreme accuracy but in order to match their capabilities with my eyes, I
need a sighting system that works. Iron is out, scopes are in. Over the
years, I have spent a lot of money on glass and learned some lessons.
The main lesson was that there is no substitute for a quality scope, one
that costs nearly as uch as or even more that the rifle. This lesson is
hard to learn especially when you just slaped down 6 bills for a good
rifle. The lesson is much easier to accept when your cheap scope loses a
crosshair, theelevation knob stops working or the thing fills with
mist. My dad always says that he is too poor to buy nanything but the
best. I agree.
About 6 months ago, I was looking for a replacemtne
scope for one of my riles and I came across a brand....Konus of
Italy..."Never heard of them" I thought. I fixed that with a web
What I learned about their optics rightly deserves a full
page but I'll just give your the hig pints. I ended up with a Konuspro
M30 6.5-25x44mm. It features a 30mm tube, locking tactical tureet
swithc. Parallax correction down to 10 yards, 1/8 MOA adjustments,
illuminated reticle (blue and red") as well as a built in bubble anti
canting system. Of course it is waterproof and fogproof.
thourgh the scope is one of the best I've seen. This thing is easily as
bright and sharp as one of my $1,000 plus scopes. It also has more
features and it can be found with a street price fo just over $300.
Incredible value in an incredible scope. I give it a 9 out of 10.
of the essential parts of any long distance shooting is a good spotting
scope. My Celestron spotting scope had given good servide but it was
fuzzy at high magnifications and tended to need a lot of light due tothe
optical system it employs. I looked to Konus.
I ended up with a Konuspot-70 20x-60x. I've seen this baby on the net for as little as $124.95 (B&H photo).
is deligtful socpe, sharp and cear like the other Konus optics and
sports a sommoth zoom and great stat. The downside is that the tripod is
a piece of crap. It's basically a cehap camera tripod with no elevation
or windage control beyond the tripod control The scope has interal
elevation adjustments via a large know on the side but the adjustment is
minimal and since the tripod is junk the scope is dancing al around
whenever you try to adjust elevation using scope controls. I tossed that
POS and use the tripod formy Celestron. All in all I give the scope a
solid 7 and the tripod a place in the junk room.
When all is said and
done, there is a greatvalue and performance in the Konus units, I've
workd with and their name is becoming sysnonymous with quality.
If you need new optics, think konus.
