    You're supposed to spend at least half the cost of the rifle on the optic is the rule. :big grin:

    Nice glass.

    I dont think I would ever pay that much for a scope except maybe if I were to get a .50 rifle, or if I ever got an M1 Garand sniper

    This is of particular interest to us, as these highly respected German optics manufacturers took a keen interest in I.O.R. Carl Zeiss in particular played a key role in modernizing I.O.R. with the latest equipment and techniques. A second plant was opened, and by 1978 I.O.R. had become one of the globe's largest suppliers of military optics. In 1989, I.O.R. entered the fields of opto-electronics and thermovision.

    But an old name and a European address do not guarantee quality optics. What we wanted to know, was how good their optics are today and, more importantly, how they stack up against the competition - both quality of their optics, and their mechanical components.

    If Carl Zeiss is involved you more than likely can't go wrong.
