It looks very nice, Ed.

Have you ever thought of making a variant with other BDCs, especially 7.62?

Ed, glad they are selling well. I cannot say enough good things about my 1x4.

About 1,000. I don't think there is a cheaper 1-6 out there.

very interesting. I am in the market for a variable power. Mostly looking at the 1-4s but the 1-6 would be optimal. Would like to use if for my personal weapon because I shoot that the most, however plan on taking it on the next deployment. Waiting for more people to post reviews on dependability and durability before I drop that kind of cash site unseen. However this is VERY promising. I love the HS reticle and the idea of the stedia based ranging system.

Been out to the range a couple of times with my new GRSC 1-6x.
I own both the 1-4x and the new 1-6x scopes.

The quality of the glass and the extra magnification was well worth the higher price I paid for the 1-6x.
My 1-4x scope is still an excellent scope for the money, but I think I'll sell it and buy another 1-6x soon.

Keep up the good work.

Specs are in the table on page 1.

I just noticed on Zulu-77's pics that the turret caps look different than any I have seen on this scope before. Have they been updated to include a battery compartment?

Yep, the caps have been updated to include battery storage.

I was thinking the same thing. You could buy 2 to 3 really good scopes for that much rather than just having one.

This looks like a very promising scope. I have one of your early Valdada collaborations with the mil marks as opposed to the BDC reticle used in your current offerings. I'm curious about one thing, you state that these were designed with the military in mind yet everything is in yards, why not go with meters? Or was this simple a choice made so that you could appeal to the widest audience, ie US civies, as well?

The 1-6x magnification, coupled with the reticle design does sound like a very promising do it all, combat optic. I know that I've been frustrated by the fixed 3.4x Elcan that we use in the Canadian Forces, especially since our reticle does not have a BDC reticle.

I suppose that depends completely on how you define "really good."

$1,000 for an optic that has 6x magnification range is quite reasonable in my opinion. Are there other 1-6x optics on the market at <$1k?

Yeah like 2 or 3 really cool Counter Sniper military over run scopes (actual value $12,000.00)......

Most upper tier 1-4 scopes go for around a grand, some for a good chunk more, Eds 1-6 is unique, the glass and eye box are excellent , it's a true 1x at the low end and it comes with one of the most useable and easy to grasp reticles on the market.

1k is more then reasonable for a well built scope.

I received my GRSC on Thursday and installed it that night. Went to range Friday afternoon, was pretty sunny here in TX, the reticule was easily visible on '8' in sun light. Took about 20 rounds to get the scope dialed in, easily held 2'' groups at 100 yards with Hornaday 75 gr training ammo. At 200 yards kept the groups just under 4''. This was from a bench, but not using any sort of rest, just my bail out bag.

I would easily recommend this scope.

For the price point, quick growing reputation (very good) and overall specs of this optic, it'll be very tough to beat in the all around low-variable tactical application. The only scope i can see coming close to or meeting the CRS is SWFA's 1-6x, but they have an inferior combat/CQB reticle in my opinion. I'm turned off by the mil hash reticle in a low variable CQB scope. I've got a BCM Middy 5.56 that i'd love to put through the ringer with Ed's scope. And i also just put together a custom 6.8 scp to run in Open class in 3 gun comps around the area. I'd love to test out the reticle against the 6.8 cartridge, and see what kind of results i can gather.

Ed, what is your inventory looking like for the 1-6x at the moment.

Thanks,
PK

I would like to make a comment on this scope. Ed was nice enough to send me a demo to test out and I love it. Now, I am not anyone special or anything like that, but I was an Army sniper and have been in combat having to cope with multiple optics on multiple rifles. I have been searching high and low for a good "overall" optic that I can multi-task with. Mil dots are nice, very nice to have in a hide sight as a dedicated sniper system, but when hell breaks loose it is nice to have something that you don't have to grab a slide rule or start doing the worm method in your head to range targets on the fly in the middle of a patrol with. That is what Ed's reticle is built for. In something like this I do NOT want to be spinning target turrets and reading and comparing mils to target size. I want to engage the target and kill it.

I do own the 1-4X and while the reticle for me was right on the money I did have issues with the T lock and it keeping its zero, but the 1-6X is such a huge improvement over the 1-4X mechanically. It is built well and is a solid piece of kit. I was able to take my rifle out with this scope mounted, get it zeroed and run it through its paces. I did multiple quick engagement drills from different distances to include "I'm up, he sees me, I'm down" drills, or fire team rushes, and the optic was great, very quick to engage targets with, crystal clear, and with a generous eye box.

All of my drills were conducted in full gear (body armor, helmet, full combat load of ammunition, etc.) on varying terrain ranging from rocky areas, hills, trees, and depressions. The reticle was at no time any kind of hindrance, and actually led my eye nicely to the center mass position. I was able to quickly and accurately figure range using the reticle as well. Using something like this not only takes knowledge and familiarity of the provided marks, but also a healthy dose of common sense. Once you are used to it the range estimation comes fast and natural. The reticle was easy to see in bright sunlight and picked up on target very fast as said before.

I also had the chance to use this scope at night. I was unable to run it with NOD's as I just ran out of time, but I was able, while hunting on my property in Texas to quickly and accurately illuminate a fox with my surefire, range the animal, and dispatch it quickly with a single shot through the neck. The shot was about 75 yards and illuminated reticles on 6X was used. I wish I had had a switch view on it as it does take a bit more of thought power and dexterity than what I would like to change power, but with the addition of a switch view that should be easily done.

My one regret with this scope was the fact that I had to send it back to Ed when I was done. I do plan on purchasing one with a higher and cantilever bobro mount as the one that was provided was a little low for me and didn't quite take it out far enough unless I mounted it out far. Luckily my rail on my rifle extends the entire length of the rifle with no gap. Ed, this is definitely a keeper. Thank you for letting me try it out.

Based on the reviews, I'm going to just save up for the 1-6 X24. Had intended to jump on the 1-4 X 24 but it really sounds like the newer 1-6 is the way to go. Ya, it's a $1K+ pop but it's a damn nice piece of kit.

Or was this simple a choice made so that you could appeal to the widest audience, ie US civies, as well?

The 1-6x magnification, coupled with the reticle design does sound like a very promising do it all, combat optic. I know that I've been frustrated by the fixed 3.4x Elcan that we use in the Canadian Forces, especially since our reticle does not have a BDC reticle.


I made this scope for the American Warfighter and as Americans we still tend to think in inches, feet and yards. I think the attempt to globalize the Americans to the Metric Mind has failed.

Ed, I went on active duty in the US Army Infantry in 1973 and all our known distance ranges then were in Meters. Our maps had 1 kilometer grid squares. I understand that most civilian ranges are still measured in yards, but the Military has switched to Meters as their preferred unit of measurement. I think your answer was kind of snarky considering these facts. I own a 1-4x24 CRS and am happy with it. But to jump on someone with a real question in this manner, makes me question if I should get another GRSC scope.

Exactly my point DVCAPI, the U.S. military has calibrated the sights on all of their small arms in metres since the introduction of the M-14 in '57. For a modern example I'll use the ACOG, they're calibrated in metres, probably because their main customer base are military. That is why I asked the question.

I have a feeling that the choice was made in order to appeal to the broadest civilian audience.

Still a very nice looking and versatile optic.

The only thing at this point holding me back from the. We 1-6 is the two year limited warranty. There are other scopes around this price point that are great quality and offer a lifetime warranty. Any thoughts on this?
