Vortex or VX3



Which vortex do you like/recommend that have 30 mm tubes.


Go over to the vortex optics website and pick. I have the PST 1-4 24 which is a fantastic optic. I use that on my 223 for close shots and it's sub Moa on my rifle at 50 yards. For accurate shots over 50. Go with something more. I also have a 4-16 and a 6-24. The PST line is more expensive, so look at the other models.

No complaints with both of mine.

You'd be better off with low rings on a FV-SR btw.

Glad to hear you like the APT scopes.

Also how much of a difference are we talking about from low to medium height rings , like a 1/4" inch, if thats it ill probably live with it, as i have a extra set of warne 30mm medium height rings sitting around, and them being 30mm's and reading this thread has got me really thinking about the mueller apt.

I gotcha. I purchased the Seekins rail 2.5 inches. The two holes boyds drilled did not fit the seekins. It was off by .3 inches. I over drilled the hole some and had to drill out a place for the nut on the inside because the seekins screw was not long enough. I put some blue loc tite on the nut to prevent any movement

Check out Primary Arms. I've had their 4-16 and their 3-14 FFP. I have also put both of them on a 308 AR and they hold zero just fine. The FFP tracks true too I did a 100 yard box test on it and the turrets and Mil Dots matched perfectly. Great scopes for under 250.

I have to say that I have both the APV 4.5-14 and the crossfire 4-12 and between the two the crossfire is head and shoulders above the mueller. The eyebox on the mueller didn't have as much room as the vortex. The mueller will be on its way back to midway this week.

I stopped in Dicks the other day (Yes, I know, fuck them) but they had none in the store but apparently around 100 available for order. So I should have mine in a weak.

Anyone have an idea how much I can expect to pay to have my Boyd's stock cut down 1" or 1-1/2"? I'd like it cut to within 1/4" of the rear sling swivel, but I haven't measured exactly how far that is. The LOP is uncomfortably long for both my wife and I and it will certainly be way too long for my daughter.

I have my whole build coming in this next week! Base gun, stock, scope, rings... even a few mags. However... My D.I.P. trigger guard/bottom metal kit is on the infamous "back order". Those of you who ordered through Diversified, were your parts in stock or backordered? If backordered, how long was the wait?

BTW... delirious1... Saw your pics. Loved the gun so much I'm building one for myself. Thanks!!

I'll admit. I copied another fine members post and look. I love the pepper stock. I was flored how quiet it was at the range yesterday. Like others have said, it should be stupid quiet when my spectre II suppressor arrives. Fun to shoot. It liked the match ELEY and federal champion match. The Winchester match did good too.

Saw the pics of the pepper stock and had to have it. Just waiting for it to ship, I think it will go well with my MVP Predator. I sold my Tacticool stock to a member here. Now I need to decide if I want to keep the Muelller APT or go with a lighter option.

BTW... delirious1... Saw your pics. Loved the gun so much I'm building one for myself. Thanks!!



I'll admit. I copied another fine members post and look. I love the pepper stock. I was flored how quiet it was at the range yesterday. Like others have said, it should be stupid quiet when my spectre II suppressor arrives. Fun to shoot. It liked the match ELEY and federal champion match. The Winchester match did good too.


Saw the pics of the pepper stock and had to have it. Just waiting for it to ship, I think it will go well with my MVP Predator. I sold my Tacticool stock to a member here. Now I need to decide if I want to keep the Muelller APT or go with a lighter option.



Just curious , how come get rid of the mueller apt? Im just about to pull the trigger on that same scope. as it looks like a good compromise and price point with midways coupon codes right now make it a good deal, can get 2 new 20rd mags and the scope for $170 shipped

Would a Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40 be too much for one of these? I was waiting on a 2-7 crossfire but they are back ordered. Gun would mostly be a range gun with the occasional bunny control trip.

It's what I have on mine. Comes with a slip in the box on where to zero for the hold overs to be accurate with .22. Haven't had a chance to test it yet, but should be right.

Here's my opinion on big scopes. I was going to go with a Vortex crossfire II 4-18 44. What I got sent was a Vortex PST 6-24 50mm FFP. A purchase I was going to make at a later date. It worked out after price negotiation, I could keep it. So it left me with a dilemma. Should I put this scope on my FV-SR or put it on my 308. So I ended up putting that scope on my 308 and took off the vortex viper PST 4-16 50mm FFP and I put it on my FV-SR. Clearly an expensive scope and overkill. But what I've found is that the better the optic, the larger the zoom and objective, the more pleasure you get out of a rifle. anything will work, it's just how much pleasure do you want out of it. For me, at 50 yards, I can shoot the eyes out of squirrel vs aiming for the torso.

when I go on to my next purchase, a good 300 win mag, I'll purchase the most optic I can get for around 300 bucks for the FV-Sr and do some rearranging. But as for now, the 4-16 50 FFP is awesome!

The APT is very nice scope, the main reason is weight. I'm going from a tacticool bench rest gun, to a lighter hunting gun. The Nikon 3x9 rimfire is almost a pound lighter.

Looking at picking up a vortex crossfire 4-12 40mm AO soon and would like to get rid of the tri rail on my TRR-SR. Right now I'm thinking of one of the DNZ mounts, anyone recommend then or have a better suggestion?

the EGW base is the correct one for the FV-SR/ m,ark II savage. Replace the tri rail with the EGW one.

As a follow up, my D.I.P. parts have finally shipped. PLUS... It appears they have more of the bottom metal kits IN STOCK. And the wait continues.... But it won't be long now!

Any have issues with moving the bolt forward? Sometimes it will stick, and I have to press on the back of the bolt body itself. Other times rounds hang up going into the chamber. I was hoping it would work in over time but it hasn't (I do only have about 300 rounds through it).

On my old Walmart mark II rounds would hang up all the time because the magazine was loose. As long as I put pressure on the mag when I cycle the bolt no hang ups. My current trr-sr does not have that problem.

Any way to tighten up how the rifle holds the mags?

Sweet, is that the mueller apt scope? I just picked up my fv-sr and am saving funds for the same stock and looking at the mueller scope. Do you like it, anything bad about it?

thanks
