Ok guys. I saw a guy on a discovery channel special about SEALs using one and a Guy in the Movie "Tears of the Sun" Sniper in the tree, I saw One at the GUn show a while back and thats the only way I know the name of it.
It was going for about $400.00
Can anyone give me a quick run down on how it compares to say an ACOG, CQ/T. Is it a Quality Glass optic or just another Knock off.
Any history or experiance would help. I found their web page a couple weeks ago seems nice But......................
Thanks

I JUST PICKED ONE UP (USED)BUT IN PERFECT CONDITION OFF EBAY WITH THE HELP OF ANOTHER MENBER (THANKS CRAIG). SO FAR I HAVE BEEN VERY HAPPY WITH IT.OPTICS ARE SUPER CLEAR LIGHT TRANSMISSION IS GREAT.I HAVE SHOOT SEVERAL DAYS THAT WERE DARK AND OVERCAST WITH NO TROUBLE.THE I.R. WORKS VERY WELL,SHOWING THE RETICLE WITHOUT A LOT OF BLEEDOVER OFF THE LINES.THE SCOPE IS MOUNTED ON THE CARRY HANDLE OF A COLT MATCH TARGET WITH A 20" BARREL,THE HEIGHT IS COMFORTABLE AND GROUPINGS WERE VERY TIGHT ONCE I GOT IT ZEROED IN.JUST NEED MORE TIME TO SHOOT.

Hey Mac5, was that you that I sent the epay link, oh, about 6 mo. back? I'm glad to hear it is working for you. Been very happy with mine. You need to remember to keep the battery cap screwed down pretty good to keep the reticle from slightly flickering during recoil. Once you screw it down once, you're good to go. I may me selling mine if I go to a TA-31F.....but every time I leave the range I see no reason to spend and extra $600 for the ACOG. The Elite IR is built like a tank.

Hey Mac, that was me. Glad you got the scope and are pleased with it. I may sell mine if I get a work bonus and try to find a TA-31F (!). Problem is, I have a hard time justifying it. Cheers, Craig

THE SCOPE IS THE MARKSMAN ELITE IR FROM C.M.O. (COMBAT MILITARY OPTICS)ITS A COMPACT 4X SCOPE. VERY GOOD OPTICS,THEY CLAIM THAT THE LIGHT TRANSMISSION IS SO GOOD YOU CAN SHOT WITH A GOOD MOON LIGHT(HAVEN'T TRIED THAT ONE YET) COMPANY HAS BEEN OUT OF STOCK FOR A WHILE. SOMEBODY SAID DUE TO MILITARY ORDERS.
