Does anyone have any experience w/ their daytime optics? Specifically the 5X33, 2-6, or 3-9s. Thanks.

I have the 2-6 X 40 and the 4-12 X 50. They are very larger and heavy...when comparing them to a Luppie.
Things I like:
Gather light well
Reticle increases in size ans you magnification increases
Nice glass
Has BDC for .223 out to 500m

Things I don't like:
Has a yellow hue
Very long
Very heavy
You'll never fine scope covers for it

I had the 4-12 on my 16" and it was 5" shorter than the barrel. If I ever missed the target I could lean forward and hit it with the scope. It feels very rugged (must be made of cast iron).
Contact me for more specificinfo if you like.

Remember zunrj5, you get what you pay for. The atn scopes are no exeption. I know this because I have owned that 5X33 model. You are better off buying quality the first time, rather than having to learn from your potentially spendy mistakes.

I was looking for scope covers for the BIG ONE.
Can't seem to find one that will fit 2.731" objective.
It is a decent scope for bench or target shooting. I would hate to carry this thing around.

I have an ATN 5x33L and for the price and purpose, like it very much. Re. the covers, last year, I picked up a used spotting scope with a very large Objective, which was missing the covers. Just a thought.. I found that the plastic top from a kitchenware container was a perfect fit. When desperate, improvise. Of course prowling Wal-mart & K-Mart with a ruler was a little suspicious looking...
