I just received my SN-4 in the mail today. Awesome glass! I do however have a question. At the 1x magnification, why do I have trouble using it with both eyes open like I would an Aimpoint? The reticle (circle/chevron) is very blurry. The 1.5 x scope on my Steyr Aug has no such problem.

Are you looking at the target or the reticle?
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 5:22:25 PM EDT
I'm looking at the target. It seems like the glass is distorting the image if I focus on the target instead of the reticle.

Yes, I had it mounted to my rifle.

Yes, it's adjusted (for me with glasses on). Everything is crystal clear when I aim at targets that are far away. Both the reticle and target are even fairly clear at 1x when I focus on the reticle at cqb distances. However, I've been trained to look at the target, not the reticle and when I do that, the reticle becomes a blur.

I just tried ( I wear glasses), and I didn't experience what you've just described. The reticle is clear while focusing on the target at 1X. Have you tried contacting John or Wendell at USOptics?

Well, it's good to know that it should work at 1x I'll call the tommorrow. Thanks.

I'm a friggin' idiot. Turns out, it was the focus. Since everything was clear except for cqb use, I thought the scope was already in focus. Turns out, a little adjustment made it in focus for long and short distance crystal clear. Feel free to reply with "See?"

Just a side note, it seems like the posi-lock mount is a little low for my taste. I really have to cock my head down to get a good sight picture. I would probably be better served with a higher mount. Arms 22 or Larue perhaps.

I think you've been a victim of parallax.

Don't feel bad...I got a Super Sniper used on the EE, and it had BC scope cover already on it.

I played with it a bit, then posted I didn't think the image quality was very good. A couple of days later, I decided to play with it some more, and clean the lenses really good. I took the BC scope covers off, only to find a nice shiny focus knob on the eye end of the scope.

I shot Pats carbine at night with the PVS-14 mounted behind the M2. I had a mag in my right rear pocket, and attempted to load the rifle right handed for convenience....the result? A quick smack on the back of the head and a whistling voice: "What, you think just cause it's dark I can't see you fuckin' up?" I never attempted to load a mag right handed again!

"Don't fuck up!"











Grant, off topic, but that round cooking off must have been a real eye opener. Good thing you showed discipline for even the most mundane task.


On topic, I now find myself rearranging budgets to allow a scope like this into my "arsenal".

I don't know if this is normal or not, but it seems like the focus for 1x is slightly different for the focus at 4x. I have to adjust the focus 1/8 of a turn depending on the magnification.

never doubted your adherance to the laser - just a good note for some of our other listeners (especially the bump fire crowd...)

Hmm I would not have expected that from M855 but...



Agree. Most shooters believe that if the weapon is safe then they are GTG (not true).

Having the safety on still does not nullify Rule 2 and what happened just reinforces this. I'm glad it all turned out okay.

As long Grant has hands he can still pack my orders so he's still GTG without a foot or two...

On the subject at hand, I'm finding myself more and more attracted to variable low power(1-4x) scopes these days. If I can find one I really like I may even skip the magnified EOTech.
