Was thinking about picking one of these up in 3-9X40. Anyone ever had any experience with them? I've got a TA-31 already and love it but was wondering if anyone had put one of these through it's trials. Thanks in advance.

I had one on a precision AR for a while. It was not as easy to shoot accurately with it as with a cross hair reticle. Hold overs were also difficult since the reticle is thick under the aiming point. They are nice scopes and would work well in some situations. They are not, however, anything like a TA31. Best. Watch-Six

Thanks the primary intent for this is going to be on top a Model 10P Savage .308 for hunting use with an expected longest shot of up to 400yds. Think this will do what I'm looking for? Thanks

Just curious, but why do you say that? I've got a TA31 and have done some pretty extensive research on the Accupoints so I'm familiar with the differences between them.

BTW, I have been thinking about doing the same thing the OP is. I like my TA31 but would prefer an optic with more eye relief and, a more precise reticle and at least as much magnification if not more.

As I understand it the most difficult thing about mounting them is the eye relief but that may not be an issue with the 3x9 model. IMHO they are very nice scopes...especially for the money.

IIRC, Hokie loves his 3x9 amber dot Accupoint for deer hunting...if you look at that long thread, I think he mentions it in there.

I've got an Accupoint in 1.25x4 (thanks Mike!)...I think it's a great scope, and actually managed to get out to the range and get is sighted in yesterday...we FINALLY had a sub 90 degree day hehe.

In higher magnification, though, I might be tempted to get a traditional cross hair style scope. For the price of the Accupoint, you've got a lot of good choices in the traditional scope arena. If you think you need some illumination, there are still plenty of choices. for a couple more $$, those Burris XTR scopes look pretty cool. Mike can help ya there too!

I *think* the 3x9 accupoints will style require some forward movement for proper eye relief.

Yes, I recall the thread.

I guess that depends on what kind of accuracy you're trying to achieve.

Well, ya can't beat an illuminated reticule that will never need batteries.

Yes, they do. If I ever take the leap and get one, it will be mounted with a Larue SPR mount.
