Anyone have any feedback on this scope?
www.atncorp.com/DayTimeHuntingSportShootingScopes/RifleScopes/ATN12-36X80


i haven't heard much about this company or its scopes, but doing a typical 50bmg search it popped up.

thanks,

I know this...$900.00 dollars is alot of money for a scope.

There have been many reports of failure when used on .50bmg rifles (over at Biggerhammer)

For the money, you'd be better off finding a good used/new Leupold or NXS.

For hit or miss performance, you could try the SuperSnipers. At least it's only 300.00 new and you stand of 50% chance of it holding up.

US Optics SN3 SN9 are the best I've used, but those really ARE expensive.

ATN = Another Terrible Nightmare.

I've had 2 ATN products and I was very dissapointed in both.

ATN, 100 bucks would be over priced for that terrible hubble of a scope.


900 bucks would buy a very nice Leupold 6.5-20x or possibly the 8.5-25x, little bit more for the MKIV variety with M1 knobs and Mildots. 1200 dollars would get a person into the Nightforce scopes which are even nicer, more adjustment range and better optics with the addition of a lit reticle.


Don't touch the ATN, especially at that price.

I will defend their 5x33 LU at the 180.00 range but I would never buy anything from them at that price range. I have had good results with a $1500 Gen 2 plus NV from them. Its not a PVS-14 but I didn't pay 4k either.

Lupey or Nightforce.
