Interesting.....

The initial purchase will be 575 scopes at $1749 each for a total initial delivery order of $1,006,250. The government may purchase up to a maximum of 7500 scopes on this contract over the five-year period the contract is in effect. Work will be performed in Winchester, Va.

This contract was competitively procured using full and open competition. The Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico, Va., is the contracting activity (M67854-05-D-1043).

Premiere has been revampinging the old Unertls for some time and from all accounts the Marines are real happy with their work.

They earned and deserve this contract.

But everyone here says that the bargain stuff, like Tacpoints, are just as good.........

If I had to guess, they are probably Leupold optics....

If I had to guess it will be German glass.

Even though Premier specializes in Leupold?

That would be odd.

US Optics had the contract to repair and recondition the 10x USMC for both the M40A1/A3 and the 10x USMC .50 for the SASR. From my experience, their work was questionable.

I'm curious about this new scope from Premier. It's about time for sure...the Marine Corps has been talking about getting a new scope to replace the aging Unertls for years. But, they always seemed to get bogged down looking for the perfect, vaporware (to coin a phrase) scope. Good on Premier and SysCom for finally getting something in the works.

You mean that you can't really make a rifle scope last for 50 years of frequent use?

Nightforce scopes

Nice looking stuff!

I'm betting they will be Leupolds of some sort with the Gen 2 Mil Dot reticle. Leupold is all that Premier will work on, so it stands to reason.

Nothing on Premier's website though.
