i was just wondering if the 30mm tube would be better ie allowing more light in etc which in turn would give you a better sight picture rather than the 1" tube which would allow less light in but would give you the extra 4X power-which wouldnt be all that great if you werent getting enough light to get a good sight picture well thats what i assume anyways,
i could be wrong but thats why i'm here asking these questions :lol:

I've spoken to 4 members this week who are all waiting for this scope to arrive at their doors....LOL

I am very happy with mine, you can't beat it for the price and it'll hold up to the recoil.

Good purchases!

Glad to hear you're still happy with it, I think it has been your initial recommendation that has prompted a few of us to consider this scope. While my current setup won't really produce any recoil, it's good to know the scope can hold up to it.

Geez, looks like I'm no better than fifth in line... Last time I tried to order the 8-32x56, it was the SHOT show preventing restocking and me getting one, now it's other stupid CAF members... :D

So I guess I can't blame all of my missed shots on my scope now that everybody is going to be using the same one :? :lol:

The place I was planning to get MY ( :D ) 8-32x56AO is not expecting new stock until the end of April!

I wasn't planning to shoot FT with the scope, it is an "experiment": they sound awfully big and heavy and I don't usually shoot from a rest...might make an OK telescope if it's too heavy for me on the gun...

^ Thanks. I was looking there yesterday for somebody else, forgot to check this model out!

Are they a reliable dealer? I have to tell you, their descriptions for some other Leapers scopes are quite erroneous and misleading...would hate to have bought one of them based on their info...just asking...

Yes, Marstar has been around for a very long time. A few have already got their scopes and sidewheels from them. I wished they were not so far from here, lol.
