I need to pickup one of the 3-18 IOR's.
What's the latest deal?

Last I remember was the scope, seekins rings, caps and torque wrenches for $1495 right?

Can you please post the full specs?

How much elevation in one turn of the knob?
How much elevation travel is available total?
Illuminated first focal plane Mp8 reticle?

Randall,

Contact Scott over at Liberty Optics. Tell him I sent you. You'll be more than taken care of. BTW, check out the Snipers' Hide scope as another option. Freakin' sweeeeeeet!

Is there a new sniper's hide 3-18x42?
That's what I'm looking to get.
BTW, look where this thread was posted. ;)

No illuminaton, I don't think.

This First Focal Plane was first made in late 2007 as a special request. It is similar to our standard 3-18 x 42 but the reticule is a Modified MP-8 dot with an extra 5 mils at the bottom. The scope features 1cm click value (.1 mils) and it has 22 milradians of adjustment, side focus and sunshade. As usual, a set of HD style 35mm rings of your choice are included in the price.

Still a few questions, but I am close...

How many mils per rotation of the knob?
Is there a zero stop, or an easy way to keep from getting lost in the knob?
I see some red on the windage markings.
Got any pictures from the shooters perspective of what the markings look like over there?
How do you zero the knobs?
I have an older IOR with covered knobs where you loosen two screws and turn the scale.

Here you go, sir, from top to bottom

10 mils per rotation (a good point to put on my website)

No zero stop, but from your 100 yard zero you have less than two turns until you top out (a poor man's "doubleturn" knob).

No, but I will get them for you. From the windage zero, half the knob's marking are in red and half in white (Red = right and White = left)

Shoot, zero, them loosen four 2mm hex head screws located around the top edge of the cap, slip your turret, retighten.

This system is much more user friendly.

10 mils on the windage as well?

My load only needs 9.7 mils to 1000yds. :)
This is a very good thing as I should never need to turn the knob even a full turn.

I believe it is either 5.5, 6, or 7.5 mils per turn on the windage, but I will verify. It is not 10.

The exact number is not really important.
The markings are what I am most interested in.
I assume it's marked counting up and counting down from zero so if I were to dial 2 mils of wind, it would be obvious which way I am dialing?

Yes, from your zero, the scale read 0,1,2 mils + in either direction.
