I went to Turners to see if they had the new sale ad out and they didnt. I needed a scope for M1A plinkage so I picked up this one for $130. http://www.nikkostirling.com/Content/PlatinumNighteater/1_Inch.htm

Anyone know what this third knob is and how it works? The instructions dont even mention it lol. It's got yardage markings on it.

It might be the parallax adjustment.

Ok.. thanks.. that makes sense.

Looked at the instructions again and it mentions the parallax adjustment may be on the "objective, eye bell, or saddle area", depending on the model of scope.

I hate when companies include generic instructions.

Brand new scope and you've already scratched it - Have fun plinking.

That isn't a scratch; it is a mark of distinguishing character.

You think that's a scratch? Try and get those rings that go MORE than half way around the tube off your scope.
That's a gouge, when you have to get those pr8cks off.

I'd say the main problem is the SCOPE itself. C'mon dude- treat yer' M1A right!

heh i know i know.. it's cheapy.. but I can count on my fingers the number of times I've actually taken this thing out to shoot. Didnt want to spend hundreds on a scope since I probably wouldnt use it that much :)

Then why buy the gun/scope at all?

Saddle parallax adjustment from 10m to infinity
