View Full Version : New Millett LRS-1 scope?

02-26-2008, 4:19 AM
I just saw an ad for this:
Millett LRS-1 (http://www.millettsights.com/controller.php/catalog/long_range_scope)

more info (http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=6&f=3&t=234423)
Best price from a quick google search - $440 (http://www.bigrivertactical.com/catalog/item/4193480/5396194.htm) no idea about the company.

Anyone have any up close experience or looks at this thing? I love the TRS-1 I have on my Savage, but this looks even cooler. Plus it comes WITH some pretty beefy looking rings to mount it (35mm tube).

It looks like they made a bigger (6-25x56mm, 35mm tube) version of the TRS-1 (4-16x50mm, 30mm tube) with a few changes (1/4 MOA clicks instead of the 1/8 MOA clicks on the TRS-1) and fixes (markers for full turns of the elevation knob). I am intrigued, but would love to hear a report. Maybe somebody handled one at the SHOT show?

These are not readily available yet, but initial reports are vary favorable.

Made in Red China.

Pay more for something else.

Depends on what you're trying to do. If my life depended on it or I had the cash to blow on the best, I would buy US Optics made right here in CA with whatever crazy options you can dream up ("put a mil-dot reticle on a hubble telescope you say? sure we can do that!"). If I was a purchasing agent for some gov agency and needed volume, I would buy Schmidt and Bender or Leupold. Problem is, I ain't. I'm on a budget and alot of what I buy is made in some low wage country.

Macro-economic considerations aside though, I already have a TRS-1 and love it. They may be made in Millett's factory in China (like everything these days), but the quality is great and Millett's HQ is in CA (Huntington Beach I think) and when I call a real person without a foreign accent picks up the phone and actually knows what I am talking about. They also have a great warranty. I'd just love to hear some reports on this new scope as I'm considering it for my next build down the road here. Thanks.
