"tested by special forces"

Among the more misleading claims made by manufacturers. I'll give you an example, when I was in 10th Group we got a box of knives donated by a company back in the States. They seemed pretty cool and a lot of guys ran them on deployments and during training, but after a while everyone ditched them because the material was pretty weak and they couldn't hold an edge. We gave feedback to the company, mostly negative, but alas a year goes by and I see an ad in SOF magazine for the knives..."issued to Special Forces!".

Other than that, interesting scope design

Not the way NF does testing. They actually get feedback and make changes hence veriosn 4 of the scope. Read more on SH.com
