Default Us Optics

I've been wanting one these for decades and am going move on picking one up. My question is how the new B series stuff compares to their older stuff like the ER and LR. I kinda wished I got a DFP a while ago but whatever.

Im looking at an LR17 vs B17 or the ER25 vs B25 in terms of quality. I heard things changed over there so wondering if the glass is still hand ground and awesome and if the build quality is still awesome. Thanks!

USO has definitely improved overall with their B series in terms of quality and their change of ownership to DRSG will definitely bring some welcome changes in the future with new products. Give us a call at 916.670.1103 if you'd like some guidance on some USO products.

First time I heard of US Optics was at a Soldier of Fortune gun show. I really miss those, they were the best shows ever. I met G Gordon Liddy at one and Carlos Hathcock at another. Anyway, every few minutes there was this loud banging for a minute. It was a guy at the US Optics booth hammering nails into a 2x4 with a scope.

I own several and while they are a great optic, they always seem just a bit behind other brands when it comes to the latest sought after bells and whistles of other optics. However, if you want the ability to special order/build an optic just about any way you want it, USO is the place to go.

Yea its great stuff. I'm wondering if I should chase the discount on the older models or fork out for a B series.

I think it may just be one of those "can't go wrong either way" situations. Its just a difference of old is great and new is greater haaha....mmmm
