Default Delta Stryker 1-6

I'm wondering if anyone here has got their hands on one of these. I'm particularly concerned about the durability, since the few reviews/videos that are out there don't address it. Otherwise, it looks very promising. People describe it as being like a Steiner P4Xi that's a 1-6. For those who don't know, it's made at the LOW factory in Japan, the same one that makes a lot of top end scopes like the Vortex Razors.

If I was in the market for a 1-6x under $1,000 - this is the one I'd get. It's made by LOW in Japan, so I wouldn't worry much about durability - they're well known for making high quality optics. However, I'm more interested in intermediate hunting optics (2-10x, 3-15x, etc) than LPVOs these days.

I have one, and I am super happy I took a risk on a European company just getting their foothold here in the US (though they have a strong reputation overseas).

Sorry, I've only been out once since I got it; its way too early to speak about durability. For that I'm relying heavily on LOW's reputation.

As far as quality goes, I am so very happy I went with this over the Viper PST, which it is probably most often compared to, along with the p4xi. The light weight, superb glass, and nuclear bright dot have exceeded my expectations.

About the only thing missing from my wish list on this was a shake awake feature for the red dot. Very minor quibble, and of course you have the reticle available at all times regardless. I did an absolutely unhealthy amount of research before this purchase and it paid off. I feel confident saying there is no better value in a LPVO at this price point. And it really isn't close.

Hope that helps.

That's Great it looks helpful.

I have one. The red dot is daylight bright. From a bang for buck standpoint, this is hands down the best SFP LPVO and it is not even close. What matters after value is the reticle and if you are willing to pay almost double to get the 1-6x which is the Razor Gen 2. At that point, you are really paying for the lifetime warranty that comes with Vortex.

Almost double the prices for Razor 1-6? Most of us who buy vortex pay discounted price that is readily available through authorized dealers. I paid slightly over $1000 for a BNIB Razor 1-6 gen2-e MRAD thru my usual online retailer (EuroOptics).

Vortex also has a very good MIL discount. So does one of the vendors here, CSTactical.

I just looked up Eurooptic and the Razor Gen 2 MRAD is $1,399. Are you referring to military/LEO discount or sale? That is almost 30% discount you got there. I would love to know more as I am looking at either a March 1-10x shorty or Vortex 1-10x for a new Scar 17S.

LibertyOptics has the Gen 3 Razor for 1699 or something like that. But you may have to wait many months for it. YMMV.

Jumping in on an older thread. Where does someone in the US buy a Delta Stryker these days? I searched but the vendors that pop up are unknown to me.

FYI, I just picked up a Vortex Viper PST G2 in 1-6x. It's a very nice scope of course, but I am not crazy about the weight. One thing not mentioned yet in this thread is the Stryker's 17 oz weight. That's a quarter pound less, give or take, than the Viper. Very appealing to me, along with the Stryker's other benefits.

Edit: I see it's avail on Amazon. Wouldn't mind knowing of another source.

Ah thanks. Too bad for me, out of stock right now.

I did find a place in Europe who'll sell to the US. Better price too. Mostly very positive reviews of them online. I just want to reach out first and make sure they'd be no surprise duty/customs charges.

I bought mine through Darn Fine Shot. They offer discounts of 4% for Zelle and 2% for Venmo, as well. You have to email them for best price.

Thanks. I decided just to call him the other day. Nice guy. He explained that discount stuff to me but I was paying with a CC anyway. And his quoted price was VERY reasonable compared to the "official" online price so didn't question anything. I should be receiving my Stryker 1-6x on Saturday.

Following up. Received my Stryker 1-6x the other day. Very nice little scope. Very high quality for sure. Great glass. Noticeably smaller and lighter than the Viper PST G2 I just returned. In fact, this Stryker's weight, combined with the SIG Alpha3 mount I have it on, weighs the same as the bare Viper PST.

BTW, SIG Alpha3, this might be a hidden gem. Not a quick-release type, I'll say up front. But it's machined from 7075-T6 and uses all titanium hardware. On my kitchen scale it's only 4.8 oz. That's lighter than just about anyone's mount I know of, save the Aero ultra-lights. Center height off the rail is 1.535".

Finally got the Stryker mounted. FYI, it's on a BCM upper that has their 410SS medium profile 16" barrel. I believe it's BCM's original "Recce" barrel, patterned after the original Crane-SEAL RECCE design, more or less. Had it a while. It's on its third handguard now.

Very nice setup and the first time I'm seeing this mount

It all seems bolder when actually looking through the scope than when seen in youtube vids. I'll have to get out to the desert at some point soon for a real world evaluation.

When ordering, I was on the fence about which one to get. The simpler DGMR has finer lines by about 1/3 and of course fewer hash marks. Basically, just mil marks for holdovers. The bolder, busier DSMR is probably a better choice for competition shooting, maybe HD? But of course with both having a bright little center doc, that might be an equalizer.

I will say that the center dot on my DSMR is very bright. Almost too bright even at the lowest setting to use in low light. At "1" indoors, I see a little flaring shooting off the sides of the dot at about 10 and 4. Might be caused by my corrective eyewear though. I can't say how it'd look to person with perfect vision and thus no glasses.

On the dot itself, here are some numbers I calculated, in case anyone's interested. I'll convert the mil numbers to MOA for a better comparison with red-dots and holographic sights.

The DSMR's dot is .18 mil with scope on 6x. That translates to .648 MOA. So at 1x, the dot becomes ~3.9 MOA.

The DGMR's dot is .11 mil with scope on 6x. So, it's .396 MOA. And at 1x, the dot becomes ~2.4 MOA.

So if anyone figures on heavily relying on this LPVS's illuminated center point, these numbers might be helpful. It'd seem that the DGMR is more suited to precision shots at longer distances than the DSMR.

That's who I bought mine from. I phoned him and got a price under $800, but I can't recall if the deal he gave me was quite that low. Good to hear.

Which reticle did you get? DSMR or DGMR?
