Default Simmons Master Series Scopes

Well, it took me awhile to research these scopes since John's original post was very confusing to me. Well, I am now more confused, however, Simmons seems to have come up with some revolutionary changes to internal scope design. I was skeptical (who show me Rick ) at first, but the changes made in the way of eliminating the biasing spring by use of a beryllium ring at the gimbal point makes sense. By the way, I had a biasing spring fail in one of my Leupolds a few years back. Side bar aside, the new scopes also have new glass, new coatings, new windage and elevation adjustments, greater eye relief and a 17% more increase in windage and elevation range. Any time you can reduce the number of parts in something you can build lighter and stronger. It seem Simmons has done this. I did some checking and you can purchase a Master Aetec 4X14X44 for under 200 dollars and get this.....it weighs a mere 12.8 ounces!!

Okay, who out there has purchased one of these or is everyone waiting for someone to be the Guinea Pig? Regards, Rick.
