    Hi all.

    Recently brought one of these scopes and used it first time today at hft.
    I found that there was a long eye relief and got a lot of patalax error. On my other Burris lsr I can use a pigs ear but cannot with this one because of the eye relief and today missed a few shots because of that. I can also see double ret at times. So far a diss appointing scope purchase :( can I over come these problems or just go back to my other scope?

    It will be mounted on my Steyr if that helps at all.

    I have used a 3-9x32 sako quad for a few years. Mine is spot on and I am very happy with it.

    The eye relief is long but that doesn't cause me any problems.

    How do you beat the long eye relief Dave? Just a matter of getting used to it? I have the same scope!

    You just mount the scope further away ;)

    I have had nothing but good results with mine. Not noticed any real parallax error to speak of.

    I don't use a eye cup / maximizer - just the scope.

    I can't move it anymore forward as its right on the edge lol

    I think I'll give it one more go before I flog it. If I was to sell it how much do you think it's worth? Brought it from a shop so can't sell it second hand shop prices really.
