I also have a super slam euro and am very satisfied. I do not know if the quality of this "Weaver European rifle scope" is the same or not but the adjustments are quoted on the natchez website as being in cm.I have this one and really like it.
Glass is great quality, construction is solid. Never read a bad review about Weaver glass, and I read alot.
Ya, I missed that sorry. So basically 1cm = roughly 1/3" so 3 cm = 1" at 100 yards (actually 1.18") instead of 4 clicks for 1" at 100 yards.I do not know if the quality of this "Weaver European rifle scope" is the same or not but the adjustments are quoted on the natchez website as being in cm
Darban,Check out ,all4shooters.com They have a write up on the Weaver european scopes. Evedently there is a line Weaver made up for the european market. You would need to learn or know the metric system. We have MOA, Mil and now cm.:a43:
Very good description and informative.Darban,
Most Europeans use radians that is a military standard all over the world and while it is associated with the metric system it actually works with any unit of measure.
One radian is a huge angle so we use thousands of a radiant called miliradiant or simply a mil. One miliradiant (or mil) at 1000 yards equates to 1 yard on the target and one miliradian at 1000 meters is 1 meter. The advantage
of the metric system is that is a factor of 10 os it is easier for shooting and for everything else in the world for that matter. Like one miliradian of 100 meters is 100/1000 that is 0.1 meters that is 10cm. Many scopes will give
you 10 clicks so is one cm per click. That is roughly 0.4 inches. if we did 100 yards that would be 100/1000 = 0.1 yards that 3.6 inches and then we are dealing with 1/4 or 1/8 divisions. So this is why metric is faster.
The thing with the systems is that they are all good if your math is right and if there are any calibrated reticles the ideal is to have your adjustments to match the reticle/ stadia design.
But at the same time if you have enough references in your scope to holdover for the average ranges, and one doesn't need turret for constant adjustments like long range shooters do,
then it is not critical if you have a turret in other unit of measure. One might never use it other than zeroing and simply hold your shots when shooting.
However if you use the reticle a lot and in any magnification then a first focal plane is a great thing so the holdover is always accurate but also one can hold on the target and forget about
the scope. Well after you miss the first time and can at least trace your shot! :a36:
I had one scope with long eye relief and was lucky enough to sell it, to someone whom thought it was fine. I do not need another.The measurment system built into this Weaver is a "who cares" for me. You click it up ... it goes up. You click it down ... it goes down. You sight it in the same way you would do most any scope.
What would/should be of some concern to ya'll is the eye relief. It is L O N G. Should be a great scope for the heavy recoiling guns used in Africa. Seems it would be great on a 45-70 or my 500S&W carbine or my 10ga. carbine.
Should be good to go as long as you can live with the eye relief. On certain guns .... I could. --- pruhdlr
