Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-16x44 FFP Rifle Scope DBK-10026

Try not to spit out your coffee as you check the $449 retail, 349 street price of the Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-16×44 FFP Rifle Scope DBK-10026 after reading about its impressive performance and features. The first focal plane reticle, a feature ordinarily reserved for 4-figure-priced optics, allows shooters to use the information-packed EBR-2C reticle for ranging, holdovers or windage corrections on any magnification. Housed inside its durable, one-piece aluminum tube is a 4x optical system delivering excellent edge-to-edge clarity and sharp resolution. Exposed elevation and windage turrets are low profile enough to stay out of the way in packing situations, but offer the quickness, ease and precision of dialing accurate shots at distance. A side adjustable parallax gives shooters peace of mind by removing parallax error from the equation from 20 yards to infinity.

American Defense AD-RECON-S Scope Mount

Rifle Scope Mount – American Defense AD-RECON-S

American Defense AD-RECON-S Scope Mount – As mentioned on the MDT TAC21 page we were on the fence with scope mounts for the project. We really wanted to go with the SPUHR but the cost was beyond our budget and we figured for most others as well.  In the end we chose the American Defense AD-RECON-S Scope Mount for a few simple reasons. The first reason is they have a relationship with our friends at Criterion Barrels. Relationships are important to us. Reason two, we recently purchased a B&T Industries ATLAS PSR BIPOD BT46-LW17 and it included an American Defense ADM 170-S QD base for attaching to a picatinney rail. The ADM QD system utilizes a lever locking system reminiscent of the BOBRO QD mounts though not as refined.We were pleased enough with that mount that we wanted to get our hands on a.n ADM SCOPE MOUNT for evaluation. Lastly the mount has a lot of surface area to hold the scope and is visually appealing and actually has a look that goes well with the MDT TAC21.

We like to run the US Optics Fixed Anti-Cant Device on our precision firearms.

A note on the cost of the SPUHR. It’s not really an apples to apples comparison to any other scope mount. The SPUHR is $410 but it includes an integral level and the ability to accept  bolt on accessories for additional sighting options.
