A year and some months ago I came across a pair of Winchester model 70
.243 rifles at a price too good to pass by. Both of these rifles were topped with 4-16x44 LRX night eater nikko stirling scopes which didnt impress me much since I have owned/aquired nikko stirling scopes in the past. ( gold crown 3-9x40, silver crown 3-9x40, several 4x32s on rimfires.)
The gold and silver crown scopes couldnt be trusted to hold zero after a ride on the back seat and some of the 4x32s just wouldnt zero or cross hairs actually broke free from their fixtures and rattled around inside the
tube. I dont bench shoot, I shoot for land holders and cull so my guns do get bounced around a bit but I do depend on enough accuracy to make 300yrd+
shots at fist sized heads. The platinum night eaters dont have the clearest
picture and can be a tad hazy at long distance but so far I have been supprised with the zero holding, although I dont like the click-less adjustments much, You can sort of stop between clicks which dosent seem to feel right when your used to hearing solid metallic clickes, but if your just not quite on the zero at 150yrds on one click or the next
it might just get you there between the clicks. Could be an extra plus.
Overall they are not crown jewels, they are a tool that has so far proved
hardy enough to do the job...
