US Optics Mil Dot

uso1When it comes to high end glass for use on tactical sniper rifles, the name US Optics is usually one of the first to come to mind. US Optics (USO for short) actually took over the Unertl USMC scope contract a few years before the replacement of that scope all together with Schmidt & Bender. There has been some controversy about the USMC scopes and replacement, but USO is still a player, and when it comes to custom tactical scopes, USO is pretty much the only game around if you are going REALLY custom. Leupold and others have some custom options, but the USO scopes are truly a custom scope with different knobs, reticules, features, colors and other options available. A loyal SC friend had recently provided a KMW rifle for review and it came topped with a USO SN3 T-Pal, so we figured we would give it a run through to see how it does.

uso5The first thing I will mention is that the US Optics website is a little rough around the edges, at least at this time. There is some info, but there are several errors and bugs with broken images and it makes it hard to get some detailed info at times. It was worse a few days ago so it looks like there is at least some work being done on it and while this does not reflect on the quality of the scopes and some may argue that they would rather they build quality scopes and not quality web pages, but to me, it seems a customer facing portal to your company should be looking sharp and putting a good foot forward. But anyway, moving beyond that…

The scope itself appears to be excellent with a good design. The tube is rugged and looks nice with its green anodized finish. It is matte and tactical in nature, which makes it a little strange that they would put their US Optics logo so large and in white.uso4 Why not a subdued black color and a bit smaller? Just seems odd and out of place on a scope designed for purely tactical use.

The knobs on the scope are worth mentioning, as this scope comes with the metric EREK knob with its 90 clicks of adjustment per revolution. The neat thing about the metric version is that it is very nicely suited for the mil reticules out there.uso3 This scope has the nice GAP Mil reticule that allows for the ability to measure 10 mils below the horizontal. The reason the metric knobs work so well is because each click is 1cm, and if you remember that a milliradian is 1 measure of unit at 1000 measures of unit and doing a little bit of math, you come to realize that each click of the metric knob is 1/10th Milliradian, and the knob is conveniently marked as such. So if you need to go 1 mil high at 100 meters, dial in 10 clicks, or a full decemeter, and you are there. It is different than the traditional MOA method, but the concepts are the same, you are just using a reticule that is compatible with the knobs. It is a smart idea and has been growing in popularity.
