“scotty” Travelsforfun, that is a nice looking set up! Very nice of you to list your parts and the cost as I am shopping/ dreaming. What is the scope you are using there?


Thanks. The scope is a US Optics LR17 17x with Gen2 XR reticle. Here is some info on it:

LR-17 features a 44mm objective lens sits in front of a Turret Parallax Adjustment Locater (TPAL) system guaranteeing the sharpest image resolution possible throughout the 3.2-17 power magnification range.  Target acquisition for accurate shots beyond 1,500 yards is possible when dialing the power ring to maximum value.  LR-17 optics features an Erector Repositioning Elevation Knob (EREK) system with 1/10 MIL or ¼ inch per hundred yards (IPHY) click values that maximizes gross elevation travel adjustment.  The same mechanical precision engineered into the EREK knob is incorporated into the US#1 windage knob to ensure that reticle adjustment is precise.   A 12-position illuminated reticle system provides an advantage for taking your best shot in low light conditions.  Housed in a rugged, Type III hard-anodized 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum body, the LR-17 will always hold zero from daily use and in the harshest field conditions. 

The GENIIXR reticle in the LR-17GENIIXR features hold over points below zero to better facilitate range estimation and trajectory compensation. The reticle incorporates alternating hash marks and dots that are spaced out in ½ MIL increments.  The hash marks and dots represent 5 MILs of total elevation adjustment above the horizontal axis; 10 MILs of elevation adjustment below horizontal axis and 5 MILs of windage adjustment to the left and right of the vertical axis.  The GENIIXR reticle is thinner to obscure less of the target for a cleaner image. 

  • 12-position, MIL scale Illuminated Reticle System (IRS) is optimized for target engagement at medium range distances and when engaging targets at medium range in low light conditions. 
  • Proprietary thin film coatings fused to precision-ground and polished lenses project sharp image resolution at over 85% light transmission beginning from the objective lens through the eyepiece to ensure a crystal clear sight picture even in low light conditions. 
  • Adjustable eyepiece with a range of +2 to -3 diopter ensures a sharp and distinct reticle image.
  • 32mm eyepiece and a 44mm objective  yield a 3mm exit pupil. 
  • At 1.8X magnification the field of view at 100 yards spans 41.6 feet for maximum situational awareness through the sight picture.
  • At 10X magnification the field of view at 100 yards spans 12.8 feet for maximum situational awareness through the sight picture.
  • Low-profile Erector Repositioning Elevation Knob (EREK) is easily manipulated in any environmental condition including cold and inclement weather, with or without gloves.
  • EREK incorporates a center screw for rough zeroing allowing maximum upward travel of 90 distinct, positive clicks per revolution in 1/10 MIL increments or 1/4 Inch Per Hundred Yards (IPHY) when adjusting elevation.
  • Turret Parallax Adjustment Locater (TPAL) knob corrects perceived image shift, or parallax, at distances as near as 30 yards to infinity.
  • US#1 windage knob with 48 distinct, positive clicks per revolution facilitates adjustment in 1/10 MIL increments or 1/4 Inch Per Hundred Yards (IPHY).
