Black Friday Scope deals

Looking for something in the 4-12x range and ideally a 30mm tube.

Anybody seen anything on sale?

PSA has a Vortex for $100 which may be my default if nothing else pops up.

Might try SWFA.com. They usually run a decent sale but I haven't seen the email yet.

I have the Vortex Crossfire ii 4-12x44 on my TC Compass in .308. Planning to hunt with it this weekend.

Got it for $109 with Vortex rings as an add on to the rifle on Black Friday special last year. For what it is, it's a great scope. Zero fisheye, great clarity at 4x, acceptable clarity for hunting at 12, and has held up to a few hundred rounds of 308 so far without issue and has held zero. It also has excellent eye relief.

the Vortex Diamondback is a slight step up from the Crossfire, although it sacrifices a bit of eye relief.

They also recently released a few Crossfire models with illuminated reticle, if that's your thing.

It's hard to recommend something when we don't know your price range.

Not really looking for recommendations necessarily, just deals. But I’d spend up to $1500.

I gotcha. Still helpful to know pricepoint.

Primary Arms PLx series looks pretty unbeatable for the price. They make a 6-30x56mm FFP that looks pretty good.

They also have a few different models with varying reticle options.

As far as Black Friday deals, here's a link that seems to have a bunch of deals all in one place.

I would take a look at Tract Optics this weekend. They are doing a black friday sale per their instagram. Their Toric UHD 4.5-30 is my favorite scope atm. I liked it better than my Razor Gen 2. The 30 mm 4-20 are also very nice scopes.

I have a Vortex 50% off Cert I am also going to be selling soon, if you are interested send me a PM. The Razors and Viper Gen 2s are both nice scopes for LR.

I would also hop on Snipershide for used scopes. The other scope to look for would be an Athlon Ares ETR or the Cronus. Both are nice glass for less than your budget.

I've been looking at the Plx. Big fan of PA stuff.

Thanks, I've been looking at Vortex too, but can't ever catch anything in stock.
