The 4-20x50 Super Slam Euro-Style Riflescope (Matte Black) from Weaver is an excellent optic designed for the serious big game hunter and shooter. This sighting solution is argon purged; fogproof and waterproof. The riflescope is fitted with fully multicoated lenses with extra hard coating on the exterior lenses. The sight picture is clear, sharp, and accurate and the lenses are protected from scratches and abrasions. This Super Slam scope is configured with a European style 30mm tube, pull-up turrets, side focus parallax adjustment, an Illuminated Crosshair German #4 reticle in the first focal plane and a matte black finish.
Locating the reticle in the first focal plane allows the size of the pattern to increase as the magnification is increased. This is preferred by many tactical groups for use as a point of aim and as a means of measurement.
A mounting base and rings are used to attach a riflescope to a firearm. A comfortable sight picture is contingent upon the height of the rings. A comfortable cheek-weld is the result of properly positioning the scope over the receiver. Mounting the scope close to the receiver is preferable, yet scopes with larger objectives need higher rings so the front bell can clear the barrel. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.
