i bought a lite about 4 weeks ago and am happy with it except for one thing which i only found out tonight via uttings,and that is the mamba lite according to uttings website is NOT waterproof or fogproof,if this is the case i find it strange that the mtc cobra scopes are and yet the mamba lite which cost's 3 times more is'nt!
"Price aside, is this scope better than the Bushnell Legend? I'm torn between the two"
The SCB reticle is superb and for this reason I'm very happy with my Mamba Lite. For clarity of optics though for me the Bushnell is the winner. As are many of the AGS/Leapers in the same price range for that matter. Just my opinion.
I reckon that's an error on Uttings part. I've had my Lite well and truely soaked and used in some mad old weather conditions, if it wasn't waterproof/fogproof then I'd expected to have noticed by now.
Can Gary clear up this water proof / fogproof debate please (before the speculators arrive)
Yes they are water and fog proof, although not for immersion in water obviously because they are moisture not pressure seals
If you can't get behind our troops stand in front of them..
I have just ordered one of these myself in 3-12x44 spec. I sold my Falcon Menace, to fund it, having see kwikys hunting experiences with his mamba lite. It will complement my hunting set up perfectly.
Apart from the comments so far....
I have bought these scopes to replace the substantially larger and heavier hawke SR6 Nighteye scopes I had on 2 of my springers and the Huntsman.
It was really down to an article by Jim Tyler about bigger not always being better, it made sense, so I flogged the SR6s and some other odds and sods and re-scoped.
The difference was most marked with the huntsman as it is a very light rifle to start with, so anything lumpy on the roof makes a real difference to balance, ideal.
The springers were ideal too (TX and PS) as it allowed me to drop the scopes much closer to the action, which makes sense as I dont shoot the springers anywhere near as far as the PCPs (Viper).
They really are nice little scopes, bright, and the SCB ret is very good, particular for fairly long range .177
You only just cover a pellet hole at 35 with the cross hairs, so it makes potentially for a much tighter group at 35+ 10x.
The thing is that the side focus is pretty well default accross the range also, a feature without which I would not really consider buying a scope since my first Viper.
What the hell was that then????
great reading there MTC sell some great scopes
