JB said:I can be corrected if I'm wrong here, but just to clarify I think the intent is in regard to adjustable focus and not magnification. Cheaper scopes often have a tendancy to shift zero and/or go out of focus when zooming.
The China Cheapo house brand I have on one of my rimfires has been focus adjusted in the mid range power settings and the lower and upper ends are total garbage.
You'tre right and I stand humbly corrected. My confusion may have led to more confusion on this thread so I'll backtrack a bit and hopefully get this thread back on track after my comments. Keep in mind I had to read this thread a few times before this dawned on me!boatboy said:I could be wrong but I think you are talking about the adjustment on the eye end
He is talking about the objective
Note the use of 'adjustable' as opposed to 'variable'? Common jargon but one which came back to haunt me further along. I overlook such things and just continued along in what can probably be called translation mode for lack of another term.Would you rather have a fixed 4X32 or an adjustable 3-9X40?
Most call them Variables. But tomatoe, tomato. You explain what you meant and it's all good!JB said:Lots of folks say adjustable power 3-9 and some say 3x9 adjustable. We always know what they mean. Not everyone flip flops occular and objective.... but I did!
