  Ilya,

Mil-Quad version, coming soon.


Atlas,

What rings did you use?


  Greg,

We did not use the same glass that we use in the Classic SS line (different formula & different coatings).

Excellent.  Do you know if Kenton has plans to offer custom elevation turrets for the ultralight?  I think you will make a killing with this thing.

It is in the same general category as the 3-15x42 SS, although the design is obviously very different.  Given that it is a 4x erector system and slim eyepiece, this scope does not have any design commonalities with other SS scopes.

That is indeed good news on the coming Mil-Quad version. I’ll likely be picking up one of those in time. 

As to the rings I used, they are the Burris XTR Signature variety, in High. I mentioned this earlier in this thread and explained why. I like them. 

However, I do plan to try the TPS TSR in Extra High next, though. They should offer just a bit more height, and just a bit more inter-ring distance - both which will make my carry method a tad more comfortable and natural. 

Chris, you’ve definitely got a winner in this line. Exploit it. 

Keep your powder dry,
Atlas Shrug

Any chance of a x42 version of the mil-quad in this series? It would still be lighter than anything on the market
