    Swarovski Lens are one of the finest on the market, check the prices of rifle scopes with there lenses. But there is hope. Archery optics on archery talk makes lenses and adapter rings for sure loc black eagle scopes. His lenses are top notch also.

    Yep thats the truth. I did find one lens that I think is actually clearer. a friend of mine bought a CBE scope and let me check it out. i'll tell you that I cant believe how clear it is. We compared them to a few of the sure loc scopes we had. and they are clearer. Believe it...or not...

    so how do they work?
    I see that they have like a ruler looking thing, is that like an adjustment for different distances?

    How do you determine what size scope housing to get? I see the black eagles come in three different sizes.

    Does it make any difference for lens power and scope size? I.E. - Would it be better to have a larger housing if you were to use a high power lens?

    I don't think the lens is worth the price. Get a Viper and be done with it. More lens then most of us rookies will ever out shoot. :D
