I made a thing

I continue to absolutely love living in the future.

I am a cheap bastard. My cars are old. My house is old. My guns are significantly newer, but they’re not expensive. The most expensive gun I own is the AR10 I built and most of that is because AR10.

My “long range”* rifle is a Remington 700 AAC-SD with the factory trigger and a $350 scope. My carry gun is a Glock 23 I bought 10 years ago. My IDPA gun is an M&P9 with an apex trigger but that’s it.

So when I bought a spotting scope, I went with something super cheap: The Emarth 20-60x60AE

But, well, it kind of sucks, being that it’s so cheap. So since I have a 3D printer and you can get a Logitech C270 for $15, I decided to make two cheap things way, waaaaay better:

I’ll let you know how it works out at the range. Or not. I’m semi-retired from blogging 🙂

*Now that I’m really starting to get in to it, the R700 doesn’t really qualify as long range anymore. Need moar Creedmoor.
