Very Happy Customer

Mr. Pride,

 First, I’m sorry for taking so long to thank you for your help, patience, knowledge, wisdom, and generosity with your scopes. If you don’t remember, I was the gentleman who talked to Mr. Edward Smith of A2ZGovSupply.

I was trying to find a PFI 900-4 RR scope in February 2018; I first used your scope while stationed in Afghanistan. I was impressed with the speed of acquiring the target, the accuracy, and the simplicity of zeroing. (I.E., zeroing the scope at 100 meters, and it’s now zeroed to 900 meters).  Once I rotated back, I knew I had to get one.

Thank you for helping me set it up and running on my Springfield M1A; the shims worked wonders. And your generosity is unmatched; you sent me new rings after our phone conversation about me having the wrong rings.

You also sent me a T&E RR-Evolution 5.56/7.62 scope; at the time, I didn’t have a rifle for it, so I went to the range with a buddy, threw it on his Remington 783 rifle, I zeroed it, and he was picking off targets. He turned me and said, “I want one.” We ordered him one that day. 

After doing some Family time and rejoining the workforce, I didn’t have time to get to the range. However,  I purchased a Remington 700 SPS Enhanced, threw on that RR-Evolution 5.56/7.62, and went to the range. I’m still a happy shooter. 

I recently gave a co-worker the RR-Evolution 5.56/7.62, and I’m waiting for his review. I recently ordered a Springfield Saint Victor, and I plan to try it on that rifle. 

Also, I can’t forget to say a big thank you to Rae Pride for the logistics side of the house. Thank you for dealing with me and getting the scope into the mail to my eagerly waiting hands. Oh, Sir, do you offer Anti-reflection Device (ARD) for the RR-Evolution?  Thank you again, Sir, for everything you’ve done for me; I’m a very happy customer.


Very Easy To Get Consistent Hits on All Targets

I recently discussed ranging and shooting steel targets at varying distances with John Pride, CEO of PFI and the Rapid Reticle system developer. I currently run a Vortex Viper on my LR308, which works fine for what I do.

As we discussed engaging multiple targets at varying distances, he explained the simplicity of his Rapid Reticle system. I couldn’t help but mention that I would like to try one on the upcoming trip to the NRA Whittington Center in New Mexico. 

John walked to his truck and returned with one of his 1-6×24 prototypes, already mounted on an American Defender Quick Detach scope mount. He handed it to me and asked me to try it out on my trip.

I immediately swapped his scope/mount onto my LR308 and zeroed the scope for my rifle at 100 yards.  I could zero in 4 shots; then, I fired several 5 round groups to get accustomed to the reticle. Once that was accomplished, I swapped my Vortex back onto the rifle and checked zero. The following weekend I left for New Mexico.

My home range sits right at 1,200 feet, and the ranges at the Whittington Center are right at 7,000 feet in elevation.  First, I double-checked zero on my scope, dismounted it, mounted the PFI 1-6×24, and checked zero. At 100 yards, the zero was perfect, with no adjustment necessary.

The range I was on had paper targets at 50, 75, 100, and 200 yards, plus several steel targets – a bear at 450 yards, two coyotes at 550 yards, and a buffalo at 735 yards.

Using the Rapid Reticle, I could shoot on the 100-yard target, then immediately swing over to the 450-yard bear and score a hit, followed immediately by a hit on the 550-yard coyote and the 735-yard buffalo, all in rapid succession. No twisting on the turrets but simply using the ranging reticle built into the Rapid Reticle scope.

It was very easy to get consistent hits on all of these targets, each at a different distance and without calculating how many mils I needed to dial to make the hit. The reticle is marked for rapid ranging out to at least 950 yards, and the ranging marks worked perfectly for my ammo which runs just under 2,600 FPS at 7,000 feet elevation.


I Feel Like I Hit The Lottery

First, let me say wow! You are awesome! Second, I want to say thank you very much sir, for your generosity with your scopes and your service to this great country. Thank you! I absolutely love these scopes; the scope you sent for AR just blew me away!

I felt like I hit the lottery, I’ve never seen anything like it! The illumination, the very unique crosshairs, how do you shrink and in large with the magnification! Just awesome. I can’t wait to try it out! It looks total badass on the AR too.

The rings you sent look real good with the scope nice and low on the weapon. Will it shoot better with a quick release one piece mount? If the scoop is up higher? I always wanted to put a scope on it, Smith & Wesson M&P15. I was told the 5.56 x 45 will shoot flat for 200 yards.

This weapon is a whole new animal now with this scope! The charging handle is a little hard to grab, but not bad at all. It looks so awesome on the rifle. I had an EOTech on the MP15, it came with the rifle when I bought it brand new at Gander Mountain. As I said I always wanted to put a scope on it, and the three Dash 12 x 42 you sent is something I probably would never have been able to buy, and now I do thanks to you!

I put the EO Tech on my PS 90, 5.7 x 28 mm, seems more practical on that weapon, more short range optic. That is the weapon I’m going to teach my wife to shoot with. It has low recoil, easy to operate, 50 Artie clip, and compact bull pup design. So she feels comfortable with it, and can protect yourself and my son with it in home defense situations, if I’m not here. Chance favors the prepared mind.

I told my Vietnamese Veteran buddy about you, and the scopes you sent, and he was overjoyed, and can’t wait to see them, and try them. He has nice 100 yard shooting range at his house, very safe too.

Again, you are a very kind and generous man, and a pleasant person to talk to. Thank you again for the scopes, and thank you for your service to this great nation. I will continue to purchase items from you, I was looking online at some hard rifle cases, and a sunshade to screw in on the end of the three – 12 x 42.

I will tell all my friends, if they want to call optics to check out your website. Thanks again, and God bless you sir!


I Am Very Amazed at This!

Hello,  My name is Sergeant First Class Steven Kipling. I am a Platoon Sergeant in the Scout Platoon of the 1-501 IN (ABN) Ft Richardson, Alaska. We have been testing your 10X42 RR800 w/ mounted close-quarter optic on top.  I wanted to send some of the results thus far…

On the 26th of April 06, we conducted a Parachute Jump in Northern Alaska; this optic was mounted on a Spring field National Match M14. and survived the parachute jump.

The optic was encased in a padded scope cover with bubble wrap taped around it and secured in a Rifle Parachute case (60-mod M1950 weapon case). I modified it with a small cardboard frame around the bubble wrap to secure it even better.

I personally zeroed the 10X to the rifle at 100 Meters and was capable of 1/4 inch groups at 100M (this was done with a 175-grain mil match) This took approx. not more than 5 minutes. 

We then moved to the 500M mark and were consistently capable of 1/2 to 2-inch groups at 500M and also had 12 of my Paratroopers fire this with my zero with the same results.  Checking the wind speed each time before sending a round down range, even with 10-knot winds, we were able to make center mass hits. 

We moved to the 600M, and the results were outstandingly the same.  The final was moving to the 800M, and surprisingly the same! I am very amazed at this!
