Anyone running any of the Arken scopes??
What are your thoughts on them?
Glass quality? Comparable to what other scopes?

I have 2 on order.
EP5 5-25x56 FFP
SH4 4-16x20 Gen2 FFP

I've bought 2 of the EP5's now and really like them. I run them on both my 22LR competition guns.

I ran the Viper Gen2 5-25 previously and the glass and turrets on the EP5 are much better. The eyebox is a little less forgiving on the EP5 though. So far the eyebox is the only negative I've found.

If you're looking for either of those scopes Blanco on this forum is a reseller and normally has really good deals.

I have an EP5 and previously had a SH4. The glass is definitely better on the EP5. Turrets are really, really good. I havent been able to shoot with one but only other issue other than what KRoyal already mentioned is the illuminated reticle being worthless. Id still have the SH4 but the buyer of the rifle I had it on wanted the scope.
