Default Help needed re EB sniper


Just trying to find out if the following is true. Is the EB sniper 10x42 similar or the same as the old Deben Military and Poliice 10x42?

Heard somewhere that it is very similar - this is the old Deben and not the newer DMP!

Kind Regards

They are similar scopes as is Tasco Super Sniper 10x42 and Nikko Stirling Sniper 10x42... some were made by Hakko, some by Light Optical Works, all good quality Japanese optics.

Eb sniper was a tasco scope mk1 eb snipers are the best ones to get. The mk2 eb snipers which were built by tasco were not as good quality and the lens were not as good as mk1 and the build quality as well not as good. Tasco went bust and sold the rights of the eb sniper to a company called swfa in america which produces it thier are a few models but it is the 300 dollar one which is the one you want.

lol i did wee bit of research on it its a interesting we story the scope was linked to the navy seals but swfa did not get the final contract.
