A Problem Looking For A Solution – Zeiss LRP S3
Or the question could be, “A solution looking for a problem”. Either way, it sometimes is not a bad dilemma to have. In my travels this fall I stumbled across a Ed Brown Custom A3 Tactical. I did not even know Ed Brown had made rifles but some quick Google Fu showed they were made in various forms for a few years. I grabbed this rifle up since it was in 300WM (and I am kind of a 30 cal whore) but being honest, it has sat, waiting for the right scope to top it off.
This is where Zeiss enters the game. I started seeing ads for the LRP S3 about a month before they hit the shelves. I resisted the urge to grab one up until I actually handled one, but once I did, it sure felt like the perfect fit for the Ed Brown. One thing Ed Brown did was use 8-40 base screws. This helps secure the base on big recoil rifles, but aren’t exactly plentiful at small local gun shops. A quick search online and problem solved.
The next chapter in this story will be the pairing of Ed Brown and Carl Zeiss.
