Gift Ideas For The Gun Guy/Gal Who Already Has It All - #2 Adasion 12x42 Binoculars




In our previous blog post we discussed the need to have a good flashlight.  One example of it was the Fenix PD35 TAC.

Another item that is staple in my shooting bag is a good pair of binoculars.

While I am certainly not an optics snob who needs a $3,000 pair of binoculars with a built in range finder,  I do need something good enough to use at the range to either locate targets, spot hits for other shooters or to record shooting footage for my YouTube videos.

One pair I recently picked up was the Adasion 12x42 Binoculars on Amazon.

What attracted me to the pair specifically was that they were fairly light weight at 1.25 lbs and used a BAK4 prism and came with a smart phone adapter.

The BAK4 prism is a Chinese variety and slightly trails the German standard, it is far superior to the lower end BAK7 prisms, having a better refractive rate.

The smart phone adapter was well worth the money as I could mount my phone and have it record the target cam footage.  You can see it in use in my latest Ruger video on the 300 PRC. 

The Adasion 12x42 Binoculars are priced around $80 and is available in the United States from Amazon.com and I will have a detailed video on them in the near future.

I returned mine and they did not give back a refund.  I had to dispute it with my credit card company.

I returned the binocular on March 11.  They said they received the item on March 20.

I eventually got my full refund when I disputed with the CC on April 4, but I was annoyed that I had to go through the credit card company dispute process.

It was a pain in the A$$ process. Never again.

I just received an email from the company asking if I liked their product.  I replied back asking where is the refund that was promised and haven't heard back lol.
