On reflection, it would seem that going after Minox for their 3-15 probably is a straightforward path, though the price will likely be high. Anybody got contact there? Perhaps this is something THLR himself can mediate given their existing business relationship?Your post was spot-on and actionable and could be applied to any of the companies if someone does a little linked-in stalking on the other companies. That strategy makes perfect sense, no quibble from me.
The point I was trying to make earlier still stands though--the proposal at hand is NOT simply asking for a production run of an existing product, a la gap LRHS, it is asking for a specific product change to an existing product, a change that we dont know what costs or issues come with it (contact with THLR seems notably absent from this post). My skepticism has nothing to do with the product or my own reaction to the reticle, it is simply trying to point out that there are surprisingly (shockingly?) large costs associated with what seem like minor changes like this, and as a result I 'll be floored if they come through with it. My suggestions are rooted in what seem to me to be more-likely avenues for getting a version of the scope, ie mainly focused on companies that already have BOTH products (reticle and suitable-footprint scope, ie minox) and asking them to combine those things. Also a long shot, also possibly the wrong way, but from where I sit and with the experience I have in product management I think potentially more likely. No reason that you cant try both avenues, either.
