    By G on 8/28/2018

    I have heard good things about this optic. I got one for an AR that destroyed a Leupold due to the recoil pulse in less than 500 rounds.

    The first thing I noticed was the clarity of the glass; it really is as good as people say. It is not quite the same as a Nightforce NXS, but it does not have all the optical distortion around your field of view like the Nightforce. This scope has better glass than my more expensive Weavers and Nikons and better glass than the Leupold it replaced. I bet the HD model would be very impressive.

    I like the turrets. The parallax location takes some getting used to, but it works well. I put in some zero stop shims. My optic was from before the $100 in free stuff offer. I am planning to buy more of these; one each for a 22-250 Improved, 22-243 and 7mm Rem mag. I may try the 12x, but I do not know how much it will affect exit pupil and field view; both of which I like a lot of. I wish they made a 12x50 HD! Also, I love the reticle. It is fine, easy to understand and does not clutter field of view. It is very practical for measuring, spotting and fine enough for target use. The caps are a good-add on for the money. Tracks right, so far.


  • Beat on hard and still hard to beat!

    By RJ from AZ on 7/4/2018

    I received my first one a little over a year ago. I took it out to my little spot in the desert to sight it in and see what it could do. I zeroed it in three rounds and put another couple of rounds through it to empty the magazine. I had the front of my rifle sitting on my tripod (about 3 1/2 feet up) and the rear on a bench. I walked away to reload another magazine and a dust devil (“AZ tornado”) came through and blew everything over. I ran over thinking “Great! I’ve had my new scope out 5 minutes and now it’s broken.” As I picked it up, I noticed the indentation on the ground where the scope turret apparently hit the ground first (attached to my 14 lb. rifle). I loaded it up, lined up on the target and, wow! Still zeroed! Performed a box test... perfect results! So far, I have taken it out to 1109 yards. I nailed the target (with hand loads and watching the wind, of course) and returns to my 100 yd. zero perfectly.

    This thing is built like a tank. This scope is as clear as any of my other scopes that start with a V. I sold ALL of those and bought another 10x. I am building another long-range rifle and am about to order yet another. You cannot do any better for two to three times this price and cannot say enough good about this line. I have even turned some hard-core Leupold die hards onto this scope as well!

  • You will not regret it

    By CB on 5/26/2018

    I have been using this scope now for a couple of years and a few hundred rounds of 175gr M118 (.308) equivalent through my Remington 700. I shoot 300- 800 yards frequently and this scope is perfect for the task. Tracks perfectly every shot, if I do my part. The only negative I can think of at this point is that the clicks are soft feeling and you really have to pay attention when you make adjustments if the light is lower. Other than that, I love this scope and will get another when I get my .300 Win Mag.

  • Awesome scope

    By 7mmRemMag on 4/29/2018

    After searching several years for a good tactical scope for long range shooting, I ran across this scope. It comes highly recommended by an individual by the name of TiborasaurusRex on YouTube. I have watched several reviews regarding this scope and after finally having the money, I purchased one.

    I took it out shooting yesterday and I was very surprised to find out that factory zero setting was actually 3.5 mils high at 100 meters, which gave my rifle an additional 3.5 mils of elevation.

    The clarity of this scope at 100 meters is fantastic with a reticle that is easy to see. The thin reticle lines and diamond mil dots do not block out the target you are aiming at.

    As other reviews stated, these scopes track dead on the money. I will be purchasing another one to replace the crappy Burris Fullfield II drop reticle that came free with my rifle so my girlfriend and I’s 7mm Rem Mags will both have these scopes equipped.

    These scopes have been battle tested and one they were available to the civilian market, other people have put them through the paces and found out that they are nearly indestructible.

  • Buy a few

    By David W on 3/28/2018

    I have four of these scopes and two of the SS6x42MQ scopes. If there is a better scope for the money, I have not found it and I have looked. Repeatable clicks, easy to use reticle, low cost. I would buy a dozen. Wait, they NEVER break, so four 10X and two 6X should cover most guys up to official gun loony status.

  • Best Scope EVER

    By Gh0sT3D on 3/26/2018

    If you are looking for the best all-around scope for your money, this is it. From long-range precision to DMR’s to .22 Long Rifles, this scope can handle the job.

  • Outstanding

    By Smed on 4/25/2017

    An old shooter once taught me "A $10 scope for a $10 rifle. The glass should cost as much as the rifle." So when I saw this scope at only $300 I admit I was a bit doubtful. But after calling the customer service (I apologize I forget them man's name) and seeing how solid the company will stand behind their product, I had nothing to lose. He advised me that since it's a mil-dot reticle, I should get the mil adjustments. Totally makes sense but something I completely overlooked. If you have to come up 1.5 mils and the scope is set for 1/4 moa clicks, you better get the calculator out!

    After getting the scope, I knew I made the right choice. Crystal clear, solid, beautiful.

    But I'll throw in a couple CONS just so it doesn't sound like I'm being a suck up.
    * This scope comes with zero instructions. As a dad who is new to mil-dot and going to have to teach my son, a simple cheat sheet would've been nice. If you're not familiar with mil-dot, either start watching YouTube videos, buy a book, or ask some buddies.
    * The eye relief is very specific. Getting it set up for a bench shoot then switching to prone or sitting, your eye/cheek will naturally move a bit on the stock. This scope is very picky about it's eye position.

    But those two gripes are a stretch compared to the quality and warranty this scope offers. I'm actually thinking about trading in my 6-18 Leupold on another like this for my other rifle.

    5 solid stars.

  • SWFA SS 10x42

    By M. Holland on 4/11/2017

    These scopes must be considered an absolute best buy in the rifle optics world. I've used one on a big .50 Barrett, and this newest one on the Ruger 6.5 Creedmore. I love the Mil-Quad reticle. Very user friendly and doesn't clutter your view. You cannot go wrong with one of these scopes.

  • The rumors are true...

    By Yoder on 12/15/2016

    Look no further for a scope if you're wanting to spend under $500 for a scope and plan to shoot at medium to extended ranges. This is a rugged, reliable tracking, matching MIL/MIL reticle and turret optic with good optical clarity. There are countless reviews and discussions on this optic on YouTube and forums online so feel free to spend time there if you need any other assurances... this is a winner and nobody should be without 1 or 2 of these scopes. YMMV
