This scope sits on my coyote rig (heavy bbl AR15) and has taken a serious beating in all kinds of weather. I've beaten it off trees while going through forests, fallen down on it, hung it up on branches, it's been in a freezing cold creek, it's even been bounced off pavement (accident, I was handing it to a friend and he didn't quite have it in his hand yet). It came with rings that are mega-stout aluminum jobs, but I used those for a budget precision-rifle build I did (and they're great), and mounted the XTR-14 in an LT-104. It has served me extremely well and I see no reason to change it out or "upgrade" from it. The glass is clear enough that one day from a prone position, I was able to shoot 5 shots of FGMM into a hole smaller than a quarter at 300 yards. At that range, the lower dot (in the break of the horseshoe), although barely visible, was small enough to block out the point of impact. But still, it happened. This is a great scope and i really would've paid more money for it. I think it was a great deal when I bought it as an "open-box buy" at $550 (with the Fastfire, which I mounted to an AK, which my cat knocked over and it immediately shattered. If you're using a FF2, get the armored shroud for it). Burris's customer service isn't "bad", but by comparison to some other manufacturers in the hobby, they leave a bit to be desired for sure. I could care less though, the way this thing is built, it'll never have to go back anyway. It's a little tank.
Pros: TOUGH, excellent glass, holds zero no matter what, hash marks are true to distance, works great as a red-dot
Cons: Buy 2032 batteries in bulk, you'll need them.
