Pros: Well let me start things off by saying that I am a Police Officer so I am familiar with ARs and optics for them. I just sold my ACOG TA11 and purchased this Burris and all I can say is wow! I liked the ACOG by did not love it. This Burris is an absolute gem. Not only is the reticle crystal clear and the glass excellent, the 5 color settings for each green/red are excellent. The higher settings were perfect for sunny days while the lower settings are great for night or low light conditions. I don't think you could find a better optic for the money. Well done Burris.
Cons: I don't have any cons, I will say however, that a 5X magnification is not meant for close quarter combat, I knew that before purchasing the optic so it's a non-issue. If you want a close quarter optic, mount a reflex on the scope, best of both worlds.
