This scope was compared against a Leupold of like magnification and found to be quite inferior in terms of clarity and brightness in the upper range of it's magnification. It was intended to be mounted and used for patrol duty. This scope has no place as on a patrol weapon.
Due to the return policy of Optic Planet I did not mount the scope to check it's ability to hold zero. My opinion of this scope was based solely on clarity of the lenses, feel of the adjustment clicks (spongy, not crisp) and the mil-dots (too small for any low light work).
You do indeed get what you paid for. If your looking for a low priced Chinese scope, then here it is. If your looking for a true quality optics to put on a duty gun, then keep searching.
Pros: low cost
Cons: Heavy, Over 16" long, Poor Optic quality.
