GREAT OPTIC

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MA Written on March 20, 2014
I have used and owned many scopes over the past 30 years. This is my second CMR. The first (Red)I purchased used and abused as a curiosity. Over the past two years, that CMR has never let me down. I recently decided to buy another, only this time a new one with Green illumination. You know opinions, reviews etc. tend to be subjective. Everybody has an opinion. You know some are simply silly. Others make no sense at all. I have been a LEO for the past 28 years with all sorts of training. Also prior military. For what it's worth here's my two cents: One would be hard pressed to find a better 1-4 optic of this type at any price. What we have here is a rugged, clear, and easy to use scope. It' as good as any brand at any price. I have no problem utilizing this scope on a weapon to which I would be putting my life on the line!!! Things like: "It doesn't have enough light in daytime." or It's made in China" are a little silly in todays world. I think that if China can put a satellite into space, build a modern jet fighter, construct your I-Phone, TV etc. etc. They can certainly build a simple rifle scope. The only question is what is one willing to pay? There are already plenty of $1000.00 scopes on the market. If one like paying that sort of money for a scope; well it's your money. As for me I still like my reliable Toyota over the Mercedes and BMW. Don't be fooled into thinking your getting something magical just because you paid crazy money for it. Need a 1-4 type...

Amazing price for a good piece of glass

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on January 22, 2014
Like most 1-4 or 1-6, the 1x isn't a true 1x. But it's close enough to use with both eyes open. I love the reticle. You have a center dot with ring. Unlike the red dots from eotech, aimpoint, etc, if the batteries die, you still have the black reticle. I would recommended this for a great budget optic paired with the Burris PERR 30mm or American Defense 30mm recon mount....

Addition to my previous review on Jan 10, 2014

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IN Written on January 12, 2014
Emailed Leatherwood regarding the rheostat questions and procedure on moving the scope to another gun and got a reply quickly from the CEO - within an hour - surprised me... The answers:
The NV and positions 2 thru 3 are only for low light conditions. When moving the scope to another gun, you can reset the turrets to factory optical and physical zero but must first unlock them by loosening the turret locking screws. Then, after adjustments are done, move the bottom index rings to their zero marks, tighten the locking screws.
Pros: Good quality, good factory support...
Would recommend: Yes

Good scope for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IN Written on January 10, 2014
Scope showed up when promised and in pristine condition (it was not a refurb and not blemished).
The factory scope box was contained in a plain brown outer box. Scope was complete with enclosure in unwrinkled plastic bag, 2 CR2032 batteries, turret allen wrench, instruction manual, lens cloth, lens caps.
The scope itself seems rugged and well built for the money - made in China. The finish is flat black and flawless. The scope is a little heavy but that reinforces its feel of strength.
Lenses were clear and showed good light gathering properties; no dust or dirt on the insides of them. In daylight, the components of the reticle are just right - not too big - not too small - adequately visible.
The turrets are firm but easy to turn with audible clicks and detents.
The supplied allen wrench for unlocking the turrets fits their allen locking screws loosely but does work without damaging the screw heads; I found that my 2.5mm Craftsman allen wrench fits more snugly.
The optic power ring is firm and turns easily.
The cap for the battery compartment is another matter. It took me 15 minutes of effort and the right words to screw the cap back on after inserting the battery. The threads on the cap are very fine but poorly cut. I finally found that if I used the thumb and forefinger of one hand to stabilize/flatten the cap on the compartment and then twisted it with the thumb and forefinger of the other hand, it would grudgingly screw on. After that effort, some of the...

You won't like the way it looks in sunlight

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AZ Written on December 22, 2013
I thought it was a defective scope when the red center of the optic would not show up in the sunlight even with changing to a new battery. Optic Planet inspected it and said it was not defective and therefore i am stuck with a scope that works as it should only on cloudy days and from dusk to twilight.
Pros: good optic
Cons: Red circle and bars and dots completely fade out in sunlight...

200 meters? Do you know how to shoot?

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 18, 2013
I now have had a chance to take this Scope out and shoot it, The mill markings make it easy to range, Worked up a good table on a type E standard target, It was good to go to 800 meters, If you can hold it, It will deliver, Who ever said good to 200, Needs top do some real shooting, In dailight, If you can see it, You can hit it.
Pros: Great Reticle Will Shoot to max range of reticle 800 meters
Cons: For the money none I can find....

Great Product

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 25, 2013
I own some NightForce scope that cost 10 times what this little scope costs. This one is a great little scope. I shoot with this scope easily 300 yrds with my AR 15. Could easily shoot farther and will next time out.
Pros: Good optics- Clear
Cons: None...

None better for the Money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 24, 2013
This is a very good scope for the money, I have read reviews that claim the reticle is not evenly illuminated, That is not true, In low light situation and the dark, the reticle in evenly illuminated, just the way it should be, If you are trying to use the illumination feature in day light it is the etched reticle that you are seeing superimposed over the illumnated reticle that is causing that.

Every thing being equal, Learn when You need illumination and when you don't, Other than that You are getting a far better scope for the money than you are paying for.
Pros: Good clear glass, Simple reticle, Solid build
Cons: None I can find....

Some What Disappointed

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VT Written on February 6, 2013
I was hoping to have a scope that could be used as a point and shoot because of the 1X magnification and lighted reticle. But as soon as you take the scope outdoors the light is washed out even on setting 11. So now youre looking at reticle with very fine lines and a tiny black dot in the center and that just blends in to the target. On top of that I ordered the red from optics planet and they sent green.
Pros: Well Built
Cons: Lighted Recital is worthless in the daylight ...
