I've used a great many mid-level optics (as well as some high-cost optics) over the last 3-4 years of so and this has been my favorite. It's not perfect, but it does enough of what I need it to do be a "go-to" optic for everything from 3-gun to home defense.
My biggest complaints are:
1) If you turn the illumination up too high in low light you'll get a great deal of reflection inside the tube. This can be worked around by simply selecting a lower brightness setting that's more appropriate for the ambient light.
2)While the eye relief is just fine, the eyebox is a bit on the tight side. Nothing that can't be worked around, but if you're used to working with something with a very forgiving eyebox like a Vortex Viper PST or a Trijicon Accupoint this might be a bit of an adjustment. This is easily remedied with a little practice, but all-the-same, a little more slop in the eyebox would be appreciated.
What I love about this scope:
1)The reticle is absolutely bonkers, in a good way. Once you get zeroed it's pretty much impossible to miss at known ranges. In fact when I zeroed at fifty yards using the top of the post below the center dot, I found that when I got out to the 100 yard line my dot was right on. On top of that the reticle is super fast. While probably not Eotech fast it's definitely quick enough for snap shots within 10 yards. The combination of precision and speed are what really make this scope a winner.
2) It's pretty tough. In the first few month...
