Decent value

by Orlando, from United States, AL Written on October 23, 2014
I returned this scope because I realized I need to spend more money for the features I want. Since I never mounted the scope I will just talk about the basics. Also, the only scope I own is a Leupold 4-12 so I don't have much experience with a variety of optics. Starting with the finish on this scope, it's rather poor, when it arrived it looked worn as if the coating wasn't going to last very long. It seems like the finish was compromised so you could get great optics at a decent price. The glass is pretty decent compared to my +$1000 Leupold but there are still some significant flaws. I don't know if the scope is truly 1x or if the fish eye type distortion makes it seem less like 1x but I couldn't really get the scope to function as a true red dot (both eyes open operation). I have an eotech and at 1x this did not operate like an eotech, although to be fair, even $1000 1-4x scopes have trouble operating like a red dot (or so I've read). The clarity of the image was good and the reticle is clean and crisp both illuminated and non-illuminated. The 3" eye relief and small exit pupil were the last straw for me. There is a lot of blinking if you are not lined up perfectly which is fine if you're shooting from a bench. Ultimately I was looking for a 1-4x that I could use as a red dot in mobile shooting scenarios so I had to return this product. I don't have many rifles so when I buy a scope I need it too accomplish a lot. As I said before I didn't mount or use this scope so I neve...

Best in its class

by King of the North, from United States, MN Written on September 1, 2014
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...

cmr4 do not buy poor customer service

by fed, from United States, CA Written on August 1, 2014
Car 4 does not cover particles in scope under warranty , witch is crazy for a $400+ scope. And mine was full of particles witch basically made the scope useless do not buy this p.o.s.to be clear it looked good when I got it but after a few trips to the range I started noticing particles in the scope to late to return to optics planet and not covered by the "lifetime warranty" to make things worse they light up when illumination is on so you see them even more clearly , and there are a lot of them .but other than that the scope works great :-(...

leatherwood hi-lux cmr4

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 20, 2014
i really like the reticle its informative with cqb on the bigger circle and 1moa dot to 100yards plus.. just wish it has day time red dot. but at dusk/night cqb illumination is awesome. the glass is pretty clear compare to others at this price range. hope they make 1-8power with 1moa dot and horse shoe illuminated only at day/night time.
Pros: clear glass, sleek, value for the money, awesome reticle
Cons: a bit heavy. no red dot. too tight dial on light rheostat....
