This was my first Leupold scope utilized on my AR15 platform. I highly recommend the firedot green reticle as it will assist in all lighting situations. Overall the scope is light, easy to dial-in, and optics are very clear. A great first scope that I know I will utilize for a very long time. If you are into target ranges for practice and/or hunting, I do not see any reason you can go wrong with this purchase. I will likely upgrade to a 3x9 leupold but I would never sell this one.
