Millet 4-16x50 tactical scope

by WAHLMAN 223, from United States, AZ Written on July 31, 2014
I replace a Nikon M223 on my AR 15 with this Millett scope. Installation and setup was very easy. I like the Optics better on the Millett. Bore sited with 223 laser at 50 yards went to the range same day setup target at 50 yards. The first 3 shots where dead on center. Set a target at 100 yards 1st shot was 1/2" below bulls eye 2 clicks on elevation 3 more shots dead on again windage was perfect never had to adjust. Set up target at 300 yards 4 shots 3/4" low from center 3 clicks on elevation back on center never had to adjust windage again. This Millett scope was easy to sight in. I like the tall turrets parallax adjustment was great. The clarity at full power on scope was good at 300 yards. All my group shots where 1/2" to 3/4" this is on my reloaded 223 with 77gr. match bullet. I have Millet Long range scopes on my 50 Cal sniper rifle and AR 10. Very happy with the Millett scopes.

I had no issue with Nikon scope just wanted to try the Millett on my AR 15. Its is very good choice very impress with Millett scopes. If are thinking of buying Millett scope you will not be disappointed....
Pros:
  • Excellent scope for the money
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • Long range/prone shots
Would recommend: Yes

Great scope for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, PA Written on June 22, 2014
This is a good entry level scope for long range shooting. The glass is good when compared to others in its price range. The illumination is nice and works well. The turret clicks are not very precise. The adj. eye doesn't have a lock ring and it wobbles quite a bit when turned out. The image does move with they eyepiece. Not sure how much it was affecting accuracy but it can't be good. When on the highest magnification the glass seems to get a little cloudy and the eye relief becomes very sensative. Overall decent scope with lots of features for the price.
Pros: Lots of features
Cons: Non locking eyepiece ...
Would recommend: Yes

Millett TRS-1 4-16X - 50mm on a Savage .308

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on April 11, 2014
I mounted this scope on a savage 10 FCP-SR .308, with Burris XTR Low rings and an EGW steel picatinny base. Ended up perfect, low as possible without contacting the barrel, about a 1/4" clearance.

This scope is a great value, very clear glass and rock solid construction. Included flip caps are a little cheap. The larger objective lens does not fit Butler Creek covers. I bought both the size 43 and 44, they are too small and too big. The smaller (eye side) fits the Butler Creek listed on the Millett website.

It is somewhat heavy but this is not a scope you buy for light rifles anyway. It has a better manual available free on the Millett website.

Definitely worth the money, especially if you don't want to spend a grand+ on a rifle scope.
Pros: Awesome Overall Value!
Cons: A little hazy at high maginfication 14X+...

Good Low Price Tactical Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on February 10, 2014
If this scope was available with a 0-800 yard trajectory compensating turret for the 7.62x51 Nato 168 gr HPBT load similar to the one offered on the Nikon M-308 Nikoplex Model I would have rated this scope all 5s. As it is right now more pricice trajectory adjustments are possible, but needlessly tedious.

Pros: The right product at the right price
Cons: Chepo lens covers...

My husband was sighting in his gun, 1 week before hunting season, and accidently left his rifle on the back of his trailer and drove off, he went on dirt roads and the hwy. Well the gun fell off and was lost, it was turned in and the scope had a few scuffs on the dial, he tried it out and it was still right on target even after falling off a trailer hitch. Tough scope, also it was lost for over 3 weeks being rained etc.... Noxon, Montana...

not the best

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, SD Written on October 13, 2013
i thought i would give this scope a try. for the money its not the worst scope in the world but there are a few things i dont like. the glass isnt bad given the price but on the higher powers it leaves a lot to be desired. eye relief get very touchy and it gets fuzzy and a little milky. no matter how you set the paralax it just dosnt get very clear. the turret clicks are rough and the clicks dont feel good at all. it dosnt have good feedback when you are on the clicks or between them. the turrets also have spots in the rotation that get really sticky and extra rough. the tracking isnt the worst out there but it is not at all the best. the retical in my scope was not true to the body. i never could get it squared up to the rifle. if your looking for a good long range scope you can always go to the old saying you get what you pay for. spend the money and buy something good right away
Pros: price
Cons: tracking-turret adjustment...
Would recommend: No

Millet 4-16x40

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on September 25, 2013
I ordered the scope on 9/11/13 I had not heard a thing as of 9/19 I called and the in stock scope I ordered had not shipped do to internal problems at optics planet(new warehouse ) . So I was assured it would ship next day . 2 days later I get a ups notification it shipped. Today is 9/25 and I got the package it consisted of scope rings only! I called customer support and I was told that all they could do was enter the info into the computer to there internal investigations department and it could take a few days. At this point I am pissed and the rude guy on the phone has taken me there quickly! Thanks Kirill from customer support.
So I check product availability on there website and it still says in stock. I also checked my order status online and it says shipped on the rings and order pending on the scope? Thanks for all the useless customer support Optics Planet. You have mis handled this same order twice and I am still waiting... I don't care about the warehouse or your internal issues your customer service is poor at best! I wonder how you handle defects or returns? Heck I can't get a straight answer on a in stock order after 3 attempts.
Pros: Good reviews
Cons: Have never received from optics planet. ...
