great value for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MN Written on November 18, 2012
I bought this light scope with a #4 reticle and really like it vs. the plex (basic cross hairs). It's mo0unted on top of a Ruger M77 that I converted to a 6.5CM. It shoots fantastic and the glass is very clear. This year I harvested a doe at close range 65 yards, but it was at 10min before 7 in legal light, but still on a dark overcast morning. The scope was excellent in the lower light for a smaller objective scope. Very crisp and clear. I like the windage and elevation knobs that are easy to read, adjust, and positive clicks. I like the caps on the knobs, they have positive contact and sturdy. I own Minox, Swarovski, and Leupold scopes. This scope easily passes Leupold in clarity and is on par with quality. It's not as clear as my Swarovski, but it's a fraction of the price. Two major options that set this scope apart is a 4" eye relief and a nice rubber armor or ring on the ocular. If you put this on a heavy magnum African rifle you won't have to worry about losing a chunk of skin if you scope yourself. Leupold doesn't do that on it's VX3's. Also it's hard to find a scope that goes from 1.5X8 range. If you turn this down to 1.5X you can easily shoot both eyes open and that's the power I had it on when I took my doe.
Pros: excellent glass quality and rubber eye cup
Cons: none yet...
Would recommend: Yes

Chicom Junk

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on April 13, 2012
Been through 4 of these, Now getting a full refund from Minox. Great power range and great glass. The rest of the scope is ChiCom Junk components. All 4 failed having the occular end get loose and wiggle back and forth. This would move the reticle and make holding zero impossible. This line will be around maybe another 2 years before returns and refunds kill it. ChiCom components mated with very good glass is a stupid idea and should have never came to market!!! The turrets are the worst I've ever seen worse than tasco. Clicks were null and more than mushy. This was on 4 different Minox scopes I think that is a pretty good sample..
Pros: good glass
Cons: everything else...
Would recommend: Yes
