Pros:  Very good quality, clear optics, Positive control knobs
Cons:  Needs to be clearly marked with a reference dot on windage knob
Would recommend:  yes

I love my scope, so I will tell you just how I got mine set up with ease and how it all worked out so well. I have an Armalite M15A2 Natioal Match Rifle, free float hanguard and Stainless barrel. I purchased the carry handle tactical mount #MNT-990 to put the quick detatch mouted scope, NcSTAR #STP3942G (3-9x42 P4 Sniper). I was only able to bore sight with the old fashione method, at about 50 feet indoors, ie: take off the upper and put it into a rest, remove bolt assembly & Chg.handle. I lined up the bore with a dot on a door, dialed in my windage and elevation to the same dot, then reassembled my rifle. The next day I took it to the range. At 50 yards, I was still high, due to the scope being mounted so high above the barrel plain, but I just dialled it in under the top cap and moved on to 100 yard target. Again still high, but I just walked a pefectly straight line right down to the 10 ring. I got a couple of X-ring shots, but with only a 3-9 power scope I couldn't quite get close enough ...

I was pleasantly surprised when I received my scope. This will be installed on a heavy barreled AR-15 for shooting at ranges of 100-300 yards. Unlike some reviews this scope appeared to be free of defects. Reticle aligned, all knobs secure, attachment worked flawlessly. For the money, this is an excellent scope. Have another scope from this manufacturer and it has performed flawlessly for several thousand rounds. Expect the same from this one. Proves the old adage that you can't believe what you read, only what you see.

Nice scope for the money. The red dot that came with my package is, well it's junk. I gave mine to my cousin for his airsoft gun. Since i already invested in a quality red dot this was not an issue for me. As for the scope, it does what it says. Works great. I've only used it once since I bought it. While at the range it seemed as though after every shot the cross hairs would get blurry. I'm not sure if it's the scope or my eyes (as they were bothering me that day) Not really a problem as this comes with a lifetime warranty. Good scope over all.

This is good deal for a scope if you just want to plink. For serious target shooters or defensive use, this is not good enough. But for casual target shooting it's worth a shot due to the price.

Arrived from OP fairly quickly. Had to re-blue a few bare spots on the mount. Spent a lot of time and ammo trying to sight it in at the range before I realized that the allen set screw on the windage knob was loose and the windage knob was just spinning freely, having no affect on the windage adjustment. The knob eventually came off in my hand. That's when I realized the problem. (I was wondering why the knob was turning so smooth without clicks.) I was beginning to think I got one of the defective scopes I read about where windage could not be adjusted. Now I wonder if those reviewers had the same problem as me. I also noticed the cross hairs look to be a bit off. Like the scope was a bit twisted before they locked it into the mount. Unfortunately, I see no way to correct this at this stage. The cross hairs are a bit thick as well. Making shots past 100 yards would be difficult as the thick cross hairs would eventually cover the entire target. On the positive side; once I did get ...

Pros:  Cheap, Easy to Zero, Holds Zero, Accurate, Compact
Cons:  Not rugged like the ACOG, Needs Riser, Exposed Windage Knob, Have Loctite handy.
Would recommend:  yes

William Brooks wrote:

While I was in the Army, I was looking for a cheap alternative to an ACOG to use with my issued M4 (Uncle Sam is too cheap to provide anything decent). I dedicded to give this optic a try. I'll make this short and sweet. It was very easy to zero to my weapon. I shot expert at the qualification range the first time I tried it out. The view is crystal clear. It's compact and the eye relief is good. I was able to aquire and hit targets quickly and easily. Now, onto the cons. The windage knob sticks out like a sore thumb. Mark your dial with paint marker so you can readjust if the knob is turned by accident. Or else, you risk losing your zero. You are going to need a riser if you are using an M4/AR15 with a permanent front sight post. Not having one will distort the image through the sight to a noticeable degree. After some use, my rear lens cap came loose. I used loctite to repair. No big deal, but that's points off for quality. The illumination is cool, but I never really found any opportunities ...

Pros:  Quick Detach - Clear Sight Picture - Warrantee
Cons:  illuminated reticle - eye relief - bikini lens covers
Would recommend:  yes

BNYSE1 wrote:

This scope was shipped promtly by Optics Planet. It is packaged in a very nice box and has adequete instructions. This scope went on an M&P 1522. The eye relief on this scope is really short, something like 2 inches. Most decent scopes are at least 3 inches which make a big difference when trying to view your target. At the range, weather was clear, temp about 70 and sun was intermittent. I noticed the illuminated reticle was kind of hard to see. It also appeared to have trouble staying illuminated during firing. Now this is only a 22 folks, so if this was trouble than I doubt this particular scope would be much use on a large cal. weapon. Sight picture is rather clear and pleasent, once you press your nose to the scope (because of the short eye relief.) LOL. I will try changing the battery in the scope and give it another shot. If it isn't any better I'll simply return the scope as it comes with a lifetime warrantee, huge!! As for installation on the flat top rail my 2 year old could do ...

A fine scope for the money. Easy to mount and easy to dial in. High mount affects bullet impact at varying ranges so you have to conscience of the parallax and adjust.
