Small, lightweight, easy to install & remove to transport - scope shipped a in padded cardboard box. Optics are pretty good right to the edges; bright and clear even in dim light. The sniper reticle has hatch marks on the vertical/horizontal crosshairs. Once you sight in at 100 yds, it's easy to determine 50, 75 yds by using the marks on the vertical axis; can't speak to the 200 to 400 yd turrent adjustment, my range is only 100 yds deep. Even in dim light no need to use the illuminated crosshairs. Honestly, for the money you can't ask for a better scope: it performs well for my puposes, plinking and punching holes in paper targets. With a properly tuned reload in my .223 I'm able to shoot an 1 1/2" pattern,off the bench, at 75 yds. Can't speak to long term durability, but .233's aren't too hard on scopes - probably last forever on a .22 (?)
Pros: Lightweight, compact, low profile, quik mount, finish matches AR, inexpensive
Cons: none encountered
