Use: Target shooting 200 yards / predator hunting. Platform: DPMS Panther 5.56 Oracle. Other Accessories: NcStar NC-FL-AQPTF LED Flashlight. I chose this scope to add a NcStar LED light. I can flip the light on and put rounds in the 10 ring at 50 yards in the dark. The light mounted to the scope instead of the hand guard is the key. No obstructions and the illumination is right where you need it.
Shooting at 100 yrds is effortless. 200 yrds feels like 100, so much so that we measured it to be sure (not kidding). Crystal clear optics and the ELECTRIC BLUE illumination are perfect on a black silhouette. Making 200 yard clusters easy with a 16 carbine. I dont have a fat wallet but I like good gear that makes up a system. This scope with a light on one side and a laser on the other is a sport tactical dream.
I own a black gun but Im a precision shooter. On 2X you can leave both eyes open with a little practice and raise into an quick accurate shot. On 7X lean in a little to compensate for the reduced eye relief and B.R.A.S.S. We really did measure the 200 yards at Daniel Boone Gun Club in Evansville IN. Great product! Amazing Price! Fast and Dependable service from Optics Planet!
The only Con was temporary. It was a finger eating machine to switch from 2x-7x the first week. It came in during a February cold snap. After a few days I was thinking of sending it back and I laid my gun in the case instead standing in the safe. The next day it was much easier. Over a week of making sure the scope was on a horizontal plane while I was at work, and a few turns to work the grease/graphite around inside of it both the illumination dial and the magnification selector became easy to use. Cant explain it but that is the way it worked out for me.
Pros: 3 usable rails. Light considering the application. Crystal Clear!!
Cons: tough to turn the knobs at first read the comments!!
