Nice kit, good price, HEAVY scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on May 18, 2014
This is a VERY cool looking scope that will perfectly match the style of any AR15 or an M&P 15-22. In all honesty, I'm sure that's the #1 reason anybody would purchase this scope, since there are a number of other scopes that share similar features and magnification, for less money, and with a LOT less weight. This is a VERY heavy scope, the heaviest scope of this type I've ever see. When you pick it up, you'll be shocked by how heavy it is, even if you're prepared for it in advance.

Setting aside the weight, the optics are very clear, and the illumination is very bright. It has, I believe, 7 different illumination settings, or you can turn the illumination off. I did notice that the reticle was off by about 5 degrees when I mounted it on the gun. To solve this you have to loosen the housing that surrounds the scope with the picatinny rails, using the Allen wrench provided in the box, then you have to try and adjust it so that it's level. I did notice that the illumination inside the scope is not entirely even. You can tell that the light source is coming from one side and that it isn't distributed evenly, particularly at lower illumination settings. Not a big deal though.

Ncstar 3-9X42 Compact Scope, 3 Rail Sighting System

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on March 7, 2013
Mounted on an AR-15. Like the scope, seems to hold zero, love the illuminated rectical and the fact that you can mount a red dot or whatever on the top or sides. Mounted a red dot on top and it is very accessible when you need it. Love the set up.
Pros: Cheap and easy to mount
Cons: None Yet...

my 5 cents

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on June 2, 2012
i liked the tri rail system on scope! i took a chance on it and it was worht it! although it is a little on the heavy side and 1-11 settings on light is not much difference it is a well made scope for the price. i bought it for my remington r-15 vtr carbine, and it met expectations. it was easy to attach and it can take a bump! i put on a red dot sight on top and a kill light xlr 250 on the side. took it out at night and i did not even need to turn on my blue illumination.. saw targets from over a 100 yards away easily... must try on a night with no moon! it is a very adaptable scope and rugged! night creatures beware!
Pros: great design
Cons: weight...
