Does the job

by Nergy, from United States, NM Written on October 9, 2014
First saw this at a gun show in Albuquerque. Appreciated the 3" eye relief and the easy mounting. Bought a second one a month later. Actually had serious issues with the first scope. It wouldn't hold zero and the up/down adjustment came unglued. Sent it back to NcStar and received a brand new one in a week - excellent customer service on the phone and, in actuality. Mounted one scope on an AK and the other on an AR. Both have held zero through over 200 rounds and, there have been no further issues with functionality.

Optics are clear throughout the magnification spectrum (2x-7x) even with my old eyes. The BDC adjustment is accurate and useful at settings 1 and 2 for the AK and AR. BDC 3 & 4 are only useful on the AR. Reticle lines are so close they are almost obscuring. Believe that's an unpreventable issue with such a small scope (32mm objective). Probably a simple crosshair would be best given that the BDC does work and, at up to 200 yds., it's not at all difficult to anticipate windage/elevation adjustments on the fly. Can rapidly and accurately empty a 30 round magazine into a 6" target zone - certainly no negative offsets from the scope. Deliberately dropped the scope mounted rifles numerous times. Both of the scopes are shock proof....
Pros:
  • Clear optics
  • light weight
  • Great customer service
  • Easy mounting
  • Is indeed shock proof
  • Fairly priced
  • Looks cool
  • Practical scope
Cons:
  • Coarse crosshairs obscure target
  • Plan on using the warranty
Best Used for:
  • plinking
  • tactical practice
Would recommend: Yes

This is an OK scope for the money. It's definitely not comparable to a high end optic. It has neat usable features suck as the BDC and the IR but the IR is too bright and the 3 dimming settings don't change the brightness at all. Also the colors are blue and green which are the worst colors for your eyes at low light. Red would be a great color. Also you can see the light from the front of the scope when IR is on which is not practical.
The quick detach works great. It's nice and tight and it has a locking feature which prevents it from coming undone or falling off the gun.
The BDC seems to work pretty well initially but I've yet to test it at any great distance.
The biggest issue I had with this scope is that it lost zero after less than 100 rounds were put through it.
At the end of our session the rounds were going 2in down and 2in left of center. With the way the scope is set up it was a fast easy fix and maybe next session it will be broken in and not lose zero. We'll see.
If you're on a budget then this is a great scope to start with.
Pros: Great features, quick detach, bullet drop compensator,
Cons: easily loses zero, illuminated recticle too bright, ...
Would recommend: Yes
