I have had this scope on my Rock River Arms LAR-8 and put hundreds of rounds through it using this scope. So far, this scope has performed wonderfully and has kept a dead on zero. Optics are very clear in daylight, even at full magnification. I have not used it as much in darker conditions, but when I have, it does seem to work alright in lower light conditions, although the image does darken up a bit at high magnifications.
The illumination is not implemeted very well. The illumination is inconsistent across the reticle, with it much brighter in some parts of the reticle compared to other parts of the the reticle. Also, there doesn't seem to be much difference in the brightness of the reticle when using the seven different brightness settings. They all appear to be about the same in terms of illumination levels.
But, since I primarily shoot in the daylight, the illumination does not bother me at all since I rarely use it. If the illumination performance is a key consideration, you may want a different scope, but if you want a very accurate, clear scope, I would defintely recoomend this scope for the money.
Pros: Clear Image; Keeps Zero Very Well
Cons: Illumination is Poorly Implemented; Little to No variation in Brightness in Illumination...
Would recommend: Yes
