I bought this scope after having put a Leupold on my AR and was not disappointed. This scope sits on my Savage 12BVSS in 22-250 and it as very bright and crystal clear. I would say that optically it is a good match to the Leupolds - and why shouldn't it be? Nikon is a leading lens maker in the photographic field. The Nikon saved me a considerable amount of cash over similarly featured Leupold scopes.
Installed like any other scope installs and looks good on my rifle.
I am done with buying cheap scopes that are hazy, dim, and present a distorted sight picture.
Pros: bright and sharp
