Fire For Effect!
In researching this product before purchasing, I found very few customer reviews, and none of them were very detailed, so I hope the following will help someone else who may interested in this binocular.
I purchased this binocular primarily for use in the military, to practice adjusting indirect fire, some spotting, and for practice with range estimation.
I have also used them for nature observation and some casual birding. In the future I may also use them for concerts, sporting events, etc., to complement to my other binoculars (7x43 with ED glass) when I want a little extra magnification. I chose the Tactical 10x42 R model mainly because of the reticle, the design, optical quality, and its reasonable size and weight compared to Steiners porro prism military binoculars.
I tested my two binoculars side by side over a couple of weeks in the mountains of Utah. One day I might stay inside and watch birds at the feeder (I got to see a variety of smaller birds; sparrows, and jays; quite a number of turkeys and even a quail), and another day I might take the four-wheeler up the trail and hike to the top of a hill to look at the whole canyon. It was early Spring so I got to observe in snowy forested terrain sometimes as well as dry shrubby hills.
This binocular comes in a nice black case with a soft separator to keep them from rattling around inside, and there is a little extra room for accessories like a tripod adapter and some clean...
