Traditions A1151 Pistol Scope

by Lance, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on February 9, 2014
I purchased this while on sale and with discount for $85 from Optics Planet and I am very happy with this scope.
What you would want to Know.
First of all, it does not come as pictured with scope rings, but does come with see thru eye piece covers connected by elastic cord. The Front cover (30mm) is clear and back cover (45mm) has light yellow tint. Mounting distance is 3.5 inches with 1 inch tube. Weight is 10.4 ounces and scope length is 8.66 inches.
It has a Duplex reticle which is probably a medium duplex , not light and not heavy. As it is a Pistol scope the eye relief is 17 inches. I have this mounted as a Scout Scope on a Ruger Mini-30 with about 12 inches for the eye relief and find that it works well for me. The lens picture is clear with a slight distortion around the edges, but not noticeable if you are concentrating on the cross hairs & the target. With the magnification set to 1x (no magnification) it can be used with both eyes as a sight. With the magnification set to 2x - 4x I can also use it for a scope when need be. I assume parallax is set to 50 yards, but because I am using this as a scout mounted scope I find that it shoulders on line with the optical axis very quickly & naturally. I have not shot and zeroed it in yet but will update this review later when I do so if there is any kind of a problem (such as losing zero).

Pros: Nice size Eyepiece, light weight, viewing 1x (as sight) and 2x-4x (as scope), well designed & constructed, reasonably ...
Would recommend: Yes
