I finally got this mounted and took it out a couple times at high noon, sunset & dark. This is also my first piece of glass on my first bolt action. I am no authority but I can tell you what I have experienced. First the tritium dot; when you take this out of the box I would highly recommend you wait till it is dark out to give it a look; that is its main purpose after all. I have read many people suggest that it is faint or that it not noticeable. I have viewed this dot in the woods & urban area at and after dusk and I assure you this dot is more than adequate from my perspective; that being that I do not want a reticle in low light & dark to be as sharp as my target. The fiber optic on this girl is amazing to the point of glaring with direct sun exposure, so the brightness adjustment on the scope is great and a useful amenity. The view at 3x - 9x is crystal clear and worth the price alone to me. The eye relief does shorten up at full zoom but not to the point where your FOV is unmanageable. I will say that I utilize the BAC concept ability (both eyes open) when shooting this scope as it was designed as such. This however can be hard to get use to if you never have and are opposite dominate eye from your shooting position. If it doesn't work for you the good ole one eye shut will work as it has for ages. The craftsmanship and materials can be seen out the box and felt with the weight no let down there but I did not expect to be either, it is a Trijicon after all constructed in America by America's who take pride in their product. (No I do not get checks from them but I do buy their products). I was very satisfied felt I got my money's worth and some. I would buy this sight again with no regret; you really cannot go wrong and I feel as a first scope I did a great job. (This was the Mil-Dot Reticle w/ Green Dot primary use and review was based on 100-300 yards target acquisition)
