I compared this to the new Nikon M-223 2-8x32, Leupold Mark AR 3-9x40, and Nikon Monarch 2.5-10x42. At the same power settings 8x on the Nikon, 9x on the Leupold, and 10x on the Monarch, this scope is more clear. Brightness is about the same as the Monarch and Mark AR. Turrets feel better, click better, and the PA is perfect for what it's needed for. Mounted on Bushmaster AR flat top with RRA Hi-Rise mount. Sighted at 100 yards and putting 3 shots at about 1 to 1.5 MOA (I'm using PMC and Lake City XM193's at the range, so not too bad for cheap ammo) on a bag rest. Shot about 70 rounds through and scope stayed dead on. Being to Zero set the turrets with a lift and turn and back to zero is great. I bought the one with the regular plex reticles, just didn't see much sense in getting all the BDC stuff on a gun that I'm going to keep under 350 yards and probably 200 yards for the most part on varmits, coyotes, and other fun targets.
Pros: Clarity, Parallax Adjustment
