So I took the plunge and tried one out and so far it's one of my favorite sights! I took it out of the box and it 0 fast, the clicks were stiff and seemed of high quality!The Glass appears clear and does not hurt your eyes even after shooting it all day. The bullet drop compensation is really set for meters not yards. When I shot it in the field it appeared to go higher and higher the further I got, using yards instead of meters 100m=109y. I tested it again today using 100 meters as the zero and then shooting 300m, 400m,and 500m and it appeared to be dead on! Not a precision type scope but for combat type use it appears to cover that 50-600 yards and will allow you to make center mass hits, but to make it complete I will add a Fast Fire 2 from Burris on top for 0-50 CQB. It's a great way to have ACOG and Eotech type sight pictures combined as one. It does not give you that CQB that an Aimpoint or Eotech would nor the clear glass that you would get through an ACOG but it does work good in both areas. Over all for the price I would give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Here is what I would change.

The eliminated dots and circle would have a low light setting.
I would allow the Tactical mounts to be taken off.
I would make the mount better and lighter.

Cool, thanks for the info. I have the 332 as well, but haven't tried it yet ( I wanted to get my iron sights sighted first, but haven't been able to get back to the range).

If you don't have a laser range finder 0 in at 109 yards. You ll love this thing it's great! At 100m I am able to shoot sub MOA. I am looking to add the fast fire next.

Good to hear! I was looking for something to swap out my scope for. Something a little more lightweight but still with a little magnification.

Like i said use meters not yards add a 9 to every 100 yards

That looks pretty cool, wonder how the bullet drop works with 62gn and higher 5.56 ammo??

I shot M193 and M855 through it and it's dead on. I am reloading 69gr SMK it has a higher BC so I ll need to 0 .5" at 100. Over all it works as advertised
