I took it out last month and am very happy with the VXR Patrol scope. Yes I did change out my SS 1-4x scope. I wanted a little more power and the SS really wasn’t doing it for me. I was not to fond of the SS reticle and how thick the lines were, it seemed like it took up most of the glass.
- The glass quality on the VXR Patrol is extremely clear, sharp, high resolution and bright. I was quite surprised how good the glass was in low light
- The illumination system works very well, with just a small dot that lights up at the center crosshair
- I like the low profile exposed mil turrets
- For me I can easily keep both eyes open while looking through it when it is set on low magnification
It is a lot of scope for ~550 dollars and would recommend it to anyone who is in the market for a mid-range scope.
