iTrader: 8 / 100%

I have been reading and looking at almost all of the optics mfg's. I am going to build some long range rifle setups 2 to 3 different calibers.

I have already purchased one set-up in 6.5x284 NORMA and have purchased a Nightforce scope for it but on the other two I want to try out a couple less expensive ones and I know you get what you pay for most of the times but I have also in the past gone the cheaper route and still was pleasantly surprised.

One of the less expensive scopes I'm considering is a Millett 6-25x56 Illuminated Riflescope - Mil-Dot Bar Reticle, Matte Black BK81006.

I understand some of the things it lacks is FFP & Zero-Stop. But for $454.00 I think it might be worth the money.

Does anyone own one that would like to speak up?

Would like to hear reviews from owners and not opinions of people who just like to put in their two-cents.

Ive sold them to owners who are putting them on everything from 223's to 50 BMG's. I dont recall ever seeing one come back with issues. Millett has their warranty which is a good one as well.

Only issue is the rings it comes with are too high for most platforms. easy remedy though, get the Millett 35mm tactical rings in a high height, possibly medium, in addition to your order.

we sell quite a few of them and many customers do come back for a second one for other platforms as well. as you pointed out, for the price you are getting a lot.
