Does anyone have one of these or have at least seen one? I have went to my local store but they are still out?
What is your opinion on it? Is the illumination worth the extra cost for just the center?

Thanks,

The SHV scopes are freakin' awesome. I have installed several on customer rifles, and I really like them. I have one now in the shop that I'd like to put on one of my rifles. It's a 4-14. I like the compact turrets and being able to put a threaded scope cap over the turret. The reticles are also very nice.

A friend of mine just got one this week. He hasn't mounted it yet but was impressed with the feel, reticle and clarity. If the SHV tracks like the NXS it should be awesome!

Sorry for jumping in on your post I to have been looking at the 5-20 with the zeroset for my 6.5 creed.Just wondering whats the difference in zeroset and zerostop? I had read somewhere where someone had said that the turret hash marks do not align through the rotation of the turret. Has anyone had this problem?

Zero Set is the same as Zero Stop, They just call it something different to separate it from the Zero Stop on the NXS, they call it Zero Hold on the ATACR. Different turret set ups on the three.

These are some fantastic optics, if you don't mind the 30+oz weight, you would have to look hard to find a better optic for the $$

Contact Keefer at Eruoptics, he'll take care of you.
