Hey BIL, what did you end up doing? I have sure been interested in the F1 as well, still a " new to the scene" optic. My wife offered to buy me one for Christmas, which kind of making me feel guilty, scope isn't cheap and compares well to the vortex gen 2, but much lighter ( and far less reticle choices).
I damn near pulled the trigger yesterday, then I sobered up a bit
What is getting me, is the fact that the F1 tunnels at around 5.5-7x, so effectively you are buying a 7x25
For just under 3k, they should have never released it with that problem, especially since it is /has a fix.
Other than that detail, me wants one
Love to have more scope than I know how to use and realize if I went with the MOARt, pretty much wont be allowed on Jasons range, so......
