Have the Minox as well as a Revolution. Hands down, to my eyes, the Minox is the better choice. Have a FFII and like KR stated, the eye relief is a little short. Never have been bitten by the Vortex bug.
My Minox is on a 30-06. The Revolution is on a Savage 99 243. Both work but I like the ergonomics and the glass on the Minox better.
Pay it forward - Kids are the future.
Rifles are similar to boats and young women...there's no end to how much money you can pour into them without making them any more useful.
