Just came in. Havent had much time to mess with it but did compare it to my Vortex PST and Zeiss Conquest. Glass is about the same as the Zeiss, being slightly better than Vortex PST. Really like the fact that elevation turret is exposed while windage is covered. From Jasons class, i learned there arent many situations where dialing windage is all that necessary and in practice i now realize that Ive never dialed wind.

Only complaint i have is the fact that illuminated reticle isnt that great. The full reticle doesnt illuminate. My old NXS and the PST had reticles that fully illuminate.

More to come once I have some time to actually use it. But at first glance it appears to be a good competitor to the PST or Burris. BTW, Brownells has them in stock and if you use code K4R you can get 10% off.

The less illumination there is on the reticle, the less the pupil will constrict. Thus, pupil is open wider allowing in more light from sources other than the reticle. Bet you like it in the long run. Nice scope. Please provide an update after it has been used for awhile. Congrats.

I barely had time to even look at it this weekend. Hopefully soon, otherwise I may need to send it off to you for an evaluation.

Let me know some possible days you can come out. I'll let you know if I'm going to be there or not. I'd like to play with the scope a bit, and then you can do what you like on the range the rest of the day.

Where did you purchase?

Does it have side focus?
