Anybody have experience with these? Been looking at the 5 series bit their pretty new still so I'm hesitant.

I have the 3-18 and had the 3-24 and really like them. They are an absolute steal at current midway prices. Comparable to dmr II with slightly better glass. Bushy turrets are a tad better.

I have one, really like it. It’s on my 22 and has regularly been ran up and down out to 500 yards.
It passes the box test, repeats excellent, it is Japanese glass is good.
Midway prices are hard to pass up, buy with confidence. My only complaint is the turrets are not as positive as a nightforce or leupold but it does repeat well.

It’s pretty small if you wear glasses I doubt you could make it out.
That’s the downside with FFP you have to have some magnification to make it work well unless you spen a fortune on S&B, nightforce etc..

Got my $299 scope today. Like everything but the annoying slop in the turret. Not sure if its cap or what. Glass is nice and Japan mfg is rare at that price.
