How is the glass in that rig?
I haven't looked through one but I suspect it's the same scope as my 6-24x50 ET (no longer made) with just a couple of changes. I've used mine at 22x and it is pretty nice glass. There are 3-4 reviews on their site from verified buyers that all say the glass is very good.

Good scope for my Kidd Supergrade
Review by Gerardo F. on 3 May 2021 review stating Good scope for my Kidd Supergrade Good scope for .22 precision shooting. For the price, it performs like glass 2x as expensive. The glass is clear, the FPP reticle is uncluttered, and the side focus works down to 10 yards.

Review by Skip G. on 17 Apr 2021 review stating Match Pro advantages 30mm tube, 50mm objective lens, Deploy Mil reticle, large lockable distinct knobs, Bushnell quality lens manufactured and coatings. My opinions are based on deer hunting in Northwest Florida and South Alabama. Also 21 years as a reconnaissance Marine with two combat tours in the jungle of Viet Nam has great influence on my decisions.
Adhering to the basic marksmanship principles is the absolute foundation of target neutralizing. Nothing can compensate for poor position, pRead more about review stating Match Pro advantages 30mm tube, 50mm objective lens, Deploy Mil reticle, large lockable distinct knobs, Bushnell quality lens manufactured and coatings.
oor sight alignment, unstable cheek weld, poor trigger squeeze, and recoil anticipation.
"It ain't the weapon" Gertrud. It's the shooter. If you want to be a "dinger", you got to stick to the basics.
Tube size: Tube size does not increase low light capability by allowing more light into the scope. Tube size either limits or enhances the features incorporated inside the scope. Also the smaller the tube the smaller the elevation and windage adjustment knobs. Small knobs are difficult to manage when the adrenalin is pumping. In hunting, and competition, when the target presents itself the shooter must have everything adjusted and ready to engage.
Knobs: The knobs need to be large enough to allow the shooter to adjust them confidently, quickly, and accurately. When the desired number of clicks are set they must be locked in to prevent movement. Probably with gloves on. The clicks must be positive, distinct, and confidently discernable. Low light conditions prevent reading the numbers on the knobs visually. Discernable clicks is the solution to that problem.
Reticle: If the shooter plans to use "hold off" or "dope changes" is a major factor in choice of reticles. My Marine Corps background has taught me the DMR, christmas tree, illuminated reticle is my preferred deer hunting reticle. Dope changes can be made by feel, quickly and locked. Hold off is easy and quick.
Illuminated: is good for low light, however the intensity must be precise.
Long range: What is long range? In very general terms most food plot deer hunters become uncomfortable at ranges of 250 to 300 yards or greater. Generally a deer hunter considers 400 yards as "long range". Some of you purists will dispute that number. Whatever.
Objective lens: More often than not, when the target presents itself the lighting is far less than ideal. The target will present itself about an hour before the legal shooting limit in afternoon plot hunting. That equates to most shots will be in low light conditions. Lens manufacturing precision and coating is the most important factor in low light marksmanship. Larger objective lenses are the second most important. So the choice of 44mm, 50mm, or 56mm are the most popular options. Mounting complications and other factors influence the choice of objective lenses.So, take a good hard look at the specs on the Bushnell Match Pro. 30mm tube, 50mm objective lens, Deploy illuminated Mil reticle, large lockable distinct knobs, Bushnell quality lens manufactured and coatings. The bumping and banging, not to mention the mud and rain, that a deer hunter subjects his scope to requires an exceptional degree of robustness.
Add all of the above to frequent dry firing sessions practicing basic marksmanship principles and targets can be consistently neutralized.
There is not another scope out there that matches these qualities for this kind of money.

This is the first scope
Review by Greg R. on 20 Feb 2021 review stating
This is the first scope This is the first scope I’ve owned in this price range so nothing to compare to, but the difference between it and the less expensive Simmons scope it replaced is amazing. Very clear, focuses easy, and the reticle dots are going to be very useful. At 100 yards I can actually see my 22 bullet on the way to the target.

Review by Tim P. on 10 Aug 2020 review stating
Great scope I am very pleased with this scope. The perfect pairing with my Savage mkll TR. I have yet to find a single con, only likes. The dot is great. Very clear glass, and the turrets are crisp and positive. It is well made and should give me a lifetime of enjoyment. All thats left is for me to learn to utilize its potential.
