Great scope for the price. A poor man's ACOG!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NcSTAR® 4x32 mm Mark III Illuminated Reticle Tactical Scope Weaver / Picatinny Mount (Misc.)I had this scope for more than 3 months now and i have no problem with it. I originally got this scope for my newly purchased SCAR-Light-16s in .223 Remington/5.56 NATO semi-auto rifle made by FNH-USA. The reason i went for this scope in the first place is because buying the new rifle really took a chunk out of my savings (over $2300) and i really do not have the extra cash to buy a EOtech/Aimpoint/ACOG types of quality scopes. I ended up surfing the internet looking for a scope for my new rifle, then i found this baby! I want to make it clear to everyone right now, if you have the money/resource to put a Eotech/Aimpoint/ACOG on your rifle, i say 100% go for these quality sights and do not even bother with the Ncstar, but if you are like me who can not afford to own any of these sights in the near future or at all this is the scope for you.
I will use to Pros and Cons to break down this scope for you.
Pros: 1. Quick release with throw lever, you can take this scope off in under 5 secs and put it back on just as quick.
2. It will not lose zero as long as you put it back on the same rail location (in my case i use the number on the rail as reference and made sure i put it back on the same rail location every time)and it holds zero after 1500 rounds and 3 months with constant use still rock solid.
3. Clear optics even in cloudy weather or sunset hours. 1/4 MOA adjustment is great for a tactical scope.
I was able to shoot sub-MOA group with this scope with variety of match grade ammunition with a bi-pod at the bench,Prvi-Partazan 0.95moa, BLACK HILL 0.88moa, Hornaday 0.85moa.
Cons: 1. Eye relief is listed at 3 1/2 inches, i measure it at least for me it is more like 2 1/2 inches eye relief. This not that much of a problem for me at least because my FN-SCAR have flip up front and rear sights and 6 position adjustable stock i was able to installed the sight very close to my eye, This can be a problem for some users who can not install the sight that far back.
2. The battery powered illumination is quite useless for me at least. I felt it is too bright even at lower sittings, but that's just me, others might find it useful.
well that's all for this review. I recommend this scope for anyone on a budget, but still need a decent scope for target shooting and hunting or saving up to buy a quality scope.

What kind of rail does this fit on?

Standard Pictanny rail that you see everywhere, MAGPUL,TAPCO, TROY, Primary arms, ......ETC pretty much every AR-15 makers use the same rail, not to mention any other rifle's accessories maker.
