Great scope but has some things to be aware of...
May 2, 2018
Great Scope! Super nice glass, and perfect scope for an AR type rifle. I had a couple issues during a training class however.
First, I could not get the fire dot to light up consistently. Would shut off at the worst times. I found out the problem was I had tightened the cap down too tight. Once I loosened the cap a bit all has worked perfectly ever since. Seems weird that there is no stop of some kind to avoid that. I did not over-tighten it in my opinion the first time, but apparently so...
Second, in walking back and forth from targets I realized I was somehow hitting the adjustment knobs with my knee while slung (I think). Easy enough to figure out one I noticed that the knob was not set at zero but I did have point of impact inconsistancy before I noticed that. Beware. You REALLY (REALLY!) need to zero the knobs or you won't know where zero is if you bump these knobs. Zeroing the knobs is easy, just make sure you do it on any scope with exposed knobs like this.
I am happy with the scope now that I know these two things, and expect this to last a lifetime like any leupold. I gave it 4 stars only mainly because of the lack of a cap stop but would be a 5 otherwise.
