2 Year Review
on January 29, 2017
I have had this product for two years. It has been mounted on both a .22 LR rifle, as well as a .22 caliber air rifle (spring powered). In my time with this scope, I have identified a few pros and cons.
-The scope is well built and durable. After 2 years of regular and rugged use, I have never encountered any function issues with the scope or the QD rings. In addition to regular knocks, jolts, and scrapes, it is able to withstand the recoil of a spring powered air rifle (the bilateral forces of a spring piston are notorious for destroying good firearm scopes).
-The optics are clear, and more than acceptable for the price point.
-The adjustable objective and magnification settings are very user friendly.
-Due to the compact size of this scope and its limited eye relief, I have never been able to shoot from a relaxed shooting stance. Regardless of the host of this scope, I have always found myself uncomfortable with how far I have to lean in to get proper eye relief.
Summary: The quality of the scope is more than satisfactory. I have put the scope through a lot, and it has never let me down. And, due to the limited eye relief and compact nature of the scope, it has really never been quite right for me. If I could go back, I would have gotten the full length 3-9X from the same manufacturer.
Additional Note: I have never felt the need to use the illuminated reticle feature, and consequently cannot comment on the function of this feature. Rest assured however, the scope functions just fine without a battery.
