|I was like several others here. I read all these rave reviews but I was still concerned about the name and the price. But, I needed a better scope for my Sig Sauer M400 SRP. After reading and rereading these reviews, I decided to take the plunge.
Glad I did. The optics are very clear, adjustments are great. You don't need to unscrew caps to dial it in. Both W/E and Reticle knobs have large lettering and arrows. The Reticle knob on mine is a bit stiff, so I've already ordered the SWAT big wheels for it. I mounted it at home without a boresight, but it still dialed in pretty quickly
I've only had it out once to sight it in, but that process was pretty quick. My range time that day was limited. All total I was able to fire only about 75 rounds that day, and from only 50 yards. Shot groups were consistently pretty tight (3/8") sitting at a flimsy card table in 15 mph gusts using my bipod with cheap ammo (Federal 55 grain bulk .223).
So far the included rings have held tight, but I think I'm going to change them out for some taller ones so I can access my charging handle better. Also the front lens cap just rubs against the handguard as it closes. It doesn't keep the cap from closing, so I'm not going to worry about it. If anything, the friction will help keep the cap closed.
Also, I read reports on here about the rear lens cap coming off. Mine is attached ok. The cap has a hinge pin, and the mount on the ring side of the cap is where the problem seems to lie as it's a little wider than necessary, allowing it to wobble somewhat. Questionable whether or not it will stay attached, but hey, they have to make compromises on a $99.00 scope. I'm happy those compromises are in the lens cap and not anywhere else. So far no issues with it and I've had the cap off a few times to adjust the focus. No issues otherwise.
Crosshairs were crisp. Illumination on a bright day was somewhat washed out, but the optics allowed so much light down the 30mm tube, on those days you don't need illumination. I think the 36 colors may be a bit on the bling side, but Red/Green don't work for everyone, so you've got 34 more choices to find a color that works for you.
All in All, I think you'd be hard pressed to beat this scope for the amount you spend. I have a friend who has an identical Sig M400, and after trying my scope, came here to buy one and I guess I got the last one as now they're on backorder.|
