Summary: Not as sexy to look at, looking through this scope is better than life. As a superlative, its high price is justified. Deer, hogs, etc. jump out of the background. No more wondering until it moves if it is a deer or a bush. If it runs, at one power, swinging the rifle in time and on target is as easy as any open sight with an unequalled view.
Pros: quality of seeing, one power to 6 power, illuminated dot
Summary: This optic is truly outstanding in every sense. The true 1X is great for both eyes open fast acquisition. Zoom is smooth and further improved by adding a speed lever. The BRT reticle is a perfect match for the zoom range and use of this optic, and the choice of two illumination settings (each of which is customizable) is very helpful. The center dot illuminates cleanly with no halo or hazy edge, when set correctly.
Pros: True 1X, smooth/fast zoom, great clarity, excellent reticle
Summary: This scope is perfect for my club's 3 gun matches. Our maximum target is at 425 yards so the 6 power is perfect and the field of view is awesome. Likewise the 1 power is a true 1 power and tha is amazing. I had to take my front iron sight off the rail because at 1X it took up a lot of what I wanted to see in front of my rifle the field of view is so big. Normally you can't see the front iron sigh through a scope.
Pros: Close to midrange, illumination, BRT retical, Software
Summary: Truly a thing of beauty. Mounted using a GG&G bolt-on FLT riser on flat-top AR-15 receiver in forward most slot. Not too heavy for what you get. Illuminated reticle dot's brightness is VERY adjustable. One-Half rotation on speed ring smoothly changes magnification from 1x to 6x, with wide and clear field of view throughout. Shot 1/2-MOA groups with 6x at 100yds. Zeroed like a tackdriver.
Summary: You can't be the z6. With the true 1 power magnification you almost feel like your shooting with open sights. Very fast acquisition. Huge fov even at 6 power. Don't go cheap you will regret it. Optics planet is alway the best place to buy.
Pros: Clear, great light transmission. Solid durable
