At this price, who can complain?

For what it costs, this is an absolutely amazing optic. I’ve got one of these on three rifles now, a .17 HMR, a .22lr, and a .22 Mag. The body feels solid and looks nice, but more importantly the glass is clear, turret adjustments are precise and have a good tactile feel, and it holds zero just fine. The one on my .22 mag has been exposed to both extreme cold and heat, as well as snow, rain, a dust storm, and has iced up with sleet, and it has held up just fine with no issues at all. Eye relief at max power is a little more finicky than more expensive scopes, but it’s nothing that can’t be easily compensated for and it’s forgivable at this price. The simple Duplex reticle is clear and precise, but it’s a very basic design so you won’t be ranging with the scope and will need to know how your rifle shoots so you can hold to compensate for drop at longer distances. Don’t be dumb; this isn’t a $500+ rifle scope, but it performs as good if not better than $200 Vortex and Nikon optics.
Perfect for 5.56 bench gun and 22lr

Perfect for 5.56 and 22lr. Originally mounted an an 18" 5.56 for about 300 rounds with no issues. Ended up putting on a single shot 22lr, i have no complaints. Good quality for tue price.
Great for the money.

I have this scope mounted on a Crickett Precision Rifle and for the price, the glass on is pretty awesome. Turrets are GREAT! Loudest, cleanest, and tactile clicks I've ever felt on a scope. They are capped unfortunately, but for the cost I don't expect anything else. I think the reticle might be a slightly bit canted 1 or 2 degrees, but that might just be the one I got. The eye relief is a little finicky, especially at 9x. You really have to have your eye at the exact relief or there is scope shadow. Nice thin duplex reticle and very basic. For what I'm using it for I don't think I will ever have any issues. Overall, a great scope for what you pay for. Its not a little whimpy scope either.
WAY better than expected.

I purchased this scope awhile back, but never really ended up using it. recently my scope on my 223 bolt action broke right before a range outing, so I threw this on and took off. honestly this scope is beautiful looking. really bright and clear image. Im not sure how it will hold up over time, but I put about 100 rounds down range over the 3.5 hours I was there with no issues.

Sighted her in at the range, literally 2cm to the left of factory setting at 50 yards. Banged around during a hog hunt and smeared mud all over the thing. Washed off on the boat and sight picture is just as clear. Still holds zero. Got bored one day, stuck the scope under my truck tire and backed over it a couple of times. Scoped fared just fine, point of impact shifted 1 nanometer.
<br>Yeah, I'd say I got my hundred bucks out of this thing.
5 Stars for under $100.
OK, it's not a $300+ scope. Something's gotta give. All I can see is there is a little distortion. Very clear glass. Plenty of light with the 30 mm tube. Very little black ring around the field of view when looking through it. Know what I mean... That black ring between the scope view and peripheral view outside the scope. If you look through a cheap Nikon, you know what I mean. I hate that thick black ring. It seems like it is taking up most of the field of view. This scope does not have that thick black ring. It has a nice field of view. For under $100, this scope is 5 stars.
