    I've got one for my 7.62 x 51 and I like it - clear and bright. With that said, I find myself always wanting more power in the scope - aim small, miss small :D

    I'm not a hater. I had it mounted on a Ruger Super Redhawk in .44 mag. I have pics on photobucket, but you know what a mess that is now.
    Sold it because I had nothing else to put it on to be clear.

    No offense but the Bushnell clone isn't the same. Actually I think it's a piece of crap compared to be real thing. Do they even make one more than 2x?

    The guy I sold it to sold it later as well. It would have been ok for a rifle dedicated for short range work. He tried a magnifier on it, but still didn't work for him.

    @steelfingers - If i could comfortably afford the ACOG, I would purchase it without a question. Like I said, they work well and are very durable, at least the one's I had issued to me. Like @doctorjj pointed out, they will assist in rapid target acquisition at yardage from 800 and below well on silhouettes. I may have misrepresented my point earlier as it was purely financial and I am a poor retired guy. lol

    Back in the day a fixed 10x was issue for Marine and Army snipers. They made shots a whole lot farther than 800. I think the quality of the glass makes the biggest difference. Trijicon glass is pretty good and off of the bench I could ring steel at 300 all day with my Comp M2 Aimpoint at 1X and a 4mil dot. It was downright boring. 4X will go a lot farther than most think, it's pretty much the indian instead of the arrow.

    Only complaint I have with the ACOG is that on a bright sunny day, you can't turn down the brightness. Kinda of like staring into a flashlight. I use the Aimpoint/Eotech's exclusively at about 1/4th the cost.
