Not as well as the S&B PMII but for 1/3 the price they're fully functional for my purposes. I also have a couple of Nightforces and, quite frankly for the half the price, I'll take the Sightron anytime. For a sniper crawling through mud and rocks the Nightforce has advantages from the standpoint of reliability, but I pamper my scopes and firearms so that'snot an issue for me.
