This scope is every bit as good as the NXS line if not better especially when you consider weight.

I really like it for hunting. The light weight and compact size are perfect for packing around. My complaints are what you will fin on the net. At top power, 25x on mine, the eyebox is really unforgiving. Not a huge deal shooting from a bench or long range at an animal, but it is an issue. The glass quality at top power isn't the greatest, but still better than most scopes. I would say it is better than all scopes I've viewed with a 42mm objective, of which none had this high of power. If you choose sfp like I did, and choose to hold over this won't be an issue. Your reticle is true at 20x, so for the MPR3 has 2 MOA spacing. Everything about the scope I love, clicks are awesome, zero stop is idiot proof...
I have the MOA version. Their new 52mm Scopes look awesome, and almost bet the issues with mine are resolved with those.
