Since this post is from 2004, I would be interested in long term experience with this scope. I would like to buy a used one, hence the question.
I've got one on a Savage 12FV .223...I like it a LOT. Better than my Monarch 5-20x44, which is a great scope itself. I find it is very sharp, even at 32x.
The 8-32 is elevation limited with 26MOA of internal adjustment, but that's nothing Signature Zee rings with inserts or a 20MOA base can't fix. I happen to have 18MOA of up adjustment from 100yd zero using Leupold two-piece bases & Leupold standard rings on a Savage 12FV .223; that's enough to get my 75gr HPBT out to 600yd.
I'm thinking about selling it and the Monarch to get a FFP tactical scope, but that has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of scope...just cash flow.
