IOR SCOPES

I would like to know what you guys think of these scopes?
Other than some of the dialogue on this website, I am very unfamiliar with these scopes.
I was on the IOR website and the 4 x 14 x 50mm with a 30mm tube caught my eye and the price listed is $995.00.
Is this scope worth buying or should a guy look elsewhere.
Any help would be great.

    Re: IOR SCOPES

    I have 3 IOR scopes and am getting ready to buy another one when they come out with the new 3-18 model. I only have experience with the 6x multiplier scopes with the 35mm tubes not their standard version of scopes with the 30mm tubes. I love the MP-8 Reticle. The target dot in the center is really nice for close fast shots. I have the 2-12x35 on my M1A and shoot out to 1000 yards every month with it. I have a 1.5-8x26 on my 16" barreled AR-15 that you can use with both eyes open similar to a red dot but you still have an 8 power for zooming in on squirels. I just bought a 3-18x42 and even though it is not mounted yet on my 300 win mag I expect I will be just as happy with it as the two others I have. The glass is really clear, better than a Leupold. All the 35mm tube scopes comes with rings (TPS) that you choose the height and the 3-18 comes with a sunshade. I can not say enough about these scope and I have not had any issues with them at all.

    Nope second plain..just like most other scopes,they used to be front but???
    One interesting thing with the 6-24s is the MP-8 turns from a genII milldot to MOA spaceing if you set the power to 18x

    Re: IOR SCOPES

    Is that "just the way" the math works out or is it was designed???

    Also I thought that the IOR MP-8 ret. was MOA????

    Re: IOR SCOPES

    To my knowledge the MP-8 is a milldot design, meaning the hashes are ment to be mill apart when the scope is set at 10x I believe? I just happened to stumble on the MOA thing while playing with power when I was viewing a 1" grid target.
