Re: millett scope

I've heard mixed reviews. My local gun shop has some. The look great, not sure on their performance. I was thinking of doing a Mosin Archangel build and strapping one of those on it. Let me know what you think of it!

Re: millett scope

Mounted a 4x16X56 for my brother-in-law's Remington 700 in 7mm Rem. He is blind as a bat. Shot sub MOA and a very nice muley two months later. The scope turrets respond correctly and parallax adjust fine. Milldot reticle is clearly seen, but he has trouble with the focus. He really likes the scope and calls it the "Hubble Telescope".

Re: millett scope

I had one and sold it simply because it was heavy. But, it had real good glass and tracked perfectly. After final sighting it never moved through 2 years of all kinds of varmint hunting. I believe they are worth what you pay for them and more.
