I have had several and I was not happy with them.

The glass appeared good and the adjustments were OK ."BUT" mine failed after a few shots.
and had to be replaced.

The warranty was good but the hassle of changing scopes after a few shots became a nuisance.

It appears that they are recoil sensitive but you should be OK with the 222.

I have tried many of the less expensive scopes and came to the conclusion that it is cheaper
to buy a mid priced scope in the long run.

Good luck with yours !

Re: Ncstar-honest opinions

We should take all the NC Star Optics and give them to the enemy. then our troops will be safe.

all Jokes aside. Anytyhing made by NC Star is a Poor Exscuse for an Optic. The are many brands that don't cost an arm an a leg that will perform adequately.

Re: Ncstar-honest opinions

Ncstar scopes inhibit target resolution.

You're better off with no sights at all; in the long run, just by peering down the barrel, the law of averages will get you more boolits on target.
