    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 !

    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.

    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.
