I got on here to ask the same question.

Mine came in the mail today and I mounted it on my rifle. I got to look through it in my backyard(I live in the city) right at nightfall. It was hard to find the reticle at first but once I adusted the fast focus eyebell it came in perfectly. Lens seemed clear up to 20x but could not get a good focus after that. Again this was right at dark. I am hoping to be able to shoot it sometime this week. I am just learning how to dial for yardage so I want to see how this does. My biggest complaint is the scope caps. The front cap is a joke. Everytime I went to flip it open the entire thing came off.

Re: New sightron LRMOA?

I hear you Walker1. My caps are as reliable as a second hand lawn mower. The front one is split and falls off, the eyepiece one fell off the other day whilst hunting and I stumbled across it on my way back to the vehicle.

I am looking out for after market ones but I'd like ones which fold right around onto the scope. Know of any?

Re: New sightron LRMOA?

Ok I got to shoot mine today. This replaced my Zeiss that was originally on it. I would have to say the Zeiss has better glass. I also had an issue with the blacked out lense when I looked through it. Could this be because I am using low rings and maybe I should go to the mediums? I also have 20MOA bases. Originally I had the rings spaced out as far as possible and it took quite a bit of adjustment to get a 100yrd zero. I moved the rings closer together and was able to back it down about 16 clicks. What could I do to use less clicks to get a 100yrd zero? I must say that it tracks really well.
